Hilltop Hoods have officially announced their return with the brand new single Won’t Let You Down, featuring Maverick Sabre. Set to drop Friday, 27th June via the band’s own label Golden Era Records/UMA, it’s the first single to be taken from their forthcoming album Walking Under Stars.
The band’s first single since 2012 is available to pre-order now through iTunes. Slinky bonus track The Art Of The Handshake, which the band recently shared with fans via SoundCloud, will be included for those who purchase the single via the one-week pre-order period. Get it over here.
“Won’t Let You Down is something really different for us, something quite soulful. Maverick Sabre adds an element that we’ve never known before. He has a unique voice and style of delivery… it’s one of the most personal songs on the album, and one of our favourites,” said Hoods member Suffa.
The track, recorded in London earlier this year, will receive its exclusive premiere on Triple J’s drive program when Suffa chats with The Doctor on Tuesday, 24th June at 4:30PM. In the meantime, check out the first part of a series of Hilltop Hoods mini-docs made in collaboration with Red Bull.
The short documentaries follow the boys’ journey over the past couple of years and remind us all why Hilltop Hoods continue to be a powerful force within the ever-expanding Australian hip-hop community and the greater Aussie music industry. To add to the excitement, the band recently told fans via Facebook that they’re busy rehearsing for a world tour with Australian dates coming “soon.”
