Pip Brown AKA Ladyhawke is set to return to Aussie shores this October with a very exciting treat: her forthcoming record Time Flies. Announced today, the album will be out on Friday, 8th October, with the tour to follow later in the month.
Not only is she announcing the tour and the forthcoming record, but today, she’s also treating us to the second single from the album, titled ‘Mixed Emotions’. Listen to that below.
Her four-stop Time Flies tour will be her first time returning to Aussie shores in five years. She’ll be kicking off the tour at The Triffid in Brisbane, followed by Miami Marketta on the Gold Coast, The Factory in Sydney and then a week later, she’ll wrap up her tour at Melbourne’s Corner Hotel.
“It seems unreal to be announcing a tour after the last year we’ve all had, but since the travel bubble has been announced I’m able to now tour Australia,” the New Zealand-based artist said in a statement.
“This is honestly something I couldn’t see happening for ages, so here it is!! I’m doing some shows!! I hope to see you all soon!!”
‘Mixed Emotions’ was written with PNAU and Empire Of The Sun‘s Jono Sloan and Nick Littlemore. You may recall that she collaborated with PNAU on their 2020 single ‘River’. The track throws back to her earlier, synth-heavy repertoire.
“Mixed Emotions was written with old mates Jono Sloan and Nick Littlemore while I was on a writing trip in LA,” she said.
“Sloan had come up with a really cool bass groove which Nick and I riffed over to get the lyrics and melody. The song is about all the things you can feel with one person, sometimes all in a single day. Ups and downs, confusion, highs, and lows. And everything in between!”
Frontier Members can access pre-sale, which kicks off at 12PM AEST on Wednesday, 2nd June for 24 hours. General tickets will go on sale at 12PM AEST on Friday, 4th June.
