Lawrence Arabia - Chant Darling (2009/2021)
Lawrence Arabia’s Chant Darling is available on vinyl for the first time! Believed by the artist to be 'the latest and best of a recent plague of anniversary vinyl, Lawrence Arabia has decided to 'do' Chant Darling, celebrating the 12 & 1/2 year gap since the release of the first ever Taite Music Prize winning album, and a whole eighth of a century in the market.
Chant Darling was released worldwide in 2009/10 on Bella Union Records and features the popular song “Apple Pie Bed,” which won the 2009 APRA Silver Scroll, New Zealand’s top songwriting award.
Throughout 2009/10, Lawrence and his band performed almost 100 shows in Europe and North America in support of Chant Darling, including tours with Beach House, Cate Le Bon, Flight Of The Conchords and Crowded House, sessions for BBC Radio 2, 4 and 6Music, an NPR Tiny Desk Concert and a KCRW Morning Becomes Eclectic session.
Chant Darling was remastered for vinyl by Angus McNaughton at Auralux Mastering in Ōtepoti/Dunedin.
