Back in 2013, Empire of the Sun released their second album, ‘Ice on the Dune’ the follow up to their smash first album ‘Walking on a Dream’ and now they’ve announced their third album called ‘Two Vines’, and it’s out October 28 via Astralwerks.

Two Vines was recorded in Hawaii and Los Angeles, and it was co-produced by Empire of the Sun and Peter Mayes (Sia, the Killers, Mika). Featuring contributions from Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham, Wendy Melvoin (from Prince’s band the Revolution), and pianist Henry Hey and bassist Tim Lefebvre, both members of David Bowie’s Blackstarband.

We are excited, very excited… Cue Spotify to re-listen to both previous albums in preparation, we’ve selected one of our faves below..

Nick Littlemore said, “There was an image we talked about very early on with this record, before we wrote the title track, ‘Two Vines,’ and that was this image of a modern city overtaken by jungle, almost like mother nature taking back the planet. He added, “All the buildings will turn back to sand. All it will be is nature again. We wanted to make something that reflected the beauty of that, and the wisdom that plants can give us about living harmoniously on this beautiful planet.”

Emperor Luke Steele said of recording in Hawaii, “Going to Hawaii to record was the best idea. That was the catalyst for me. I’d spend the morning surfing, then roll in and make music into the night.”

The album will be led by the single “High and Low.” Find the full tracklisting

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
