Stan Walker to Release New Album ‘Inventing Myself’

Stan Walker to Release New Album ‘Inventing Myself’ to Be Released October 25th


After making dreams come true for New Zealanders all over the country during his role as a judge on The X Factor New Zealand this year, Stan Walker has had a dream of his own granted – to support his idol, Beyoncé on the New Zealand leg of her ‘The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour’ this October.

The exciting news doesn’t end there for Stan, as he prepares to release his fourth studio album  ‘Inventing Myself’ due for release on October 25th. ‘Inventing Myself’ will be available to pre-order from October 4th, Stan’s brand new single ‘Like It’s Over featuring Ria Hall’ will be offered as an instant grat track when the album is pre-ordered.

‘Inventing Myself’ will also feature the smash singles, multi-platinum ‘Take It Easy’, platinum single ‘Bulletproof’ and recent single ‘Inventing Myself’.

Stan says, “I have been working on this album for the last two years and it’s finally time to bring it out. This is the best work I’ve ever done and it is also the first time that I have worked on an album in New Zealand. I’m so proud!”

Stan Walker is well and truly a kiwi favourite this year, having sat on the judging panel for the first season of The X Factor NZ followed by the most extensive tour of New Zealand since the seventies that has seen him play 23 shows across the country through September to rave reviews. 

One of the country’s most popular artists, Stan has sold over 170,000 singles and close to 100,000 albums to date, collecting 5 New Zealand Music Awards along the way.

Stan also made his acting debut in February this year, playing the lead role of Turei in the feature film ‘Mt Zion’. ‘Mt Zion’ debuted at #1 at the NZ box office, quickly taking over $1 million, and securing a successful Australian release. ‘Mt Zion’ also won the NZ Box Office Achievement Award for Highest Grossing New Zealand Film for 2013 and the Flicks People’s Choice Award for Movie of the Year. ‘Take It Easy,’ Stan’s single from the film, also held a number one New Zealand chart position and gained double platinum sales.
