Fly My Pretties fifth album out now

Fly My Pretties fifth album, The Homeland Recordings is out now.


Click for big version.

Although just released, the album is already garnering great feedback with the NZHerald awarding it 4 stars and saying about it: “…languid, warm and intimate, it captures the small town spirit of the many towns [they] visited”.

Recorded live in small venues throughout the country, the album reflects the very best live takes of songs performed to over 13,000 fans during the nationwide, 23-date Homeland tour.

Beginning at Aotearoa’s tip in Kaitaia and ending in the Southern-most city of Invercargill, the tour saw the 12-strong cast journey to 18 different towns and subsequently, delve deep into heartland New Zealand.

The result is something truly special: 13 tracks, captured live, which herald a welcome return to Fly My Pretties musical roots: an unashamedly kiwi sound steeped in folk, roots, soul and rock.

A collective with a revolving line-up led by Barnaby Weir (The Black Seeds), The Homeland cast saw perhaps the most exciting mix of musicians assembled to date including: Anika Moa, Mel Parsons, Ria Hall, Kara Gordon, Louis McDonald (Five Mile Town), Mark Vanilau, Ryan Prebble (The Nudge), Shaun Blackwell (John The Baptist) & members of The Black Seeds: Jarney Murphy, Mike Fabulous, Nigel Patterson and of course, Barnaby Weir.

Fly My Pretties – The Homeland Recordings available from all good record stores including The Warehouse, JB Hi-Fi , iTunes and Bandcamp.
