NED COLLETTE & WIREWALKER ALBUM LAUNCH TOUR

To celebrate the release of their much anticipated second album 2, set for release on Friday 11 May 2012 via Dot Dash / Remote Control, Ned Collette and Wirewalker will perform a string of album launches over June.

Russian-born, Israeli-raised and Berlin-based musician Mary Ocher will support all shows, with local supports to be announced.

It’s been over two years since Melbourne musician Ned Collette relocated to Berlin. Written mostly during Collette’s first year in the German capital, 2 explores themes of distance and restarting, taking up arms against the neighbours, fantasies of death and decline after the party, butterflies, salad, altering cities and forgotten home. The album also features an instrumental tribute to late Chilean writer Roberto Bolaño. Most of the album was recorded between Collette in Berlin and Joe Talia in Melbourne, with Talia spending six weeks in Berlin over May and June in 2011 to further expand on their recordings. Collette then came to Melbourne in October 2011 and finalised the mixes of nine songs, many of which have codas courtesy of Talia.

All tickets on sale Friday 20 April.

STREAM: NED COLLETTE & WIREWALKER ‘IL FUTURO FANTASTICO’

‘Il Futuro Fantastico’ is the new single from Ned Collette and Wirewalker, taken from their much anticipated second album 2, set for release on Friday 11 May 2012 via Dot Dash / Remote Control.

It’s been the over two years since Melbourne musician Ned Collette relocated to Berlin. Written mostly during Collette’s first year in the German capital, 2 explores themes of distance and restarting, taking up arms against the neighbours, fantasies of death and decline after the party, butterflies, salad, altering cities and forgotten home. The album also features an instrumental tribute to late Chilean writer Roberto Bolaño.

While this is the second Wirewalker record, the title 2 also refers to the fact that the album is essentially a collaboration between Collette and Talia, with regular Wirewalker member Ben Bourke taking time off to be with his young family in Melbourne.

Collette plays mostly Spanish guitar on 2 and is joined by various guest vocalists including Gemma Ray (UK), Laura Jean, Biddy Connor, Mirjam Smejkal (Germany) and Sascha Gersak (Germany). Both Smejkal and Gersak feature in the forthcoming film clip for album track ‘Long You Lie’, directed by Berlin-based filmmakers Lucy Dyson and Joseph Jensen.
