Walking Under Stars/Drinking From The Sun Restrung

Recorded 2 years apart but as companion pieces, the project ties together the band’s two previous ARIA #1, double platinum albums, ‘Walking Under Stars’ and ‘Drinking From The Sun’. Featuring a selection of tracks from each album, the songs have been rerecorded, remixed, and restructured with the 32-piece Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, plus the 20-piece Adelaide Chamber Singers Choir. Composer Jamie Messenger handled the orchestral arrangements on the album, with the whole project coming together under the guidance of the HILLTOP HOODS and NZ conductor Hamish McKeich.

To celebrate the release of the new album, HILLTOP HOODS will be undertaking their biggest and most adventurous domestic tour to date playing arenas in five capital cities. The Restrung Tour, which will see the only HILLTOP HOODS headline performances in 2016, promises to be an extraordinary event as it brings to life the music from ‘Drinking From The Sun, Walking Under Stars Restrung’ with Australia’s best orchestras and choirs. Once again, HILLTOP HOODS continue to rewrite the Hip Hop rule-book.
