Hiatus Kaiyote - Get Sun (feat. Arthur Verocai) + Mood Valiant Announcement
March 16 2021
June 25 2021
Kaiyote’s hiatus is over.
June 25th 2021 marks the date for their third album, Mood Valiant, after 2013’s Tawk Tomahawk and 2015’s Choose Your Weapon.
They’ve also given us a song from Mood Valiant to soundtrack the months of spring ahead: ‘Get Sun (feat. Arthur Verocai)'.
The track opens with blissful horns, a touch that isn’t normally used by Hiatus Kaiyote but suits their music perfectly. The first few bars immediately bring back the elation you get from their unique music, like being greeted by an old friend.
The collaboration with the legendary Arthur Verocai adds to the excitement of this release, and anyone who hasn’t listened to his self-titled album from 1972 should get on that right away.
Despite the long wait, the Melbourne band hasn’t been silent since the release of Choose Your Weapon in 2015. Their single, ‘Christmas Time Is Here’ came out in 2020 (because who wouldn’t want a Kaiyote Christmas track?) and we were also graced with Nai Palm’s acoustic album, Needle Paw, in 2017.
Hiatus Kaiyote have also been touring and performing including some nights in Europe in the latter half of 2019.
The release of ‘Get Sun’ however feels like the most exciting announcement for fans since 2015.
Choose Your Weapon was an album very much in the Before Time and the world has changed dramatically since their last full studio album.
With the announcement of Mood Valiant, however, the taste of hope is in the air. Get you some. Get sun.
