Angus Stone Releases Solo Album, 'Broken Brights'; Out July 17

“Recording this album has been a very different experience for me. It’s an opportunity to be more loose and have a bit more fun. Recording with Julia is cool but we both have our hands on the wheel. This is an opportunity to grab the wheel and do some burn-outs,” says Stone.

Following the recent release of lead single, “Bird On The Buffalo,” Angus Stone announces full details of his upcoming solo album Broken Brights - out July 17 via Nettwerk Records.

Broken Brights marks a departure for Stone, and not just from recording with his long-term musical co-conspirator and sister, Julia. The album, produced by Angus, is also proof that he can deftly shift between genres without compromising his signature sound.

While title track “Broken Brights” is a return-to-form for Stone — it’s a nostalgic, dreamy tribute to our youth — “Bird On the Buffalo” is a livelier composition, incorporating distorted guitar riffs, which also make an appearance in the notably rockier “It Was Blue.” That string-laden track in particular is proof that his compositional skills transcend the preconceptions you might have about his musical style.

In the recording process, Stone has captured memories and imaginings from his pilgrimage around the planet. What he says about going solo could easily sum up the experience of listening to Broken Brights: “It’s a whole different trip.”

Last month, Angus released the visually stunning video for the track, featuring towering sand dunes, owls, wolves and model/actress, Isabel Lucas (Transformers, Immortals, Home And Away).
