It’s no secret that NZ’s resident pop song-book connoisseur Lawrence Arabia has a penchant for penning ear worms at once inspired and unsettling. His 2009 single Apple Pie Bed took out the prestigious APRA Silver Scroll, positioning Mr Arabia (real name James Milne) in the great Kiwi song hall of fame.

Fast forward a few years and the enigmatic chanteur is back, on the cusp of releasing his fourth solo album. Milne’s songwriting has reached a commanding new level of skill and control in the years following Chant Darling; 2012’s The Sparrow was a sparse, dark affair stripped back its essentials - stark imagery and unflappable hooks. Following The Sparrow came the birth of Milne’s first child, meaning that the songs to follow were written amidst “hazy post-partum exhaustion”, in Milne’s own words. “It wasn't a time for self-indulgence or misery. Even the tiniest free moment of reflection felt like a blessing.”

The result is Arabia’s strongest yet - aptly named Absolute Truth.

Lawrence Arabia is set to take Absolute Truth on tour with his full band around New Zealand in July. Performing at an array of charming venues around the country, be among the first to see Lawrence Arabia deliver his latest and greatest cluster of pop gems with the magic only he can muster.
