Don McGlashan's Lucky Stars Tour

On Friday April 17 pre-eminent singer/songwriter Don McGlashan unveiled Lucky Stars, his rich new collection of 10 highly personal songs exploring love, regret and mortality. The record contains many songs which are very personal reflections on his own life and thoughts: “This time, I don’t seem to be adopting characters to explore an idea. For this album I don't seem to be taking on a role to get an idea across . . . the 'I' is generally me in these songs”.

Don McGlashan started the raw material for this new album at a bach on the Thames Estuary, before realising them in Neil Finn's writing room at Roundhead Studio, Auckland with guitarist Tom Rodwell.

He produced them with former Mutton Birds bandmate David Long, (who also contributes some textural guitar, organ and banjo) and enlisted former Seven Sisters and current Phoenix Foundation drummer Chris O’Connor.

“I didn’t add many players, but the ones who did come on board are such distinctive musicians that they ended up adding more than I dreamed was possible”, Don says. “I went away to the bach, imagining that I would write a rather solitary, introspective record, but what came out had a lot more joy and optimism than I expected.”

The release comes with the reveal of the playful, hand-animated video for the eponymous single Lucky Stars, released just last week. The highly anticipated Lucky Stars tour will take to the road come June 2015, with an epic string of tour dates around the country, when Don will joined on stage by Tom Rodwell and Chris O'Connor for two sets of music each night. See below for details and be sure to catch Don performing songs from this very different and emotionally direct album.
