One of New Zealand’s favourite women of song; Gin Wigmore earlier this week announced her third studio album ‘Blood To Bone’ will be released on Friday June 26th and launched the first single ‘New Rush’. Select Music are thrilled to announce that Gin Wigmore will return in early July to perform 2 exclusive Australian club shows to launch the eagerly anticipated new album.
Award winning NZ artist Gin Wigmore first caught the world’s attention with her 2009 debut Holy Smoke and the critically acclaimed blues-inspired follow up in 2011 titled, Gravel & Wine. ‘Blood To Bone’ finds the 28-year-old evolving from her roots to create an album loaded with diverse intent and assertion of her new found stride as a musician. For her, it’s an album of many firsts – she sits behind the piano, stretches her voice into falsetto, and steps into the role of co-producer. The end result is her most powerful release to date.
Diving into a variety of unchartered musical avenues with her new album, the first single ‘New Rush’, charges like a bull out of the gate, with its thunderous beats and Wigmore’s distinctive vocals. ‘New Rush’ was co-written with Charlie Andrews (Alt J & Laurel Collective) and recorded in Los Angeles and is available now on all digital partners.‘Blood To Bone’ was primarily recorded in Los Angeles, Gin’s new hometown, with various songwriters including Swedish musician and producer Joakim Ahlund and internationally renowned songwriter and producer Stuart Crichton.
