Hilltop Hoods make their highly anticipated return to the airwaves this month with their brand new single ‘I Love It’ Feat. Sia, which is set to drop through their own label Golden Era Records/UMA today, with production by South Australian newcomer One Above.
The single features arrangements from Jamie Messenger performed by the Bacchanalia String Quartet. It also features a special guest performance by Sia in her first collaboration with the Hoods. Their first single since 2009 and the first taste of their impending album, Drinking From The Sun, the single release also coincides with the bands first live appearances in almost 18 months as they head out on the road with Eminem in December and Big Day Out in January.
Due out February 2012 Drinking From The Sun speaks to the experience of being part of an underground culture that’s risen from obscurity to gain mainstream recognition. Even though this album is more introspective than their previous releases it maintains a balance of moody tracks and party joints that the Hoods are best known for. The album also has a fair amount of live instrumentation, and will feature a number of local and international guests.
The forthcoming release looks set to build on the success that has seen Hilltop Hoods win multiple ARIA awards, achieve double platinum album sales and play to sold out venues around Australia as well as overseas.
I love It is released today – Grab it now. – Drinking From The Sun will be released February 2012
