Hilltop Hoods make their highly anticipated return with their brand new album Walking Under Stars. Set to drop through their own label Golden Era Records this is the Hilltop Hoods first album since 2012s Drinking From The Sun, an album that changed the game, becoming the groups third consecutive #1 album which went gold on the day of its release and certified platinum within one week.
The aptly titled record showed that Australian hip hop was enjoying its time in the sun, no longer an underground scene but an aural assault that had pushed down the barriers that held back some of the country’s best MCs from critical acclaim.
Following up an album and hot streak such as this for any crew would be a difficult project, but not for this crew. The trio has managed to once again push the envelope for Australian hip hop with the incendiary Walking Under Stars. First tastes of the record The Art of the Handshake and Won’t Let You Down feat. Maverick Sabre have introduced us to the next chapter of this crew’s career.
The new album also features Western Australian SBX crew legend in Drapht and Australian music master Dan Sultan, plus New Zealand’s leading songstress, Aaradhna.
The exclusive JB Hi-Fi version features the bonus remix track “The Art of The Handshake (Plutonic Lab Remix)”.
