‘Blank’ is the newest sip of the Melbourne MC/songwriter’s first full-length album, Authentic Lemonade. Due Friday 2 October (via It’s Official Music/Warner), the 12-track effort includes last year’s ‘Numbers’ single and the big hit, ‘Swing’, featuring Mantra and Bliss N Eso’s DJ Izm.
They’re not the only guests on the record, Cam Bluff – star hip hop producer to Hilltop Hoods, Illy, Allday – co-produces alongside Dylan. He’s also enlisted some top-tier musicians for Authentic Lemonade, namely drummer Tim Coghill (who smashed the skins on Matt Corby’s ‘Brother’) and NYC horn wizard Igmar Thomas (who blows for peeps like Bilal, John Legend, Macy Gray).
Currently warming the stage on Seth Sentry’s mammoth national tour, Dylan Joel will return to the road for a national album tour later this year. He’ll perform shows in Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Canberra, Sydney, Wollongong, and Geelong in October. Adeliade and Perth will get a visit in November.
