FAT FREDDY’S DROP ‘Slings & Arrows’
Musical juggernaut Fat Freddy’s Drop have just released Slings And Arrows, the first single from a new album. The single is the first to emerge from Freddy’s Bays studio jams, and was released the same week the band performed a sold out show at Alexandra Palace in London with it’s 10,000 strong capacity, with Mr Scruff on the support. The show is a highlight in Freddy’s Slings And Arrows World Tour that includes the band’s Japan and Thailand debut shows and a return to Australia.
Beat maker DJ Fitchie describes Slings And Arrows as, “musically the most reggae song we’ve ever made. We’ve gone back to our roots with a tough, conscious reggae tune that is classic Freddys.”
Slings And Arrows will be available on 7” as well as digital, dropping in New Zealand and Australia on 17th October followed by UK and Europe on 20th October. The as yet untitled new studio album is due for release in 2015.
