Written by Ladi6 and Parks, “Ikarus” was recorded at Studio A in Detroit, Michigan which was the recording home of legendary hip hop producer JDilla. The new music video for ‘Ikarus’ is directed by celebrated New Zealand artist and director Askew One and the single was mastered by Tom Coyne, who has earned acclaim for his previous work with Beyonce, Adele and D’Angelo.
The upcoming album is the follow up to the 2010 released ‘The Liberation Of…’, which was certified Gold in NZ and spawned the Platinum-selling Top 10 single ‘Like Water’. In 2011 Ladi6 picked up two New Zealand Music awards (Best Urban album and Best Female Artist), two Pacific Music Awards (Best Pacific Urban album and Best Female Artist) and ‘The Liberation Of..’ won the prestigious Taite Music Prize.
Ladi6’s upcoming third album is co-produced by Parks and Detroit native producer Waajeed. It will be released in June 2013.
