Sydney and Byron Bay collective Caravana Sun have announced their third studio album ‘Burning Palms’ today, and to celebrate, they've also shared a seminal new single titled 'Leave It Behind'. The ten track album, written and recorded all within the past twi years includes the previously released single ‘Charlie’, the intensely personal song ‘Stella’, and the psychedelic and euphoric ‘Afterlife'.
Speaking of the new single, the band explained, “Our song 'Leave It Behind’ was written in Munich, 2019. It’s a song about trust and courage in the face of adversity. At the time, we had no idea we were on the eve of a global pandemic. It became our anthem to keep traversing this deep fracture in the arts community and hold true to our connection to music and the profound impact it’s had on our lives.”
Although their new album was written whilst on tour in Munich and Lisbon, ‘Burning Palms’ is an album that sees Caravana Sun return to their roots and find appreciation in nature as it was recorded in a secluded space deep in the heart of the Blue Mountains, NSW Australia. Sonically the album lives and breathes in a way that means they could play the songs live, and is a celebration of the band’s longevity writing and performing together for over a decade.
Produced by Caravana Sun, and mixed by Andy Lawson (Death By Denim, Eskimo Jo, End of Fashion, Little Birdy) at Debaser Studio, Perth with additional mixing and engineered by Ian Pritchett at Laketree Mountain Studios, Blue Mountains, ‘Burning Palms’ showcases the band’s heartfelt introspective songwriting talent as they wrote and arranged every song on the album.
The band continued, “After ten years as a band, we’ve felt that no matter the music, the vibe of wanting to make music with friends always comes first. If we take care of each other, the music takes care of us.”
Caravana Sun fans will be delighted to know that their new album will be supported by a tour, which kicked off at the Tanks Arts Centre, Edge Hill in QLD on March 11th, then head onto the renowned Byron Bay Blues Festival on April 14th, before moving through to Margaret River on April 30th, to Exmouth on May 6th, Karratha, Broome, Fremantle and wrapping up in Sydney on August 27th.
