Chart-topping, critically acclaimed siblings, Angus & Julia Stone have announced details of their forthcoming sixth studio album 'Cape Forestier'. This will be the duo’s first release with Sony Music Entertainment Australia . Alongside details of the new record, they have also shared the stunning first single ‘The Wedding Song’, accompanied by a poignantly beautiful official music video, a heartfelt montage of footage from their fans’ weddings.
'Cape Forestier' plays like a storybook from the hearts and minds of Angus & Julia Stone, with each song revealing itself as a different page. Reminiscent of their earlier records, the songs move from love stories like ‘My Little Anchor’ or the soaring 'Somehow,' a burning tale of unrequited love, to the likes of 'Down To The Sea' that explore a unique view of society and what goes on around us. Together, the tracks on Cape Forestier are strikingly emotive and textured recordings that immediately draw listeners into the simple and endearing vision of Angus andJulia Stone's world.
Discussing the first single they say, "‘The Wedding Song’ was originally written for a friend's wedding years ago. Since then, we've been honoured to play it at several friends’ and family’s weddings, including our mum’s, and we received so many requests from fans for a proper recording to use on their special day, so we decided to make that happen.”
“We chose it as the first single from our upcoming record because it's all about love. The song is a celebration of love and human connection. In a world that can feel disconnected and frightening, we want to share something that reflects the beauty of how humans choose to treat each other, love each other, and make promises to build something beautiful together.”
Describing the making of the video they say, “We had hundreds of videos capturing incredibly loving moments in people's lives from all over the world. It reinforces the idea that, ultimately, we all share the same desire: to love and be loved”.
