Aldous Harding Announces Party and Tour Dates

New Zealand singer-songwriter Aldous Harding will release her sophomore album, Party on 19 May.

After sharing the striking single Horizon, Harding has also revealed European and US tour dates, beginning with a performance at The Great Escape festival in Brighton, England.

Produced by John Parish in Bristol, the record, her first on new label 4AD, features contributions from Perfume Genius’ Mike Hadreas as well as Bristol folk singer Fenne Lily.

Harding has also shared a new video for latest single Imagining My Man, directed once again by Charlotte Evans. It tracks her movements through the city of Auckland, and in a statement Harding herself said: “It has a fluidity that works nicely. I couldn’t think of anything that would work better. I want people to feel calm; I was just trying to look friendly. It was also lovely being driven around Auckland city, I hadn’t done that in a while.”

Harding is originally from Lyttelton.
