TRACK LIST FOR NEW WILD BELLE ALBUM DREAMLAND UNVEILED; PRE-ORDER AVAILABLE NOW; RELEASE “OUR LOVE WILL SURVIVE” VIDEO‏

Chicago band Wild Belle’s (Natalie Bergman, Elliot Bergman) forthcoming album, DREAMLAND, is available for pre-order now. The release will be available physically and digitally on Columbia Records on April 15th.  The track listing for DREAMLAND has also been unveiled (see below), with the video for the new song “Our Love Will Survive.” The new video was filmed in Jamaica featuring vibrant performances from local dancers and was helmed  by director/multimedia artist Philippa Price, who has worked with Rihanna and Brooke Candy, among others.

“I have a place in my heart for Jamaica. That country has been very generous to me, and the people are so talented and filled with grace,” says Natalie. “We went to Jamaica with Super 8 cameras and 32 rolls of film and discovered an abandoned castle and a hardware store filled with 8 dollar machetes. We met beautiful twins with golden eyes. I brought a suitcase filled with leather and camouflage. We nearly got arrested by Jamaican policemen and I talked my way out of it. My eyes fell out in the Caribbean Sea shooting the underwater scenes.”

The duo’s current single “Throw Down Your Guns,” is also making an impact, with the video premiering on NPR Music two weeks ago. Self-directed by Elliot Bergman and produced by MAAVVEN, the video features the Chicago Children’s Choir as well as Chicago based footwork crew The ERA. NPR describes the video as “a powerful statement of peaceful protest.”  The clip complements the song’s themes of peace, unity and love, featuring various forms of weaponry – including guns and bullet casings – being melted down and crafted into beautiful bronze bells. “Throw Down Your Guns” has already has impacted Triple A radio and will be hitting Alternative Radio next month.

Wild Belle revealed the album’s cover art earlier in the month, comprised of a photo of Natalie taken by Elliot with a vintage Polaroid camera. Much of the album’s internal artwork is comprised of collages created by Natalie.

In support of DREAMLAND, the follow-up to their Columbia Records debut album Isles, Natalie and Elliot will embark on a 21-city headlining tour across the U.S. with their full band in tow.  The tour kicks off on April 22nd in Chicago, IL and concludes on May 20th in Minneapolis, MN. Full details and additional ticket information will be announced shortly; fans can visit www.wildbelle.com for updates and announcements.

DREAMLAND is the follow-up to their debut album Isles, which introduced a broad range of music fans to Wild Belle’s organic, distinctly original sound.  The album was praised for its unique blend of pop, reggae, and West African influences all tethered to vocalist Natalie Bergman’s dusty vocal style. Wild Belle began recording DREAMLAND in Jamaica and worked with an eclectic group of musicians that they pulled together including Doc McKinney, Pat Carney, and Brooklyn’s Dap Kings Homer Steinweiss and Nick Movshon.
