The video for “The Zombie,” the new single off the third full-length album from ARIA Award-winning Australian artist C.W. Stoneking, Gon’ Boogaloo, is premiering via Relix. Watch the video at http://bit.ly/2abGoIt and share it via http://vevo.ly/eorL4o.

Stoneking is currently on tour throughout North America in celebration of the release. See below for a list of dates; additional performances to be announced shortly.

Hailing from Australia’s remote Northern Territory, Stoneking grew up listening to gospel, ragtime and Chicago blues, citing American musicians including Son House, Robert Johnson, Skip James and Bukka White among his earliest influences. “When I first heard it I thought it was kinda funny music,” Stoneking explains, “because it was so deconstructed and not really adhering to any rules that I’d been told music [should] fit into.” The Guardian notes that “you get the impression that he is so completely immersed in the era of the earliest folk recordings that his shambling, clattering sound is a default setting, not an artistic choice. Hearing Stoneking perform live is, somehow, like listening to an old ‘78 recovered from a dusty attic in New Orleans.”

Stoneking’s debut album, 2006’s King Hokum, garnered extensive critical praise in his native Australia. ABC Radio National’s “Breakfast” named it the 2006 Album of the Year and it was nominated for Best Blues/Roots Album at the ARIA Music Awards. His follow-up, 2008’s Jungle Blues, won the ARIA for Best Blues/Roots Album and was nominated for Best Independent Release, Best Male Artist and Best Album Cover Art. The album was also shortlisted for the Australian Music Prize and saw Stoneking perform the tracks “Jungle Blues” and “Jungle Lullaby” on “Later…with Jools Holland” during his European tour.
