The Naked And Famous Unveil ‘A Still Heart’

With three albums under their belt, a US platinum single for “Young Blood” and a wildly successful tour with Blink 182, New Zealand’s The Naked And Famous have unveiled their latest offering for 2017, A Still Heart, an acoustic medley of A Stillness and Hearts Like Ours from their 2013 release “In Rolling Waves . Taken from their upcoming Stripped” LP, the band explores their singles from an acoustic perspective breathing new life into their euphoric hits.

Available worldwide today, A Still Heart continues to affirm The Naked And Famous as one of the most compelling international acts around. Always pushing new boundaries and genres to explore, The Naked And Famous are that rare group who continue to defy expectations with each release. Listen to A Still Heart” HERE.

When discussing the inspiration for the project, vocalist/guitarist Thom Powers explains,  “I think Elvis Costello is originally credited with saying something to the effect of, ‘You have your whole life to create your first album and one year to finish your follow-up.’ I’d like to add to that: you also have your whole life to create your first record and, if it is successful, you’ll be asked to perform acoustic versions of your songs. Seven years later, we decided to approach this as a creative challenge – an exercise in limitation. The songs feel reborn. Ironically this is very true to where Alisa and I began as collaborators!”

This year has seen The Naked And Famous wow critics and audiences across the globe with their infectious energy, performing to massive crowds at such festival as Austin City Limits and V Festival. A Still Heart is a glimpse of what is to come from the band and merely a warm up for 2018.
