New Zealand juggernaut Fat Freddy’s Drop announce the release of their new studio album 'Special Edition Part 1' in November and without further ado drop the single "Kamo Kamo" to whet appetites.

Part 1 of a double album, 'Special Edition Part 1' was recorded at the band’s Wellington studio, 'BAYS'. Of the six tracks, "Raleigh Twenty", "Trickle Down" and "Six-Eight Instrumental" were written undercover in the studio while the other tracks, "Special Edition", "Kamo Kamo", and "OneFourteen" have all evolved on the road with audiences worldwide.

Watch the video for "Kamo Kamo" above. The late-night steppers exploration is a modern roots reggae fry-up with buttery vocals, compass point keys, salty snares and horn riffs echoing across the horizons.

The new album follows previous releases 'BAYS', 'Blackbird', 'Dr Boondigga & The Big BW' and record-breaking 'Based on a True Story'.

'Special Edition Part 1' will be released digitally on 15th November with Vinyl LP & CD Available Early December.

The cover artwork is by Wellington artist Otis Chamberlain, a continuing evolution from his creation for the album’s first single "Trickle Down".
