Hilltop Hoods have announced a special new orchestral album, Drinking From the Sun, Walking Under Stars Restrung, and an accompanying national tour, their most ambitious yet, for next April.
MCs Pressure and Suffa joined Matt & Alex on triple j Breakfast this morning to exclusively announce the new Restrung project and share two new songs.
A spiritual sequel to 2007’s The Hard Road: Restrung, the new 19-track album (due February 19 but available for pre-order from 8 December) ties together the Hoods’ two #1 double platinum albums Walking Under Stars and Drinking From the Sun.
Drinking From the Sun, Walking Under Stars Restrung was recorded with the 32-piece Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and the 20 piece Adelaide Chamber Singers Choir. Composer Jamie Messenger handled the orchestral arrangements and NZ conductor Hamish McKeich guides the musicians.
“We’ve taken six songs from our last two albums … and we’ve gone and hit up an orchestra again,” said MC Suffa. “We’ve recorded a full album [and] we’ve recorded about seven new songs as well.”

Pressure and Suffa also gave Matt & Alex the first play of ‘I’m A Ghost (Restrung)’ and ‘Higher’, a fresh joint featuring vocals by James Chatburn a singer-songwriter and previous feature Unearthed artist the Hoods discovered through their APRA initiative earlier this year. ‘Higher’ is officially released tomorrow.

To celebrate the album release, the Hilltop Hoods will be hitting the road, playing arenas in five capital cities with Australia’s best orchestras and choirs, for ‘The Restrung Tour’ – the group’s only headline shows for 2016.
“We’re pretty excited… The songs are going to take on a whole new life with fifty plus musicians joining us on stage” Suffa said.
Joining as special guest on the tour will be Hoods collaborator Maverick Sabre, marking the London-born, rural Ireland-raised singers’ first ever trip to Australia.
“Maverick is our guy. I can’t wait to get him out here and get people seeing what he does, he’s amazing,” the rappers declared.
