New single ‘Battleships’ sees Fanning emerge in a seething wall of sound, doused in falsetto, growling guitars and throaty horns.
'Battleships' is taken from Departures, the highly-anticipated follow-up to Fanning’s 5 x Platinum solo debut Tea & Sympathy - a release that earned him four ARIA Awards, including ‘Album of the Year’, two APRA Awards and a #1 placing in triple j’s Hottest 100 with ‘Wish You Well’. Not to mention his overwhelming success as frontman of Powderfinger, selling over 2.5 million records, earning 18 ARIA Awards and five #1 album debuts.
For Fanning, the album is a departure in every sense of the word; a move almost in defiance of his Powderfinger roots and the acoustic sensibilities so clearly displayed on Tea & Sympathy.
Leaving behind homeland Australia, and all its creature comforts, Fanning penned ‘Battleships’ in Spain before recording at Los Angeles’ renowned Sunset Sound (Fleetwood Mac, The Rolling Stones, Tom Waits, Neil Young) with producer Joe Chiccarelli (The Raconteurs, Augie March, My Morning Jacket).
