Brisbane superstars Sheppard have confirmed the long-awaited release of their third album ‘Kaleidoscope Eyes’.
It’s been a big year for the band already, having dropped new tracks every month across the course of 2020.
The last, ‘Brand New’, dropped at the end of last month, so we’re expecting another to land within days.
All of the tracks have been building towards the release of the new long player, which brings together all the colours and elements of the tracks released so far, along with many more.
“Somewhere along the album’s journey, I became obsessed with the idea of a kaleidoscope,” George explains. “To most people it might just be a tube with pretty shards of glass, but to us it represented so much more.”
“Each time you look into a kaleidoscope, you are looking at something in a new light,” adds Amy. “It’s often bittersweet, because the slightest change can shift the entire picture forever. On the other hand, if you continue to tumble, you’ll eventually find new beauty in a different arrangement of the same pieces. It’s a strangely beautiful metaphor for love and how the world seems much brighter when you’re in love. That message has managed to wind its way throughout the entire record.”
Sheppard are due to perform at the 2020 AFL Grand Final at the Gabba this Saturday.
The album, the follow-up to 2018’s ‘Watching The Sky’, will land at retailers everywhere on Friday February 19.
