Sydney three-piece Little May have revealed their highly anticipated debut album For The Company, produced by Aaron Brooking Dessner (The National), will be released October 9 via Dew Process/Universal Music Australia. The highly anticipated album includes ‘Hide’ as a bonus track, which is taken from the band’s 2014 debut EP.
The other good news for fans is that Little May will play four live shows in Australia this September before embarking on an extensive tour of the US, UK and Europe including shows at Reading Festival, Leeds Festival and Electric Picnic in August.
During April and May of 2015, Annie Hamilton, Liz Drummond and Hannah Field, along with their band, comprised of Cat Hunter and Mark Harding, made their way to Hudson in upstate New York and began recording their debut album with Aaron at Future Past Studios, a converted nineteenth-century church in Hudson, New York.
“It was a dream of ours to work with Aaron Dessner. We are so incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to make this album with him, and Jonathan Lowe, who engineered and mixed the album. Aaron captured the heart of what we are about, and we couldn’t be more thankful,” Little May say about the experience.
Having just returned home from playing shows in the US with Mumford & Sons, Alabama Shakes and The Flaming Lips on the Gentlemen of the Road tour, as well as performances at Bonnaroo Festival.
