Audio: Stream Hilltop Hoods 'Walking Under Stars' & Tour Dates

Matt: The Hilltop Hoods released their brand new album Walking Under Stars through Golden Era Records/Fontana on 8-12-2014. The album is the highly anticipated follow up to 2012’s double platinum ARIA award winning album Drinking from the Sun.

The band has managed to once again push the envelope for Australian hip hop with the incendiary Walking Under Stars, a release that promises to be unlike anything fans have heard before. "Walking Under Stars is like a progressive and soulful big brother to Drinking From the Sun” says MC Pressure and MC Suffa states "With Walking Under Stars we took our time and worked as hard as we could to craft an album that we could be truly proud of.”

Walking Under Stars boasts twelve-tracks and features guest appearances from the legendary Brother Ali, New Zealand soul songstress Aaradhna, UK’s rising soul star Maverick Sabre, ARIA Award winning soul rocker Dan Sultan and fellow Best Urban ARIA winner Drapht.

In support of this highly anticipated release and with the help of Red Bull, Hilltop Hoods are embarking upon their most extensive tour of the US & Canada to date to support the release of their brand new album Walking Under Stars, 2014 will undoubtedly be another year full of milestones for Australia’s greatest hip hop act Hilltop Hoods.

Audio: MerCure Dior - "Sleeping In Italy"

A.T.: Following his three-song, self-titled, EP which was released last week, Italy-born rapper/singer/producer MerCure Dior shares "Sleeping In Italy." Currently living in Greenbelt, Maryland, the idea for the loose single came about when he found out he would be visiting his birthplace for the first time since leaving at 4-years-old. "Coming back to my birth place after 15 years has allowed me to see the world from a different light and reconnect with Italian culture," says MerCure who is spending the summer in Torino, the Italian city where he was born. "Sleeping In Italy" carries atmospheric elements accompanied by smooth, hard-hitting drums which complement MerCure's mellow lyrics.
