Mac DeMarco has been all over musical news recently – and for good reason. Today, we’ve got an Eric Clapton cover, a new LP AND the exciting news that he’s returning to Australia for the third time in two years, for a slot at the Falls Music and Arts Festival over New Years.
Steeping out of his comfort genre and into a classic, this week sees the release of a pretty dazzling cover of Eric Clapton’s Change The World.
In case you missed him earlier this year while he was in town for St Jerome’s Laneway Festival (read our Sydney or Brisbane reviews here,) you’ll be able to catch DeMarco across the new years festival. Taking place in Byron Bay, Marion Bay and Lorne, he’ll be joined at Falls by stellar international acts like Foals, Disclosure and Bloc Party. Check out the full lineup and ticket details right here.
We reported back in April that DeMarco was also slated to release a new LP later this year – and finally, that day has arrived. Titled Another One, the eight-track release is a kind of journey through his twisted and forlorn interpretation of love and romance, and features The Way You’d Love Her and new single I’ve Been Waiting For Her. The release was written and self-recorded in between his busy touring schedule, at the Queens, New York home where he has recently invited fans to come over for a pot of coffee.
