Empire of the Sun’s Luke Steele and Nick Littlemore visited KROQ’s Kevin & Bean Show today (Aug 23) to world premiere their new song “High and Low” from their forthcoming album, Two Vines. Co-produced by Peter Mayes, the album features contributions by Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham, Wendy Melvoin, and Bowie collaborators Henry Hey and Tim Lefebvre.
“It was about this girl I knew when I was a kid called Alice D who was kind of a wild child. She did all kinds of crazy things,” Littlemore says of the new song. “There’s an Australian film called ‘The Year My Voice Broke,’ I don’t know if you’re familiar with it, but there’s a girl in that that kind of lives a mysterious life. We wanted to write a song that captured the innocence and bravery of youth, and being a teenager, and having these kind of experiences where you throw caution to the wind and you try things for the first time.”
The song is scheduled to hit iTunes this evening.
