Following the announcement that Fire Records are partnering up with New Zealand sonic luminaries The Chills and their label Far South, with the revelation of a brand new Chills track 'Molten Gold', they are now delighted to announce their first physical release together, which is a collaboration between The Chills and acclaimed contemporary artist Shane Cotton.
Somewhere Beautiful (due out 14 October - Europe/15 October - US) is triple LP set of live recordings from a private party on New Year's Eve 2011, featuring some of the most beloved Chills tracks of all time including "Pink Frost", "Heavenly Pop Hit" and many more.
The triple LP set will be released with lavish packaging and including a 12"/30cm square print of Cotton's artwork. There will also be a limited edition 200g, vinyl which includes the triple-gatefold album, plus two Shane Cotton signed art prints and the album signed by Chills frontman Martin Phillips. Somewhere Beautiful will also be available digitally and on CD.
The collaboration between The Chills and Shane Cotton came about via Conceptio Art and David Telpitzky, who brought the two artists together. Shane painted the diptych "Rolling Moon" as a response to the live performance featured on this record.
