Lanu's second single from his acclaimed second solo album 'Her 12 Faces', 'Fall', features successful Australian singer Megan Washington and will be released on August 15th on Tru Thoughts Records. The song was Amazon UK's Track of the Day and was available as a free download from July 4th (2011).
The video was directed and animated by Lucy Dyson and Joseph Jensen. It follows on from Lanu's last single, 'Beautiful Trash' and shows a couple going through a rough patch in their relationship. The animated style of the video suits the haunting nature of the song.
Lanu, born Lance Ferguson in New Zealand, is best known for being the lead guitarist of Australian funk band The Bamboos, who formed in 2000. His first solo album 'This is My Home' was released in 2007. The debut single from 'Her 12 Faces', 'Beautiful Trash', also featured Megan Washington and was met with acclaim from DJs such as Steve Lamacq and Don Letts of BBC 6Music and John Kennedy of XFM. Megan Washington trained at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music and won two ARIA Awards in 2010, for Best Female Artist and Breakthrough Artist.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
