Australia's multi-ARIA award-winning, multi-platinum selling superstar Kasey Chambers
will release her 4th Warner Bros. Records album "Carnival" on September 12, 2006. The follow-up to 2004's award-winning "Wayward Angel
," "Carnival" contains a dozen Chambers originals including the Aussie #1 hit, "Nothing At All."
"Carnival" was recorded in Australia in just over a week and produced, as always, by her brother Nash Chambers. Several of Kasey's friends contributed to the sessions including Tim Rogers of You Am I
, Bernard Fanning of Powderfinger
, Jim Moginie of Midnight Oil
, and Michael Barker of John Butler Trio
; all formidable stars in their own right in their native Australia.
Immediately, you'll notice a different overall fresh feel to this album. Maybe a bit less twang, perhaps a bit more contemporary, but still full of all the warmth, wisdom, and trademark qualities that makes Kasey Chambers Australia's most loved and respected artist. The title alone represents everything life has to offer: mystery, exploration, innocence, love and loss, but always with a dose of optimism. These songs are universal stories that Kasey will share this summer as she tours the world with her band. Only four U.S. shows are scheduled for this September, but KC and company will return for a full stateside tour in early 2007.
"I'm very excited to announce the dates for my 'Carnival Tour' -- it's been two years since we've toured so we're really ready to go. So excited in fact, that I've already written out the set list and the first gig isn't for a couple months. I'm particularly looking forward to playing a bunch of new songs from the new album as well as some really old ones that I haven't played for a very long time. I can't wait," said Kasey.
