'The Sparrow' is Lawrence Arabia AKA James Milne's third solo album, the evocative follow up to the Taite Music Prize/Silver Scroll winning 'Chant Darling'.
Venturing away from the harmony-laden, classic pop production of 'Chant Darling', 'The Sparrow' is a more measured and minimalist work, drawing particularly on the influence from the symphonic late-sixties work of Scott Walker and Serge Gainsbourg.
Produced and mixed by Lawrence Arabia, the album features Connan Mockasin, Elroy Finn, Andrew Keoghan, Hayden Eastmond-Mein, Tom Watson, Mahuia Bridgman-Cooper, Rachel Wells, Toby Laing and Daniel Yeabsley.
Winner of the Best Male Solo Artist Tui at the 2013 NZ Music Awards.
