Release Date: Friday 10 August 2018
Composer and performer Dudley Benson's long-awaited third album Zealandia is a love record to a drowned continent. An album that explores our identity through twelve meticulously arranged pop songs, Benson's most accomplished work yet was eight years in the making, and features the Dunedin Symphony Orchestra, New Zealand Youth Choir, and beats made with geologists from GNS Science.
Zealandia follows Benson's Taite Prize nominated Forest (2010), and breakthrough chamber pop debut The Awakening (2008).
