Release Date: Friday 16 November 2018
Brooke Fraser follows last year's A Sides collection with a deeper delve into her catalogue to release B Sides. An album of b-sides and rarities, covers, live and previously unreleased demos. These tracks plot a fascinating path from bedroom writing sessions to full blown productions.
Brooke selected her favourites from a trawl through her archives and these songs combine to give a fresh insight into the artistry that marks her remarkable career. Stretching back to a version of Joni Mitchell's 'Woodstock' recorded in Auckland in 2004, to the triumphant live recordings from the climax of the Albertine tour before diving into a group of tracks recorded as demos for the follow-up, 'Flags'.
A number of songs come from a period Brooke spent living and writing in Sweden in a nomadic time of her life that preceded the recording of Brutal Romantic.
