Eskimo Joe Prep ‘A Song Is A City’ Reissue

Eskimo Joe’s second album ‘A Song Is A City’ is their next release to be given a make-over.

‘A Song Is A City’ was released in 2004. It reached no 2 in Australia and achieved Double Platinum status.

Kav Temperley said, “At [the] time we were in label limbo and had the realisation that we’d have to take a risk and use whatever money we had earned so far to record our second album. Enter our fantastic Jam room on Baker Street behind a pub in Fremantle, also where we lived. Every Wednesday we would wander down to the Newport Hotel in Fremantle for student night (none of us were actually students), drink $2 beers and then stumble back to Baker St to start jamming. At the time we were obsessed with bands like Wilco, PJ Harvey 4 track demo’s and Neil Young. You can hear a lot of those flavours in songs like ‘From the Sea’, ‘Life is Better with You’ and ‘Older than You’. We wrote so many songs……around two albums worth during this period and this meant we could cherry pick the best moments to put on ASIAC.”

The four singles from ‘A Song Is A City’ were:

From The Sea


Older Than You

Life Is Better With You

Kav says “All these stories are real for me, but over a decade later I now know that these stories aren’t just about us any more, they are for everyone who has listened to this record, taken it into their lives, and made it their own personal soundtrack. That makes us all in Eskimo Joe feel very proud, grateful and thankful for how this whole period of time ended up.”

Eskimo Joe ‘A Song Is A City’ will be released on 29 May, 2020.
