Hiatus Kaiyote To Release Second Album Choose Your Weapon

Melbourne based Grammy Award nominated Hiatus Kaiyote will expand their 2014 ‘By Fire’ EP into their second album ‘Choose Your Weapon’ in May.

Hiatus Kaiyote rose to international attention to earn a Grammy nomination for Best R&B Performance for their song Nakamarra” in 2014. They released their debut album ‘Tawk Tomahawk’ in 2013.

The band has received great support from other artists. “Everyone who has come in contact with our music has promoted it,” says singer Nai Palm. “Questlove, Erykah Badu, Pharrell and Prince have gone out of their way to plug the band. There’s been so much support from the community of musicians locally and internationally. As a musician, that’s what it’s about.”

2014’s ‘By Fire’ EP gave fans a taste of three of the 18 tracks from ‘Choose Your Weapon’. “By Fire is a burial song,” Nai Palm says. “It discusses the creative and destructive forces of fire and uses this element as a reference point to express about my father passing away in a house fire. It also ties in with a story about a silver Navajo arrowhead I was given by a mystic.”

The new album will feature 70 minutes of music across its 18 titles.
