After spending 2017 on the West Coast of America driving around a 30ft RV, exploring and writing
new music - Drapht is back and fully equiped with something extremely special for your 2018
listening pleasure. The solo artist from Perth Western Australia is no stranger to the Australian music
industry, carrying a platinum album, multi platinum and gold singles, ARIA #1 Album and two ARIA
awards for his last two full length releases THE LIFE OF RILEY and SEVEN MIRRORS.
It's now May 25th 2018, we find a surprise announcement and the first instalment from Drapht 's
sixth full length studio album ARABELLA STREET ( via Ayems / Sony Music Entertainment Australia).
The first taste of ARABELLA STREET was announced yesterday to a loyal and unsuspecting fan base
via the man himself across his social media platforms. It stars lead single 'The Come Down Was Real'
a signature Drapht uptempo banger featuring Perth native Indoor Fins, and is a welcomed return for
one of Australia's most celebrated pioneers of the genre.
Drapht explains - "I decided I wanted tackle the release of this album a little differently this time
around. I really had to attempt to take the pressure away from releasing individual songs and sole
singles that didn't quite represent the albums entirety and in the past tended to be extremely
stressful. So I wanted to release the album in sections of multiple songs at a time instead; That way
giving people more of a taste of things to come; that will then lead to the full body of work later in
'The Come Down Was Real' premiered on triple j 's Breakfast Show yesterday, followed by the
albums announcement and a 5 date intimate showcase tour across the country early August.
