Hermitude Announces Worldwide Headline Tour; Listen To “Northern Lights (feat. Soaky Siren & Vory)”
June 17, 2019 BY Nettwerk
“’Northern Lights’ is part homage to early dance and rave music, which we love, but also mixed with a signature Hermi drop that’s likely to blow a few wigs back! Having Soaky Siren and Vory on the track is the icing on the cake that makes it shine.” – Hermitude
“Northern Lights” is the latest release from Australian duo Hermitude, following “Every Day (feat. Hoodlem),” which landed on 15+ New Music Friday Spotify playlists across the globe, in addition to Top 10 placement on Apple Music’s Electronic chart.
“Northern Lights” is co-written by multi-platinum, Latin Grammy-nominated songwriter Soaky Siren and rapper Vory, who’s known for his Grammy-winning work on The Carters’ Everything Is Love. With the featured artists courting each other in an old school lovers’ duet, the track signifies the Hermitude’s most bright and brash release thus far.
With the track, Hermitude announces their worldwide headline tour (August to December 2019), covering dates across North America, Australia, New Zealand, and Asia. Last month, the duo announced two US festival dates – a headline show at Central Park SummerStage in NYC on June 22 and a performance at Life Is Beautiful festival in Las Vegas on September 21, alongside artists like Chance The Rapper, Post Malone, Janelle Monae and Vampire Weekend. Presale goes live on June 19 and 20, public on sale on June 21. Full dates below.
“Northern Lights feat. Soaky Siren and Vory” is out now through Elefant Traks / Nettwerk.
