LANKS announces debut album twentyseven, shares title track

twentyseven will arrive through the recently launched THAA Records on April 27.

At the end of last year, LANKS released My Own Mystery – a woozy, electronic-tinged collaboration with Ngaiire. At the time, he announced that it was the first single from his long-awaited debut album to expect "sometime in 2018", however, details on the album have been spread pretty thin-and-sparse in the time since. Today that changes, with the now-Sydney musician announcing his debut album twentyseven will arrive through the recently launched THAA Records – a new venture with UNIFIED and The Hills Are Alive Festival – on April 27, launching the record with the album's title track.

twentyseven (the single) is a more percussive take on LANKS' indie-electronic mash, bringing together his charming vocals with a howling instrumental that is soaked with thick layers of percussion and piano. It's one of those tracks which highlights his position as a triple-threat (a writer, vocalist and producer) in Australian music, something that'll no doubt continue on his debut album – which is bound to be incredibly personal if early quotes are to go by. "I always had the age of 27 as a milestone in my mind, because many of my heroes had passed away at that age and already achieved a lasting legacy," says LANKS on the album's title and message. "This album is a message to myself of humility as I confronted that fear of failure (that was excessive and unhealthy), challenged my own idea of success and questioned what sort of person I aspired to be."
