L.A.B release summer banger 'Take It Away'
Friday 09 December 2022
Fresh off another historic year at the New Zealand Music Awards, L.A.B returns with their first new music in over a year. ‘Take It Away’ is the first single from their forthcoming album arriving just in time for the New Zealand summer, and as the band announces their first shows in the USA, UK and EU.
‘Take It Away’ brings together all elements of the L.A.B sound - reggae-inspired groove, soulful guitars, tinges of rock & soaring vocals from frontman Joel Shadbolt. Tracked and recorded live in one take, ‘Take It Away’ captures L.A.B at their best, playing live together and bringing unmatched energy to the recording.
L.A.B close out another massive year with the release of this single, gearing fans up for the release of their much-anticipated new album in early-2023. 2022 saw L.A.B win Best Group, Album of the Year, Single of the Year and Best Roots Artist for the second-straight year at the Aotearoa Music Awards, becoming the first artist to win those awards two years in a row.
They were awarded Best Record at the inaugural Rolling Stone New Zealand Music Awards, and closed out the year by being named with the Top Four most-streamed songs in NZ on Spotify, and three of the Top Four most-streamed songs in NZ on Apple Music.
‘Take It Away’ is set to be a new fan-favourite addition to an ever-growing catalogue.
Off the back of this new single the band will head out for three headline shows at home, before heading abroad for tours in Australia, the USA, Europe & the UK throughout 2023.
