Stan Walker releases new album 'All In'
August 19, 2022 (Aotearoa New Zealand) – Cultural icon and celebrated Māori artist Stan Walker today releases his seventh studio album ‘All In’ with his long-time label Sony Music New Zealand.
The award-winning performer launches this special body of work surrounded by friends and whānau performing an exclusive live set with 9-piece band, available to watch by livestream with Whakaata Māori tonight from 7:45pm NZDT with thanks to Spark and Spotify.
Teaming up with one of Aotearoa New Zealand’s greatest MC’s JessB, Stan shares a new single today from the new album. Listen to the new single ‘The One You Want (60s Song)’ out now.
‘All In’ is the star’s seventh studio album, marking his artistic journey coming full circle. This is Stan Walker in full glory through equal parts trademark anthems (‘Don’t Worry Baby’ feat. Celina Sharma, ‘Come Back Home’) and R&B inflected bangers paying homage to the music he was raised on (‘Human’ feat. Vince Harder & Louis Baker). ‘All In’ is a representation of refinement, following a career that spans over a decade.
Co-produced by Stan, Sons of Zion’s Matt Sadgrove and Devin Abrams (Shapeshifter, Pacific Heights), the sessions for ‘All In’ took place out of Roundhead Studio and was mixed by prolific engineer Simon Gooding (P!nk, Ed Sheeran, Dua Lipa). To bring the music to life, Stan wrangled a star-studded lineup of musical guests including the one and only Jojo, Aotearoa music legend Scribe, genre-bending rap artist JessB and more.
