NEW ALBUM "the return" to Release in October
“Jazz & Bossa Nova's pop craftsman Adam Dunning, whose debut album "Sunset Monkeys" was a huge hit in Japan, completes his 3rd masterpiece, 'The Return'. Influences from Chet Baker to Michael Franks, and Caetano Veloso for a sophisticated world of sound.” - El Sur Records, Japan
After the global success of his first two albums, Australia's very own voice of summer is releasing The Return.
Recorded mainly in Rio, this time with legendary Bossa Nova producer Alex Moreira (co-founder of the band Bossacucanova), from the exotica of Istanbul to Australia's beach life, The Return is about time and a return to primal values, and connection to Earth.
Featuring orchestral arrangements from Flavio Mendes alongside Adam's trademark seductive male vocals, and a gallery of world A-list instrumentalists like bassist Guto Wirtti and Alfredo Cardim (Astrid Gilberto), the album showcases some of Dunning’s best compositions.
There are the striking vocals of Australian folk artist Tash Parker on "Holiday" and "Shades", Turkey’s ChanCé for the Istanbul-recorded "Ordinary", and Adam's long-time collaborator, Ronaldo Cotrim for the co-writes "Beautiful Goodbye" and "The Path".
The album launched in Japan through P-Vine Records, and releases worldwide on October 16 October for streaming, download, and mail order.
