Today, alt-electro pioneers Empire Of The Sun released "To Her Door," a song they recorded with Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham, who contributed guitar and backing vocals. The track - which is from Empire of the Sun's new album, Two Vines - premiered earlier this week on NPR's "Songs We Love."" To Her Door" can be streamed on Spotify HERE and the animated static video can be viewed HERE.
Empire Of The Sun will perform on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" next Tuesday, October 4. Two Vines will be released on October 28 via Astralwerks. The pre-order is underway HERE. Beginning today, fans who pre-order the digital album will instantly receive "To Her Door" plus "High & Low," "Two Vines" and Manny Marroquin's remix of the band's Platinum hit "Walking On A Dream."
NPR praised Empire Of The Sun's "glistening collaboration with longtime Fleetwood Mac guitarist Lindsey Buckingham...Sonically, 'To Her Door' reflects Fleetwood Mac's warmest records - such as "Hold Me" or "Gypsy," which overflow with richness."
 
"'To Her Door' started with us just improvising in the studio with Lindsey," explainsNicholas Littlemore, who co-pilots Empire Of The Sun alongside Luke Steele. "After the first jam, which was probably about an hour, we turned up his parts and there were so many beautiful gems. You could hear all of the years of playing that he's done withFleetwood Mac coming through. That was quite early on, so that was a big inspiration for us." Buckingham says of the experience, "I loved working with Luke and Nick. Their process was open and collaborative, and their balance of sensibilities between pop and art is beautiful. I was glad to have contributed!"

With Two Vines, the Australian band invites listeners to enter the jungle paradise that marks the third remarkable age of the Empire Of The Sun. The album's first single,"High & Low," offers a glimpse of this dreamlike kingdom. SPIN hailed the track as "exuberant" and Billboard praised it as "a straight-up party tune which flows with melodies, synths and good times." Idolator noted, "The dreamy anthem picks up where debut single/belated 2016 hit 'Walking On A Dream' left off - with hazy synths, multi-layered production and a nod to the past."

Eight ARIA awards (including Album of The Year, Single of the Year and Best Group), 2 BRIT nominations (including Best International Album), and many accolades followed. To date, the band has sold three million copies combined of their albums Walking On A Dream and Ice On The Dune, and reached Multi-Platinum status with global singles "Alive," "We Are The People" and "Walking On A Dream." Empire Of The Sun'slive show has become the highlight of festivals worldwide with its larger-than-life production.SPIN praised the band's Coachella performance as"out of this world." Empire Of The Sunheadlined the historic Hollywood Bowl last fall, performing for sold-out crowd of over 17,000 fans.
