Ladyhawke’s Acoustic “Wild Things” Video & 2017 Tour Dates: Premiere
Ladyhawke will be taking her fire to the heartland and beyond in 2017, via a North American tour that kicks off February 24th at Nashville’s The High Watt and wraps five weeks later, at San Diego’s The Casbah, on March 31. Today Idolator is premiering the full list of the New Zealand synth-pop musician’s upcoming 21 shows. Included are two dates in Austin during the annual South By Southwest music fest.
Coinciding with the announcement of Ladyhawke’s national tour is the release of a video for an acoustic version of “Wild Things,” the title track off her third album. It’s a visual and musical departure from the roller derby-themed official video for the song, and this stripped-down “Wild Things” visual gives us Ladyhawke taking a more introspective approach by traveling through the desert in a vintage brown Datsun with nothing but a guitar by her side.
“I instantly knew that the song was going to be something about the heart,” Ladyhawke said of “Wild Things” while talking to Idolator in the spring. “The line ‘there’s a fire in the heartland’ — something that burns inside you — was what I wanted the whole album to be about.”
