Adored Australian duo Angus & Julia Stone unveil their new single ‘No Boat No Aeroplane,’ the fourth offering from their forthcoming sixth studio album Cape Forestier, due for release via Play It Again Sam next week, 10th May. The album is available to pre-order/save HERE. Listen to ‘No Boat No Aeroplane’ HERE.

Written by Angus at the tender age of 16, the duo revisited and revitalised the song together. The single retains the raw beauty of his youthful perspective, now imbued with the wisdom and insight garnered from his extensive travels and life experience, alongside his career and understandings as an artist. It follows previous singles taken from Cape Forestier including the poignantly beautiful ‘The Wedding Song’, the album’s title track ‘Cape Forestier’, and album opener ‘Losing You’.

Speaking on the new single, they say “This song encapsulates those moments in life when it feels like all semblance of stability has vanished, and what we once thought we comprehended has slipped away. The song is about the spirit of resilience and curiosity required in times like that… You have nowhere to go and are full of doubt… but you must head towards the storm; if you turn away, you’ll never truly understand it. It speaks to the notion that confronting challenges head-on, even if it means grappling with tumultuous currents, can lead to a deeper comprehension of the unpredictable nature of the world. ‘My ride is with the wind’.”

Cape Forestier plays like a storybook from the hearts and minds of Angus & Julia Stone, with each song revealing itself as a different page. Reminiscent of their earlier records, the songs move from love stories like ‘My Little Anchor’ or the soaring ‘Somehow,’ a burning tale of unrequited love, to the likes of ‘Down to The Sea’ that explore a unique view of society and what goes on around us. Together, the tracks on Cape Forestier are strikingly poignant and textured recordings that immediately draw listeners into the simple and endearing vision of Angus and Julia Stone’s world.

Alongside their new album, Angus & Julia Stone are also embarking on a 2024 World Tour, featuring two dates in the UK, including a show at London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall on 28th May. Tickets are available HERE. For more information please visit Please see the full list of tour dates below.
