Vinyl LP pressing. 2016 release, the third album from the eclectic electronic duo. Two Vines was recorded in Hawaii and Los Angeles, and it was co-produced by Empire of the Sun and Peter Mayes (Sia, the Killers, Mika). It features contributions from Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham, Wendy Melvoin (from Prince's band the Revolution), and pianist Henry Hey and bassist Tim Lefebvre, both members of David Bowie's Blackstar band. Nick Littlemore: There was an image we talked about very early on with this record, before we wrote the title track, 'Two Vines,' and that was this image of a modern city overtaken by jungle, almost like mother nature taking back the planet. All the buildings will turn back to sand. All it will be is nature again. We wanted to make something that reflected the beauty of that, and the wisdom that plants can give us about living harmoniously on this beautiful planet.
