Angus & Julia Stone's Self Titled Album to be Released 8/1
The new and captivating self-titled album from Angus & Julia may have never come to fruition if it wasn't for the legendary record producer Rick Rubin. After hearing an old song of theirs at a party one evening, Rubin felt immediately compelled to track down the Australian duo (who had since gone their separate ways). Shortly thereafter, they received a phone call about Rick's desire to meet and work with them. Weeks later, while both on their solo tours in Los Angeles,they found themselves in a meeting with Rick, whose passion and willingness to get the two of them back together recording in the same room, was too strong to be ignored. Fast-forward to September 2013, and Angus & Julia were together again. Recording at Rubin's prestigious Shangri La Studios in Malibu, the duo created what is without doubt one of the most exciting full-length releases of 2014.
