The Hilltop Hoods have just dropped their latest album, a combined remix of their 2012 release Drinking From The Sun as well as their 2014 release, Walking Under Stars. This is their second “re-strung” album, when in 2007 they released The Hard Road Restrung in what was groundbreaking work for Australian Hip Hop music. Undoubtedly this album doesn’t disappoint and will continue their record breaking, award winning ride at the top.
Their album The Hard Road Restrung which received the award for Best Urban Release at the ARIA Awards in 2008, was speculated by those-not-in-the-know to have been a method of getting out of their record deal at the time, but it’s no surprise to see them rework their last two albums in the same manner after its unprecedented success. Already released is 2 brand new songs off the album including Higher featuring James Chatburn, and 1955 Featuring Montaigne & Tom Thum, but a new album with fresh raps looks to be a long way off, with the fella’s busy on tour over the upcoming months.
