Aldous Harding Shares "Old Peel" Video, Announces 2022 Tour

Aldous Harding is back with her first new original music since her 2019 album Designer, live favorite “Old Peel,” out now along with a music video and an acoustic alternate version. The New Zealand folk singer/songwriter has also announced an extensive tour set for the spring and summer of 2022.

Harding has been known to close shows with “Old Peel,” a staccato rock track driven by piano stabs and sly guitars, and with the artist’s signature unknowable whimsy. She recorded the one-off single after her 2019 European tour with producer John Parish, who also worked on her last two albums, 2019’s Designer and 2017’s Party. Harding co-stars in and -directs the “Old Peel” video alongside another frequent collaborator, Martin Sagadin, who appears front and center performing the song.

The song’s acoustic alternate version is, of course, stripped down to its bare bones, but maintains its buoyant rhythm and allows more space for Harding’s vocals to shine. Both “Old Peel” and “Old Peel (Alternate Version)” will be released as a limited-edition 7” single on July 9.

Until “Old Peel,” Harding’s sole 2021 release was her contribution to 4AD’s Bills & Aches & Blues covers compilation: a rendition of Deerhunter’s “Revival.”

Harding’s sprawling 2022 tour spends March in Europe and the first half of April in the U.K, taking May off before crisscrossing North America through June and a tiny bit of July. Tickets for all shows go on sale this Friday, June 18, at 10 a.m. ET in North America and 10 a.m. BT in the U.K. and Europe.
