Iconic songwriter and musician Don McGlashan doesnt need much introduction. One of New Zealands best known and highly regarded songwriters, McGlashan has penned many a song that more than a few New Zealanders would consider for the soundtrack of their lives. With a penchant for reflecting on social events within his songs, the political is personal in the world of Don McGlashan; his songs pull strings in the most callous of hearts.

And lucky for us, Dons been writing songs towards a new record,Lucky Stars, to be revealed this week (ahead of a general release in April) with the commencement of the 2015 Winery Tour. Lucky Stars will also be available for purchase on CD exclusively throughout the tour, and online via Flying Out (with free shipping in New Zealand) for those who can't make it to a show or wish to grab a copy later.

Written mostly in a windswept bach on the Thames Estuary south of Auckland, Don had ideas of stillness and isolation in mind for the new album.I thought it was going to be a solitary, quiet record, Don says, I wanted to hibernate. However, the music got the better of Don. Some of the songs that came out had their own ideas, they were much more positive and sociable. The album was eventually recorded with a team of New Zealands finest musicians, working between Aucklands Roundhead studio and more remote seaside locations. Judging by his career up to this point, Lucky Stars will be another stellar recorded work from Mr. McGlashan.
