Marlon Williams Releases ‘Live at Auckland Town Hall’ + Live Video for “Carried Away”

Posted on 02/01/2019

Today, New Zealand’s Marlon Williams releases Live at Auckland Town Hall in its digital form, with a physical release to come May 24th via Dead Oceans. This marks Williams’ first official live album and the follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2018 sophomore LP, Make Way for Love. Williams also shares a live video for “Carried Away,” filmed during one of the sold-out nights at Auckland Town Hall.

Williams spent the bulk of 2018 touring across the world in support of Make Way for Love, sharing the stage with his second family, The Yarra Benders. Last year also saw Williams’ silver screen debut with a small role and performance in Bradley Cooper’s Oscar-nominated A Star is Born. Finally, after the whirlwind, Williams returned home to New Zealand, performing two sold-out nights at the Auckland Town Hall as a fitting cap to the world tour.

Across the past several years on the road, the Marlon Williams live show has taken on an almost mystical status — not just for Williams’ extraordinary voice, but also for the hypnotic command he has over an audience, his seamless blending of genres, and the effortless, instinctive relationship he shares with his band.

Live at Auckland Town Hall captures an artist both early enough in his career to be humbled by the occasion, and developed enough to present a stunning catalogue of music and quality of performance. Live at Auckland Town Hall feels sure to enter the canon of great live albums in the years to come, a dazzling snapshot of Marlon Williams’ musical singularity.

Marlon Williams is currently touring across Australia and New Zealand before he returns to the studio and working on further film projects. Williams recently wrapped up a stadium tour with Florence + the Machine; the two performed Williams’ “Nobody Gets What They Want Anymore” as a duet in Sydney earlier last week, with the Machine learning the song specifically for the occasion. Watch the performance below.
