Fly My Pretties fifth album, The Homeland Recordings, is out today and to celebrate Stuff.co.nz is hosting an exclusive stream of the album in its entirety.

Made up of the best live takes of songs performed on the collective's 23-date Homeland tour, the album captures the intimate, emotive performances that 13,000 fans witnessed throughout the country.

The result is something truly special: 13 tracks, captured live, which herald a welcome return to Fly My Pretties' musical roots: an unashamedly kiwi sound steeped in folk, roots, soul and rock.

A band with an ever-changing line-up led by Barnaby Weir (The Black Seeds), The Homeland cast saw perhaps the most exciting mix of musicians assembled to date including: Anika Moa, Mel Parsons, Ria Hall, Kara Gordon, Louis McDonald (Five Mile Town), Mark Vanilau, Ryan Prebble (The Nudge), Shaun Blackwell (John The Baptist) & members of The Black Seeds: Jarney Murphy, Mike Fabulous, Nigel Patterson and of course, Barnaby Weir.

Fly My Pretties - The Homeland Recordings available from all good record stores, iTunes and https://flymypretties.bandcamp.com.
