New Zealand's new female supergroup has released a video to their first single Be Mine and Stuff is excited to premiere it today.

Being all iconic singers and songwriters in their own right, Anika Moa, Boh Runga and Hollie Smith have decided to throw their talents together.

The project came about when one of the three friends suggested it over a bottle of wine one day, pondering what might come of it.  

And unsurprisingly the songs kept flowing. Along with the wine and the laughter, the trio remembers. 

After a few of these sessions, they knew what was brewing was worth putting down on tape, to see where the next step might be.

Moa, Runga and Smith spent the last few months writing and recording. Be Mine will feature on the group's debut album due to be released next year.

The trio will also take the show on the road in October in an Acoustic Church Tour, coming to 11 cities and some unexpected venues.

The tour is a show of two halves; the first featuring the three singers acoustically, before being joined by a band for the second half.

They will perform a selection of their back catalogues as well as new material, all specifically arranged for the church venues.

Collectively, Moa, Runga and Smith hold 16 Tui Music Awards and multiple number one singles.

Moa says she is excited about taking to the road.

"Doing what I love everyday is an amazing feeling, now I get to tour with two other brilliant, beautiful and amazing singer-songwriters too.

"I've looked up to Boh since I first became a muso and I've known Hollie a long time and sometimes wish I could have her voice as mine. This is going to be so fun 'cos we're all so zany."
