Truth & Soul Album Out Now

Stan Walker’s new album Truth & Soul is out now!

Truth & Soul is Stan’s reinterpretation of some of the biggest soul songs ever written – songs that have inspired him throughout his career and made him the artist we see today. It’s a roll call of soul giants: Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Bob Marley, Maxwell, and Lionel Richie.

Throughout the album, Stan’s vocal ability is impressively on display and you can hear a deep respect for each song with effortless falsetto and unveiled emotion.

Truth & Soul is available on iTunes and Google Play, as well as at JB Hi-Fi and Sanity.

Stan Cast In ‘Born To Dance’ Film

Stan Walker has been announced as the first lead casting of the multi-million dollar international hip-hop film ‘Born To Dance’ set to shoot in New Zealand this October.

Stan is no stranger to international screens, having played the title role 
in the 2013 hit feature ‘Mt Zion’ and was a judge on the hi TV show X Factor (New Zealand)

Stan is thrilled to have the opportunity to play the role of ‘Benjy’, one of the protagonist Tu’s close-knit group of friends from Papakura, in the film.

“I am very excited to be a part of the very first major dance film to come out of NZ” said Stan. “NZ is one of the biggest hip-hop dance nations and it will be awesome to get our story and our dancers showcased to an international audience." 

‘Born to Dance’ is a coming of age tale told through the eyes of ‘Tu’, an ambitious young man from Auckland, who dreams of being a professional hip-hop dancer. It will be choreographed by NZ’s own international dance superstar Parris Goebel, while Tammy Davis will direct, following from his award winning short films ‘Ebony Society’ and ‘My Older Brother.’

Casting is still under-way for the supporting cast and other leads are due to be announced in the coming months. An international Hollywood starlet is tipped to play the lead female role.

From today, up and coming dancers are able to enter online to win a walk-on part in the film via NZ radio stations Flava and ZM. To be into win, dancers are encouraged to head to the Flava website or ZM website and upload a video of their best dance routine.

To find out more about ‘Born To Dance’, check out the film’s official Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Stan Walker will well and truly hit the road this year, taking on an extensive national tour that will see him travel from Whangarei to Invercargill, playing 23 shows across the country through September and October.

Stan Walker’s World Tour of New Zealand may well be the longest anyone has attempted in recent New Zealand Music history, and there are some compelling reasons as to why Stan is just the man to do it.

One of the country’s most popular artists, Stan has sold over 170,000 singles and close to 100,000 albums to date, collecting 5 New Zealand Music Awards along the way.

Stan made his acting debut in February this year, playing the lead role of Turei in the feature film Mt Zion. Mt Zion debuted at #1 at the NZ box office, quickly taking over $1 million, and securing a successful Australian release. Mt Zion also won the NZ Box Office Achievement Award for Highest Grossing New Zealand Film for 2013 and the Flicks People’s Choice Award for Movie of the Year. Take It Easy, Stan’s single from the film, also held a number one New Zealand chart position and gained platinum sales.

From there, Stan moved to his role as a judge on the debut series of The X Factor New Zealand, where he is currently gracing primetime TV screens in the high-rating show.

Stan has also recently released The Complete Collection – a limited edition package combining all three of his albums with a bonus Take It Easy single – and will release a new track Bulletproof on May 31.

Commenting on his upcoming tour, Stan says ‘New Zealand – if you’ve got some people and a hall with power, I’m coming to you! It’s going to be heaps of fun and I promise you’ll get a great show. I can’t wait’
