Sheppard are back with all the colors of the musical rainbow on Kaleidoscope Eyes, their third album.
The shiny pop-rock outfit out of Brisbane, Australia dropped the new album at the stroke of midnight. Spanning 16 tracks, Kaleidoscope Eyes includes lead single “Die Young,” which bowed at No. 3 on AIR’s Independent Singles chart back in 2019.
Led by the sibling duo of George, Amy and Emma Sheppard, Kaleidoscope Eyes is the followup to Watching the Sky, which debuted at No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart in 2018, and their 2014 debut Bombs Away, which peaked at No. 31 on the Billboard 200 and No. 2 in their homeland. Bombs Away featured “Geronimo,” the highest-selling single in Australia by a homegrown artist that year.
Kaleidoscope Eyes is “dedicated to the wonders of love, in every form. With love, the world is a more colorful place,” says George of the new album, two years in the making. “Spread it, make it, give it, feel it, appreciate it, and do your best not to lose it.”
Sheppard warmed up for the new release with a global streaming concert from Brisbane’s Fortitude Music Hall, and they nabbed the coveted halftime entertainment slot at the 2020 AFL Grand Final.
