First-ever solo tour
You may know him as one half of New Zealand's fourth best novelty song duo, Flight of the Conchords, or as the Oscar-winning composer behind The Muppets' 2011 comeback movie, but either way, you've never seen him like this. Putting comedy to one side, Bret McKenzie is gracing stages across the world on his first-ever solo tour, in support of his new, non-comedy album, the directly named 'Songs Without Jokes'.
Speaking on this new venture, McKenzie said "Post-Conchords, I'd been working on songs for the Muppets films, and during a session, I had the thought that it would be fun someday to work on some songs that weren't for someone else, that doesn't have to tell a story or be funny or continue the narrative plot, checking all the boxes for the character in the movie," "I thought it'd be fun to do a record like that, something different." With lead single 'A Little Tune' displaying his versatility, we're sure this is the start of something big for the New Zealand native.
