Out this week, 13 June 2011, is the SPECIAL EDITION of one Farryl Purkiss’ most successful albums to date, “Fruitbats & Crows”. Since the release of “Fruitbats & Crows”, the album has generated three major radio hit singles with “A Million Grains Of Sand”, “Kissing Devils On The Cheek” and “Creeping Up On Me” doing incredibly well on South African radio and Brian O’Shea won the 2010 SAMA for “Best Producer” for his work on “Fruitbats & Crows”.
2011 also brought a great start to the year for Farryl Purkiss after the single ‘Pennies In the Snow’ aired on major US TV Series Private Practice on International TV Screens in January. “Pennies In The Snow” was heard on episode 11 of Season 4 of Private Practice, which still has to air on SOUTH AFRICAN TV.
What makes the SPECIAL EDITION release so, err… Special, is that the tracks on the Bonus Disc are special versions and new songs that have NEVER been available before.
“IN APOSTROPHES” is an acoustic version of a brand new song for the next Studio album, “MONKEYS’ WEDDING LIVE” has become a fan favourite request at LIVE shows and differs vastly from the Album version of “Monkeys’ Wedding”. The PIANO MIX of “Sticks & Stones” was the version used on PRIVATE PRACTICE’s fifth episode of season three and is finally available to fans who’ve been wanting it since it featured on the series. “Number Seven” never made the final tracklisting when “Fruitbats & Crows” was released and is now available on this BONUS DISC as the only Instrumenta; Song on the album, and the release also includes Farryl’s stunning versions of the BOB DYLAN track “Positively 4th Street” and the classic NEW ORDER single “Blue Monday”!
