Bays is the fourth studio album by New Zealand reggae band Fat Freddy's Drop, released in October 2015 via The Drop.

Following the worldwide success of Blackbird album released in 2013, Freddy's is back with new album Bays.

The predominantly studio written album draws on the lexicon of genres that have come to epitomize Freddys sound.

Opening with the slow burn funk of Wairunga Blues the album journeys through a hybrid of reggae, jazz with techno rhythms underpinning Freddy’s signature horns and Joe Dukie’s soulful and introspective vocal, arriving finally on the crooked blues jam of Novak.

Recorded at Freddys BAYS Studio in Kilbirnie, Wellington a former 1950s HMV vinyl pressing plant, the new album exudes a confidence of a band truly comfortable in their skin.

“It’s been a more creative process writing this album in the studio rather than recording songs which have been well road-tested”, Freddy’s vocalist Joe Dukie said.

This album again reached #1 on the New Zealand Albums charts and also #12 on the Australian ARIA Albums charts.

Check out a couple of tracks from the album:  Wairunga Blues, 10 Feet Tall, Razor, Makkan and Novak.

This is a Double Album 2LP Record set on 180 Gram Vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve, pressed in New Zealand.
