Album cover artwork for Dope LemoSummer love. It’s like no other love. Looking for the soundtrack to your summer? Look no further than Rose Pink Cadillac, the third album for Dope Lemon (AKA Angus Stone).

As he sings in the aptly titled Every Day Is A Holiday: “I wanna be the one who brings us to the sun.”

This cruisy collection is filled with smooth grooves, perfect for long summer days lounging by the pool, drifting and daydreaming. Well… that’s the “daytime” disc, which is one half of the stunning picture disc. The second LP is darker, and delves into the nighttime. “Life’s a long-ass journey,” Stone notes in the title track, “with some fool that wrote the map.” But this is a terrific, trance-like trip to those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer. The music meanders and mesmerises. Love is the drug.

Rose Pink Cadillac by Dope Lemon is out Jan 7 via BMG.
