Fat Freddy’s Drop ‘Special Edition’

Written by on November 25, 2019

This week’s Local Eyes is for Fat Freddy’s Drop‘s summer anthem ‘Special Edition‘ taken from their new album ‘Special Edition Part 1‘.

The ‘Special Edition’ music video features the return of Fat Freddys Drop marionette band vs Baby Dorge & a furry puppet posse grooving to the new single.

The video is directed by Mark Williams aka M.C. Slave of Fat Freddy’s Drop and has said: “The Special Edition video is a collaboration with puppet master Jon Coddington. We first worked together with Jon on the 2013 Freddy’s ‘Clean the House’ video. Jon made the marionettes especially for that”.


Plus they will be hitting the road with The NZ Summer Record Tour 2020! Destination include Thames, Kerikeri, Mangawhai, Tauranga, Auckland, Wellington, Havelock North, Christchurch and Queenstown.
