BackgroundEdit

Prior to the release of the album, Hilltop Hoods referred to Walking Under Stars as a "companion piece" to previous album Drinking from the Sun, with both albums sharing similar themes, artwork and connected via a five-part narrative, entitled 'The Thirst', commencing with the opening track on Drinking from the Sun, "The Thirst Pt. 1" and concluding with "The Thirst Pt. 5" at the end of Walking Under Stars.[3]

The first single, "Won't Let You Down", premiered on Triple J on 24 June 2014 and was officially released on 27 June.[4] The album was released on 8 August 2014 and debuted at number one on the ARIA Charts, making it Hilltop Hood's fourth consecutive number one album.[5] The album was certified gold (denoting over 35,000 sales) in Australia, shortly after release.
