Another Universe 2003

Another Universe, Arno's debut solo album, was released in 2003 and as one of the most anticipated solo projects in South African music history, did not disappoint, becoming the biggest selling South African English rock album this side of the millennium The platinum selling album won a SAMA Award for Best Rock Album in 2004

The Hello Goodbye Boys 2005

Arno's 2nd solo album, The Hello Goodbye Boys, was released in 2005 Produced by well-known South African studio maestro Brian O'Shea producer for the internationally recognised group Seether, The Hello Goodbye Boys went gold and won a SAMA award in 2006

Wonderful Wild 2010

In the Spring of 2010, Arno released Wonderful Wild, his 3rd solo album The album was produced by legendary British producer Youth The Verve's Bittersweet Symphony and Jim Duguid Paolo Nutini's These Streets It was written, recorded and mixed in London & Spain with co-songwriting contributions from Giles Martin, James Walsh, Jim Duguid and Youth Final mix on the album is by Tim Bran

The first single "Dreamer", taken from Wonderful Wild, was released in February 2010

Atari Gala 2012

2012 marked the release of Arno Carstens' 4th solo album titled Atari Gala, written in part in New York, London, Johannesburg and Cape Town and produced by Arno and Brendan Jury

The title Atari Gala is a Japanese translation that implies a warning cry or celebration

“I painted the Japanese word "Atari" on a recent artwork to mimic a bird singing a message of warning That got me thinking that it could be a great name for a piece of music Because this is my 10th studio album, I wanted to emphasise a kind of celebration, not only of the 12 tracks on this particular album, but of the whole creative process that has brought me thus far Every song is an event or a tale, a celebration or a warning cry, that stems from life's experiences" says Carstens

Lightning Prevails 2014

Lightning Prevails, Arno's 5th solo album, was released in 2014 Arno started working with the SAMA winner Dan Roberts in June 2013, on a project to record a greatest hits album The intention was to re-write and record acoustically driven, orchestral versions of some of Arno's most popular career tracks, both as a solo artist and as the frontman for SNG Two months later, they emerged from studio with something completely different

Lighting Prevails boasts a seductive departure from the comfortable and familiar Arno Carstens sound There are the same thought provoking, profound lyrics and melodies that soak into the skin, but this time the marriage of organic sound and electronic beats are made lusher, with a big brass section, the powerful backing vocals of Jamali's Mariechan and the artistry of producer, Dan Roberts

It's an album that celebrates the unstoppable power of love and creation
