The Middle East - I Want That You Are Always Happy

I Want That You Are Always Happy is the debut album from Queensland, Australia based musical collective; The Middle East. The release is the long-anticipated follow-up to their debut EP, Recordings of The Middle East, which earned accolades and fans the world over and led to extensive international touring, shows with Mumford & Sons and Laura Marling, and slots on Coachella, Bonnaroo, Sasquatch!, Glastonbury and Latitude.

In their home country, The Middle East have performed at major Aussie fests including Big Day Out and Splendour In The Grass. The Recordings of The Middle East EP, released in 2008, inspired NME to dub them ''just about the loveliest things we've heard in a fair bit,' while Clash Magazine praised the ''cobweb beauty' of their music, 'which begins in the lullaby vocals and intriguingly weird lyrics.'
