Background and recording[edit]

Mayhem & Miracles was recorded and mixed at The Vault in Hollywood, California and is heavily influenced by Polynesian music.[1][2] The cover art was designed by Elliot Francis Stewart.[3]

Release and promotion[edit]

Mayhem & Miracles was released worldwide as a digital download and compact disc by Dawn Raid Music on 29 June 2012.[4][5] "Twerk" was released as a single on 4 May 2012.[6] Savage embarked on the Mayhem & Miracles Twerk Tour around New Zealand in October 2012.[7]

Reception[edit]

Alistar Wickens of NZ Musician wrote that the album is more mature and deep than Savage's previous work, and less hook-rich.[8] Mayhem & Miracles appeared at number twenty-five on the New Zealand Albums Chart dated 9 July 2012, and fell off the chart the next week.[9] It was nominated for Best Urban/Hip Hop Album at the 2012 New Zealand Music Awards, but lost to Home Brew's self-titled debut album.[10]
