Dan Sultan will be hitting the road again this November for his ‘Magnetic Tour’, with headline shows in Fremantle, Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney.
The news comes with a teaser to the very first taste of new music from the indigenous Australian singer/songwriter’s highly anticipated fourth LP due for release in 2017. Titled ‘Magnetic’, the teaser alludes to a seemingly new direction for Sultan. ‘Magnetic’ is a fierce attack of soul-pop, as interested in delivering unfiltered emotion as it is a charging chorus.
It’s a clear-headed missive from a man at the top of his game. Not content to ride the coattails of his third record, Blackbird, which took out the award for Best Rock Album at the 2014 ARIA Awards as well as a slew of NIMA and AIR gongs, Sultan took inspiration from the innovative pop landscape to take his honest storytelling into uncharted territory.
Sultan describes his approach to song-writing succinctly: “If there’s fear then you’re onto the right thing.”
“It’s about having too much of a good thing,” Sultan says, explaining the song’s lyrics. “It’s about excess, basically, in all its forms. But it’s also about getting older, and about being more comfortable in my own skin.”
Sultan will hit the road in full band mode to tour ‘Magnetic’ in November, taking in capital cities to give audiences a taste of his new material as well as a selection from his rollicking catalogue. Catch Sultan and his band on the following dates:

A draw between the Rockdogs and the Megahertz at the Reclink Community Cup in Melbourne this year. Proud to have been the captain of the Rockdogs (I swapped jerseys with Maddy Mac in the photo), for such a great cause.
The Reclink Community Cup is an annual charity footy game played annually in all of the major cities between musicians (Rockdogs) and the media (Megahertz or Anchors), all in the name of raising funds and awareness for Reclink Australia, which supports disadvantaged people through Arts and Sports.
Thanks to everyone that came, and made the game so special.
Very humbled to have been nominated for Artist of the Year, Song of the Year and Video of the Year at this year’s NIMAs. Congrats to all the other finalists too! http://www.musicnt.com.au/national-indigenous-music-awards/news/finalists-announced-for-2015-nimas/
I’m in the studio. Making a new album. I’m really excited!
Three-time ARIA award winner DAN SULTAN is back on the road, this time travelling solo around the country supporting the new music platform OpenLIVE and road-testing new material.
The result of this collaboration is the upcoming OpenLIVE tour, which will hit select metropolitan and regional cities across the east coast in November and December. The shows will be a rare opportunity for audiences to see Sultan up-close and personal, performing in an intimate environment.
After carving a reputation as an inimitable musician with a captivating stage presence, the buzz surrounding Dan Sultan has only grown since he won the 2010 ARIA for Best Male Artist, and the 2014 ARIA for Best Rock Album (Blackbird). Similarly, OpenLIVE has been building a strong reputation as a live audio recording solution which can produce a mixed and mastered recording almost instantly following a performance.
And to make use of this pioneering technology on the OpenLIVE tour, a limited edition physical CD of Dan Sultans’ sold-out National Theatre concert from earlier in the year will be available for sale exclusively at these up-coming shows. The album will also be available digitally from November 13.
Capturing the raw power and emotion of Dan Sultan live, the album is unlike anything else he has released before and features tracks from across his recording career along with his unique and entertaining commentary.
Don’t miss Dan Sultan on his OpenLIVE tour.
Tickets on sale from this Friday October 16.
