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:
