WATCH: Budjerah, Ngaiire and Gretta Ray’s cover of The Temper Trap’s hit single ‘Sweet Disposition’ recorded for The Sound.
Liberation Records are proud to give an official release to Budjerah, Ngaiire and Gretta Ray’s cover of The Temper Trap’s hit single ‘Sweet Disposition’. Originally recorded for The Sound, the track is an anthemic rendition, highlighting each of the artist’s vocals and swirling into a grandiose chorus. All proceeds from the single will be donated to The Yiriman Project – an Indigenous organisation operating in the Kimberleys that works tirelessly to prevent youth suicide in community. All money raised goes directly into programs devoted to helping Aboriginal youth in the region by taking them ‘back to Country’ in the company of their Elders, where they can begin to reconnect with their culture and strengthen their sense of identity.
The release also coincides with The Temper Trap’s live return, performing the track at the AFL Grand Final over the weekend, joined by Budjerah and Ngaiire for the special performance. The band are also set to support Kings of Leon on their Australian national tour this October.
The Temper Trap: “We’re really happy to see this fantastic cover get an official release and even happier to see all the proceeds going to the Yiriman Project. They do an amazing job working with Indigenous youth and we’re honoured to be aiding their important work.”
Ngaiire: “What a wild way to release this track, off the back of performing at the MCG with The Temper Trap and Budjerah. So happy we get to release this to raise money for The Yiriman Project.”
Gretta Ray: “Getting to sing alongside the Yavusa Choir and the two powerhouse voices of Ngaiire and Budjerah was such an honour. We covered this song as a tribute to Michael Gudinski, which made performing such a timeless, classic Australian song feel all the more special. I love the spectacular venue we filmed this performance in in Sydney, and I love that a year later the cover is having another moment at the AFL Grand Final! I’m so grateful to have been involved in this.”
Budjerah: “I’m so excited for this song to be out! Feels really special.”
