With his Brisbane and Melbourne (plus international) tour dates already selling out, Australian singer-song writer and multi-instrumentalist, Xavier Rudd has added additional shows for both those cities, while also announcing two new WA shows for his upcoming Storm Boy Album Tour. The tour kicks off in Canberra on August 2 (full tour dates listed below).
Rudd’s ninth studio album Storm Boy, is released today via Warner Music Australia and features the previously released tracks Walk Away andTimes Like These. To listen or download Storm Boy, click here.
Xavier spoke of today’s release, “I’m super excited to offer Storm Boy to the world. It’s been an amazing journey making this album, many magical collaborations with talented people and many stories to tell. Some of the tracks I’ve had tucked under my wing for up to 10 years and I’ve waited for the right time to bring them to life. I feel like we captured some magic for sure, we explored new territories/sounds but we also peeled stuff back to its rawest form like my early recording days. I’m proud of this album, happy to share and hopeful folks dig it!”
It’s been six years since Rudd’s last solo release, the ARIA #2 and Gold Certified Spirit Bird, and a lot of things have happened in that time. Storm Boy tracks the journey along the way.
