DAN SULTANANNOUNCES KILLER ALBUM RELEASE & HUGE NATIONAL TOUR
Two weeks ago, Dan Sultan wrapped up a sold-out solo tour and unveiled new single ‘Hold It Together’ which offered a stirring snapshot of his eagerly awaited forthcoming album.
Today, it gives Liberation Music much pleasure to confirm that Dan’s fourth album, Killer, will be released on July 28, shortly after his appearance at Splendour In The Grass. Dan will also return to the road for an extensive run of dates in support of the release throughout September, this time backed by a full band.
Recorded with producer and long-time collaborator Jan Skubiszewski in Melbourne, Killer is a sophisticated leap forward for the Melbourne singer-songwriter. Tracks like current single ‘Hold It Together’ and the previously released ‘Magnetic’ see him stepping out as the songwriter he has always promised to become. Lyrically, he’s more reflective than on previous records – there’s a broader weighing of life’s ups and downs present on Killer – and the album introduces synthesisers and drum machines to lift powerful rhythms, and heightens emotions with gospel backing vocals that sound bigger than cathedral choirs.
The tour will see Dan strutting his stuff in the live arena as he does best – up front, but supported by a full band, with a collection of new material to showcase. “It’s a whole new show. New music, new band, new vibe. I can’t wait for everyone to see it!”
Tickets on sale Wednesday 7 June at 9am.
