NEW TRACK WILL APPEAR ON FORTHCOMING DEBUT ALBUM “APART TOGETHER”
(LONDON, U.K., THURSDAY 18 JUNE 2020) Following the release of his first single “Leaving LA”, influential Australian performer Tim Minchin has today released the follow up track “I’ll Take Lonely Tonight” from his upcoming album “Apart Together” due November 2020. The new track is an exquisitely wrought anthemic ballad, digging into the touchy topic of fidelity in typical Minchin style. “I’ll Take Lonely Tonight” is available now. Listen and watch [HERE].
“When I started playing this tune on tour early last year, it became clear that it was really affecting people,” said Minchin. “I thought this temptation tug-of-war might be something experienced more by touring musos… but I kept getting people – men and women equally – telling me that it really hit home for them.
The studio version is six and a half minutes long (!) and sonically fucking gorgeous, with Jak Housden’s haunting guitar and Dan Denholm’s epic production. Caro Constantine, who is a director and DOP I’d worked with before, came on board to help me make a film that reflects the dynamic of the tune and the push-and-pull of drunken temptation. I can’t wait for it to be released into the wild.”
He continues “This video is dedicated to the many people who have always wanted me to sing a song in a suit in a boat. It is the second single from my album, Apart Together, due out later this year. I recommend sticking your headphones in and turning it up. It gets epic.”
