Global superstar and multi-award-winning songwriter Tones And I has shared a new standalone single titled “I Am Free”. Available today on all streaming platforms, “I Am Free” is joined by an official music video streaming now on Tones And I’s YouTube channel. The new single comes ahead of joining Macklemore on his UK and Europe spring headline tour, which includes dates in Dublin, Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham and London this April.
Commenting on the new song, Tones And I Shared, “‘I Am Free’ is a song about relationships in my life, that have ended. It’s about self-reflecting on those relationships, acknowledging that I still carry parts of them with me and taking my share of responsibility for what happened. I wrote the song, composed it, co-produced it, and recorded it with my choir and an orchestra. I also wrote and co-directed the film clip and wanted it to be powerful, joyful and anthemic.”
“I Am Free” follows Tones And I’s recent single “I Made It” – composed for the Netflix original film True Spirit – her 2022 single “Charlie” and her feature on Macklemore’s “Chant.” The pair debuted the collaboration on Good Morning America with an electrifying performance in New York City’s Central Park.
Released in 2021, Tones And I’s debut album Welcome To The Madhouse landed at #1 on Australia’s ARIA Albums Chart continuing an incredible string of successes for Tones And I. The record details an intimately honest and vivid journey from busking in Byron Bay to international stardom to saying goodbye to her best friend. Tones And I weaves it all together into a moving and magnetic 14-track collection written entirely by the Australian artist with her co-producing every song. The album is highlighted by the multi-platinum hit single “Fly Away,” a poetic and powerful composition which Tones And I delivered performances of on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Welcome To The Madhouse also features “Won’t Sleep,” which arrived alongside a Tones And I, Nick Kozakis and Liam Kelly directed official music video, and “Cloudy Day,” which which won ARIA Song of the Year in 2022. VARIETYhailed it as “the perfect pandemic anthem” with Tones And I performing the song on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and TODAY.
