Though it draws inspiration from afar, Blackbird is also a simple journey of a man singing about love, desire and identity. The album describes the years of searching that came before it. It’s there in the charging second single ‘The Same Man’; it’s in the ode to country ‘Kimberley Calling’ and in Blackbird’s stripped back final track, ‘Gullible Few’. The album marks a new beginning for Sultan and sees powerhouse riffs met by crackling gospel interludes, old-school rock and roll jams, pure country tones, bare and aching ballads, harmonies, horns, banjos – even an Arabic scale or two. This is Dan Sultan coming into his own.
Sultan performed at triple J’s One Night Stand in Mildura in May. In late May 2014, he’ll headline The Long Walk Wellbeing Concert at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl.
