Russell Morris - Black and Blue Heart

Russell Morris - Black and Blue Heart
After six decades on the road, an album can almost write itself. But it takes a rare combination of talent and circumstances to realise that vision as vividly as Russell Morris does on Black And Blue Heart.

Having moved north a year prior, the warmer environs had already exerted a strange, organic influence on the songs Russell Morris was writing in the wake of his platinum-selling, ARIA-winning blues-rock trilogy — Sharkmouth, Van Diemen's Land, and Red Dirt Red Heart — that so spectacularly relaunched his career from 2012 onwards.

He sent the song demos to Byron Bay based producers Nick DiDia (Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Powderfinger) and Bernard Fanning and “they rang me back within two days,” Russell says. “They said, ‘We can't stop listening to these songs.’”

The two producers speed-dialled their dream studio team: guitarist Dan Kelly, drummer Declan Kelly and, from Fanning's touring band, bassist Matt Englebrecht and keys player Ian Peres, and perched between the tropical bush and panoramic ocean views of La Cueva Studios near Byron Bay, Black And Blue Heart found its rhythm immediately.

About this track...

Black and Blue Heart is the title track, a song of simmering tenderness and empathy, that Bernard Fanning describes as “a song for the ages”. “Russell’s been a really substantial artist for a very long time but I think that song will live on with his best,” he says.
