Today Dan Sultan releases his new, collaborative EP Killer Under A Blood Moon. The special, 6-track EP is available today and features tracks from Sultan’s ARIA-Award nominated album Killer, reinterpreted by Dan and some of the brightest and most important names in Australian music right now – A.B. Original, Camp Cope, Gang of Youths’ Dave Le’aupepe and Meg Mac.
Recorded live at Red Moon Studios with close friend and producer Jan Skubiszewski, the EP is a testament to the respect Sultan garners in his peers, and adds to his already glowing catalogue of music. Leading up to its release, Sultan has shared a new song weekly with fans, including ‘Drover (Feat. Dave Le’aupepe)’, ‘Reaction (Feat. Meg Mac)’ and ‘Killer (Feat. Camp Cope)’. Each release has been accompanied by a live video from the studio.
The EP rounds off with two unheard glam-bent bonus tracks, ‘Pitchfork’ and ‘Coming Back’, which were written around the time the songs from Killer came to be.
Killer debuted at #5 on the ARIA Albums Chart and received three nominations at last year’s ARIA Awards. It featured on numerous Best Albums of 2017 lists, with lead single ‘Hold It Together’ nominated for APRA’s Song of the Year. It has also garnered Sultan a nomination for Best Independent Blues and Roots Album at this year’s AIR Awards, which will take place on July 26.
Sultan is currently in the midst of an extensive solo tour for Killer, which sees him stripping things back to basics – just himself, his piano and guitar – for an incredible 44 date theatre run nationwide. Limited tickets remain for select shows.
