New Single ‘Candle’ Gains Traction

The new single, ‘Candle’, from Guy Sebastian has already gained traction with new and old fans alike.

MusicFeeds have labelled it “an electro-soul stomper packed with processed guitars and thumping drum loops”, comparing it to “the mutant offspring of Hozier, Flume, Diplo, SAFIA and Nothing But Thieves, only with Guy Smiley’s unmistakable golden pipes shining at the fore.” Read the whole article here.

GUY DROPS NEW SINGLE ‘CANDLE’ TODAY

“If someone said to me, ‘there’s no rules – there’s no boundaries to what you want to do’… what sort of music would I make?”

After what can only be described as an incredible career to date, today Australian superstar GUY SEBASTIAN is surprising fans with a brand new track, ‘Candle’

This brand new single is the first piece of work to be heard from new material that came out of an inspiring studio session with Guy’s good friends Jon Hume and Trey Campbell. What started with a drum loop has finished as a belter of a tune, as Guy takes a bold step towards his true musical influences, channelling the grunt of Lenny Kravitz whilst still maintaining his signature soulful vocal. Written for his wife Jules (and her favourite so far) this growling contemporary serenade is about kicking aside temptations on the road when you know the key to your heart is waiting at home.

The creation of ‘Candle’ was as spontaneous as it sounds; the guts of the tune written in a half-hour clash of inspiration and now released only three months later with no warning and zero fanfare. “I like that I’m just throwing it out there, seeing what it does on its own legs,” explains Guy.

After ten unforgettable but taxing years on the pop trail, Guy needed a break last year to recharge and realign his artistic priorities. “You get thrown into a world and you just pedal and pedal to keep going. You’re living in constant fear that doing music for a living is only fleeting and you’ve got to make the most of it, so you don’t take a holiday and you don’t stop.”

“Finally I took a moment to get off the treadmill and now I’m super inspired by the industry again because there’s no rules – and electronica is just killing it! I’ve never loved music so much.”

Guy Sebastian Teams Up With Paces

Guy Sebastian and Sydney producer Paces continue their collaborative efforts, including recording and performing together.

The pair surprised triple j listeners, when Guy joined Paces to cover ‘Keeping Score’ by L D R U for Like A Version.

Again surprising listeners, Guy appeared on stage at Splendour In The Grass with Paces to perform the same cover, as well as ‘Desert’, a track featuring Guy off of Paces debut album.
