Following on from two powerhouse singles ‘Battleships’ and ‘Tell Me How It Ends’ Bernard Fanning offers up ‘GROW AROUND YOU’ lifted from his latest #1 album Departures. It is change of pace to its predecessors from the now certified Goldalbum; replacing voltage and beefed up guitar solos with an honest lyric that is all at once heartfelt and sincere.
‘Grow Around You’ – a clear live favourite - sits at the end of Bernard’s national Departures Tour. The extensive string of dates that saw rave reviews and repeat sell-outs across the country, not to mention a headline spot on Splendour In The Grass.
Bernard’s live run is far from over, with his band stopping by the Footy Show’s AFL Grand Final Special on Thursday 26th September for a special televised headline-performance from Rod Laver Arena. He’ll then venture to Alice Springs to play Mbantua Festival on Saturday 12th October alongside Missy Higgins and Dan Sultan before hitting the road once again this Spring for A Day On The Green. It will be a slightly more civilised affair than that of his gruelling 20-date Departures Tour, seeing him onstage against the natural backdrop of the vineyards of Mudgee and the Hunter Valley (NSW), Barossa Valley (SA), Yarra Valley (VIC), Mt Cotton (QLD) and the picturesque Kings Park in Perth.
‘Grow Around You’ is taken from Bernard Fanning’s latest album Departures - out now via Dew Process/Universal Music Australia.
