Didirri’s guide to listening to Sold For Sale: “Take a brisk walk in the sunshine for the first 4 tracks, then listen to the next two in your room as your heart rate goes down, and then finally, close your eyes, and lie down for the closing track and let it wash over you.”

ABOUT DIDIRRI AND SOLD FOR SALE
Didirri Peters grew up in the coastal Australian countryside. Taking his writing cues from family, philosophers, comedians, friends and lovers, he reveals himself using words and music with unparalleled openness. His critically acclaimed debut EP Measurements (2018) collected over 31 million combined streams and led to Didirri playing such renowned festivals as the UK’s The Great Escape and Latitude Festivals,Australia’s Splendour In The Grass and Barcelona’s Primavera Sound. He toured the US and UK twice in under six months. He shared the stage with such acts as Vance Joy, Hozier and Middle Kids. And most recently, he was put on the world stage for Eurovision: Australia Decides.
Partially recorded in a house in the isolated and concentrated rural idyll of Johanna (Australia’s south-west coast), partially recorded at the iconic Sunset Sound studio in Los Angeles, and partially recorded via sound files and video calls with musicians scattered all over the world during the COVID-19 pandemic, the EP’s recording spans the globe. It’s because of this that Sold for Sale is as much a physical and metaphorical journey for the artist as it is a sonic journey for the listener.
For the first three songs on Sold For Sale (“Sold For Sale,” “The Critic,” and “Loose Belt Drive”), Didirri teamed up with legendary producer Joe Chiccarelli (Rufus Wainwright, Young The Giant, Vance Joy, and countless others), while the back end of Sold For Sale was produced by Dann Hume (Courtney Barnett, Troye Sivan).
If his debut Measurements EP (2018) was a walk through the dark tunnel of life, the time since then shows that Didirri has grown as a person, an artist and as a songwriter. Two more years of life and experience, with two more years of stories to tell, Sold for Sale holds our hands and gently leads us towards the light.
