Xavier Rudd To Release ‘Storm Boy’ On May 25; Listen To “Times Like These” Here

May 7, 2018 BY Nettwerk


Australian singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Xavier Rudd will release his latest studio album Storm Boy on May 25 via Nettwerk Records. With today’s announcement, Xavier shares the closing song from the forthcoming album called “Times Like These.” The latest track, accompanied by just a guitar and harmonica, shows the artist’s message of simplicity and mindfulness.

For Xavier Rudd, writing music and living his life are one and the same. “I’m literally just singing about the things that are going on around me,” he says. Environmental work, veganism, spiritualism, surfing, exploring new corners of his beloved homeland; everything Rudd does, he pours into song. The result is a personal sound that strikes a universal note.

Storm Boy is produced by Chris Bond (Ben Howard, Tom Speight) and mixed by Tim Palmer (Pearl Jam, David Bowie, U2) and first single “Walk Away” showcases his incomparable songwriting craftsmanship and is an impressive addition to his ever-growing legacy.

To support the album, Xavier has announced Australian, North American and European tours for 2018. In 2017, Xavier played his largest European tour to-date, performing a whopping 28 shows over 34 days to more than 30,000 people. This year, he will surpass this record with his biggest tour yet. With a massive intercontinental world tour, Xavier will perform shows across North America, Africa, Australia/New Zealand, United Kingdom and Europe in the largest venues of his career. Visiting 18 countries (with even more to be announced) this massive itinerary is a good indicator of how Xavier feels about the new record. He wants nothing more than to get out and play it for his worldwide fanbase.
