Byron Bay singer-songwriter and one of Australia’s most loved musicians, Pete Murray has today released his new single, Take Me Down (out now), alongside the announcement of his sixth studio album, Camacho – available June 2. With over one million album sales to his name, the quiet achiever of Australian music will showcase new tracks and old favourites on an epic 33-date national Camacho Tour that will kickstart in Lismore on July 12 and finish up in Darwin on September 9.
Beat-driven and anthemic, Take Me Down cleverly reveals a new direction for Pete, yet still manages to feel like a catch up with an old friend – his smooth, familiar voice both warm and inviting. “Take me down is about a beautiful relationship with an unknown future,” insights Pete. “It’s about not knowing how much time is left and being in the moment. It’s emotive, moody, sexual and vulnerable.”
Determined to shake things up and find a fresh sound for the album, Pete explored different writing and recording techniques. “My main goal was to work with loops and beats and to have a cool, phat drum sound,” says Pete. He collaborated with hip hop producer Trials (AB Original) to achieve the drum sounds he was looking for, and saddled up with an array of well-known industry talent to get the Camacho show on the road. “There was only one guy that I was interested in mixing this album and that was Eric J Dubowsky. He was starting to do a lot of phat, warm sounds and I really wanted this flavour of mixing on my album.” Also in the assemblage was Aussie producer Tony Buchen (Montaigne, The Preatures, Bob Evans), Sydney-based producer One Above aka Andrew Burford (Hilltop Hoods, Drapht, Allday), and ARIA winning producer Jon Hume (Matt Corby, Lisa Mitchell).

Rosie Burgess releases the music video for single ‘Run Through The Fire’ from her new EP Handful, Part Two. Along with her trio which features Sam Lohs on drums and Tim Bennett on bass, Burgess will launch the new EP with a string of shows including The Toff in Town in Melbourne on May 11, The Bottlerocket in Nowra on 12 May, Culburra Beach Festival on 13 May and Sydney’s Petersham Bowling Club on 14 May.
In ‘Run through the Fire’ Burgess confronts the malaise threatening so many of her generation – the feeling that life has yet to deliver. The song, with its pounding Mumford-and-Sons-esque drums and powerful harmonies, delivers a sense of hope, which, according to Burgess, is the ultimate antidote.
