Nolly’s rolling up his sleeves and getting to work, y’guys. So for fans who are gagging to hear material from his forthcoming album live and in the flesh, this is for you.
The Idol superstar has been flying low under the radar for the past few years and to be honest, I don’t think he’s gonna have much problem slipping back into the spotlight and reclaiming his audience. There’s not a lot of Aussie male pop rockers in the game coming for Nolly’s crowd and sound, is there? On top of that, he’s a consistent artist and performer – what you’ve loved from day one is what you’re gonna love in 2011. His music doesn’t really waver to trends except the occasional forays into a more youthful spunky rock sound. But y’all can handle that.
A Million Suns – Nolly’s fourth studio album – sees him reuniting with Bryon Jones who hemmed his first two albums and collaborations with songwriters Lindsay Rimes (ace writer who has worked with everyone from Stan Walker to The McClymonts), DNA (Sydney-based team who has worked with Zoe Badwi) and good old Adam Reily who’s no stranger to the Idol franchise having worked on material for Guy Sebastian, Jessica Mauboy, Damien Leith and Kate DeAraugo.
