Recording a live version of ‘Tell me how it ends’ for the film clip at 301 Studios Byron Bay with #bernardfanning #nickdidia #bandoffrequencies
Sarah Blasko reveals her new ‘All Of Me’ which is as pure and unsettling as the song itself.
Working with Wilk, an admired visual artist with whom Blasko has collaborated on many occasions, the pair set out to create a performance based video that was at once, equally beautiful and strange.
More akin to the art house films of Béla Tarr and Michelangelo Antonioni than a pop video, Wilk says of the process: “I took the song literally: lyrically and emotionally. Sarah wanted something intimate, simple. The result is an unconventional single take video. The altered state of Sarah’s appearance and her apparent nudity is in purpose devoid of sexuality, replacing it with honesty, bravery and intimacy.”
Blasko adds: “We wanted to blur the border between the natural and the unnatural. The song itself likens falling in love to the purity of being a newborn but love is also at its best when it comes from a place of understanding and experience”
For those who cannot wait until July to experience Sarah Blasko live, triple j will be broadcasting her Melbourne show from February’s I Awake tour as part of their Live At the Wireless series on Monday 10th June.
‘All Of Me’ is taken from the album “I Awake” - available here.
Tickets to Sarah’s regional tour are on sale Tuesday 11 June.

As a very special treat for your Friday, here’s another taste of Bernard Fanning’s new album ‘Departures’.
This track is called ‘Departures (Blue Toowong Skies)’.
Says Bernard, “My Dad died at the beginning of 2011 which coincided with the biggest floods Brisbane has seen. This was something that loomed pretty large for me over the whole writing period of this album and I suppose a song like this was bound to come out. The lyric is talking about the place in Brisbane where I grew up. Toowong, a near city suburb that my Dad also spent his childhood in and ended up being buried in, along with my older brother, who I now happen to be older than.”
Emerging from the grips of indefinite hiatus, Whitley returns with new single ‘My Heart Is Not A Machine’. Propelled by a soft, mechanical heartbeat, the track is lifted from Whitley’s forthcoming album “Even The Stars Are A Mess”.
It’s the first taste of new album- a project that saw Lawrence travel the world over (by way of Mexico, Cuba, England, The Netherlands, Peru and Italy, among others) before arriving in The Amazon Rainforest to shoot the video for ‘My Heart Is Not A Machine’.
The track follows news of Whitley’s return, having been added to the sold out Splendour in the Grass lineup and announcing his own run of headline shows throughout July. Kicking off in Brisbane on Friday 12th July, the Even The Stars Are A Mess Tour will see Lawrence back on stage, joined by folk-pop chanteuse Esther Holt as a special guest.
The single is available to purchase now from iTunes.
Tickets to the Even The Stars Are A Mess Tour are on sale now.
