More details have come to light about the new Bertie Blackman album ‘The Dash’, which will see the light of day in early October.
The Sydney-born songstress revealed the official cover image for the new LP (above) on her social media sites in the middle of last week, but it’s now been confirmed that the album will be made available in both standard and deluxe editions and will be a little more pop than her previous releases.
“I wanted to take all the things I really love about music and turn it into a pop moment,” Bertie says of the new project. “I’m a solo writer, but I wanted to learn how the rest of the world writes pop music. I wanted to explore my voice, explore the structure of pop music and hooks – find how I could have fun making music again.”
She collaborated on the new album with the likes of The Presets’ Julian Hamilton, Louis Schoorl (Jess Mauboy, Tina Arena) and John Castle.
The standard edition of the album comprises just the nine tracks, but three bonus tracks – acoustic versions – have been added to the deluxe version, which strangely is currently available for iTunes pre-order for less than the price of the standard.
‘The Dash’ will be released on Friday October 03.
