May 19 2016 will mark the 25th anniversary of Daryl Braithwaite ‘The Horses’ reached number one on the Australian music chart.

Daryl Braithwaite says the song was an “accident”. In a statement he said, “I would never of thought that 25 years down the track that ‘The Horses’, a song that I heard quite by accident and then recorded, would be liked by so many people for so many different reasons, for this I am eternally grateful. I am sure that Rickie Lee Jones and Walter Becker could never imagine how endearing the song would and has become. My thanks to Sony Music and Simon Hussey and everyone involved with the recording.”

‘The Horses’ was written by Rickie Lee Jones and Steely Dan’s Walter Becker. Daryl recorded the song for his 1990 album ‘Rise’. It was the second single released from the album.

Denis Handlin AM, Chairman and CEO of Australia & New Zealand and President Asia Sony Music Entertainment adds, “Daryl Braithwaite is a true legend of the Australian music Industry. From his early days in Sherbet to his magnificent solo career, Daryl continues to appeal to generations of Australians. His classic song ‘The Horses’ is more popular now than it ever was, twenty five years later.”

‘The Rise’ album was the number one album of 1991 and sold over 300,000 copies in Australia.
