With Kate Ceberano, Steve Kilbey and Sean Sennett’s ‘The Dangerous Age’ album given a 31 January 2020 release date, the track ‘All Tied Up’ has been dropped as a preview.

“When I listen to ‘All Tied Up’ now I can’t help feel as though someone else wrote and sang this song … it’s so different to any other song I’ve ever sung. I wrote from within the words, I was writing the music and the melody to create an atmosphere of surf, empty space and unfinished business. It’s like the sound of the suburbs where I grew up. Pregnant with subtext.…,” Kate Ceberano said in a statement.

Steve Kilbey channeled Grant McLennan for his part in the song. “I told Sean I could write Grant McLennan-esque lyrics at will,” explains Kilbey. “I felt Grant helped me write a few things for myself. When Sean gave me ‘All Tied Up’, I started writing “Grant” lyrics for this Grant-esque song … I didn’t realise it was for Kate.”

The track is truly a three-way creative. “I’d been sending Kate my lyrics for some time,” continues Sean Sennett, “and was knocked out by Kate’s way with a melody and her songwriting gifts. I decided that rather than use the lyrics for ‘All Tied Up’ on my record, I would send it to Kate. I purposefully didn’t tell her that Steve was involved. I didn’t want Steve’s input to colour her natural decisions. The strangest thing was, they’d never met. I think we were about three or four songs deep before I even told her of Steve’s involvement”.

In September, ‘Monument City Lights 1973’ was released. Sennett says, “A lifetime ago I remember sitting in a cinema as a teenager and they showed three film clips from the Church’s Blurred Crusade before the film started. To have sat with Kate in her studio jamming while we were writing ‘Not The Loving Kind’, or to be hitting lyric lines back and forth with Steve during the writing of ‘Monument City Lights, 1973’ was a fantastic experience for me.

‘The Dangerous Age’ was recorded remotely. Kate worked with Rod Bustos in Melbourne, Steve and Sean worked out of Sydney and Brisbane. Jason Millhouse mixed the album in Brisbane.
