For Kate Ceberano, Steve Kilbey and Sean Sennett, ‘The Dangerous Age’ has been a two-year project. Full details of the project have now been released with the album due 31 January.
Sean Sennett said in a statement, “working with Kate and Steve has been a thrill. Ceberano and Kilbey were big figures in the culture when I was growing up. Kate broke boundaries as a female performer in this country with I’m Talking and then as a solo artist. The first time I saw her on Countdown is burned in my memory. And it’s the same with Steve. 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”.
“When I listen to ‘All Tied Up’ now,” says Kate Ceberano, “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.…”
