Missy Higgins Sets Oz Tour Dates

by Paul Cashmere on August 12, 2014

in Live,News

Missy Higgins will tour Australia in September off the back of her new album ‘Oz’.

‘Oz’ is Missy’s covers album, featuring songs from artists like Paul Kelly, The Angels, Perry Keys and The Drones.

“I wanted to put together a group of wonderful Australian songs just as a different sort of challenge,” she said in a statement. “I wanted to avoid all the obvious ones though because “Great Aussie Songbook” collections have kinda been done to death. All that mattered was whether I felt I could make the songs my own so the tracklisting ended up as a real mixed bag of lollies.”

“Then I thought it might be fun to also try writing some essays to accompany the music in various ways and that lead to the book.”

“The essays and the music are meant to be enjoyed together like I’m nattering away while the album plays. But, of course, if people just want to just enjoy them separately then that’s fine too.”
