Thelma Plum has covered the Powderfinger classic ‘These Days’.
Thelma says, “I was given the chance to record a song I grew up with, and as a Brissie local, I already know a couple of the Powderfinger guys so of course, I said yes. I even recorded parts of it in Ian’s (Haug, Powderfinger guitarist) studio, which made it feel even more natural.”
Powderfinger recorded ‘These Days’ for the 1999 movie ‘Two Hands’. The song was first released as a b-side to the ‘Passenger’ single from the previous album ‘Internationalist’. A re-recorded version was included the following year on their fourth studio album ‘Odyssey Number Five’. Despite the song not being released as a single, it reached number one on Triple J’s Hottest 100 in 1999.
2020 saw Thelma Plum nominated for two APRA Awards. Her 2020 tour starting in November is still planned to go ahead.
