Hot on the heels of sold-out shows in Melbourne and Sydney, and a North American tour with Missy Higgins, Butterfly Boucher returns for her first headlining Australian tour.
To coincide with the tour, Butterfly will be releasing her new single, ‘Not Fooling Around’, a synth-laden dance tune that meets film-score, which lyrically treads a fine line between mischief and regret.
She says: “‘Not Fooling Around’ might be one of the trickiest songs for me to recreate live, especially when I’m just playing solo! But at my recent Melbourne show, without any prompting, the audience backed me up, singing the song with me from top to bottom. I was blown away. After that experience it seemed like a no-brainer to make it my next single… the fans have spoken!”
Following her Australian tour, Butterfly will rejoin Missy Higgins as bassist and vocalist for a final year-end tour of Higgins’ highly acclaimed, Boucher-produced album The Ol’ Razzle Dazzle. “As much as I probably need a big fat holiday, I really want to see this chapter through. It has been a fulfilling year, getting to work with Missy, to co-produce her record and then help bring it to life on the road. It’ll feel good to play these songs with her for one last tour. Plus she’s generously invited me to play one of my own songs during her set, so how could I refuse?”
‘Not Fooling Around’ will be released on October 26.
