Australian music legend Judith Durham has released the lyric video for ‘You Are My Star’, the song she co-wrote with the unusual pairing of Chocolate Starfish frontman Adam Thompson.

“I am very grateful to Adam for giving me this mindful and emotional experience,” Judith tells Noise11.com. “We achieved something. Thank God we were brought together by the Universe to create something special. It was so unexpected that the two of us would ever meet. It was a meeting of the minds and emotions”.

The song appears in Judith Durham’s latest album ‘So Much More’. ‘So Much More’ was the number one album on the ARIA Jazz and Blues Chart last week in Australia.

“John Kovac had suggested that I co-write with people, which was essentially to do some work for The Seekers ‘Future Road’ album,” Judith adds. “John instigated first of all that I would get together with Mark Holden, Then I was sent over to America for a month to write with several different people. John, put me with Adam. We got together. We were in my hotel room. I was given a keyboard while I was staying there because I was also composing with Russ Kunkel. Apparently Adam had a tape machine and was able to get the melody down. We had one day to get together”.

Adam has more info on the pairing. “It came about after hearing me and she said that was a voice I’d like to sing with,” Adam tells Noise11. “She turned up once to the Crown to see us sing. Being a cheeky thing I said to her jump up with us and do ‘Georgy Girl’ and she did. About six months after that we were in Los Angeles. I had started writing this lullaby and took it to her. I said, there’s this song ‘You Are My Star’ but I hadn’t fleshed out the verse and what I wanted to say. We started to work on it, later we demoed it. It resonated with her and is on the album and became the first single”.

The song became the lead song for the ‘So Much More’ album. “When I sing that song I have an amazing visual in my mind. I think of galaxies and the hugeness of everything. It’s very personal about having love in your heart all the time, it is a very vast concept and I find it inspiring to sing it”.

‘So Much More’ was released on 26 June 2018. The album is a collection of 14 previously unreleased songs with other songs co-written with her Seekers bandmate Keith Potger as well as Mark Holden.
