Missy Higgins To Mark 20 Years Of The Sound of White With Concert Performances in 2024

by Paul Cashmere on December 8, 2023

in News

Missy Higgins will perform her debut ‘The Sound of White’ in 2024 to mark the 20th anniversary of the release of the album.

Missy released ‘The Sound of White’ on 6 September 2004. ‘The Sound of White’ was a number one album in Australia and sold nine times platinum.

The album generated four hit singles, ‘Scar, (no 1, 2004), ‘Ten Days’ (no 12, 2004), ‘The Special Two’ (no 2, 2005) and ‘The Sound of White’ (no 22, 2005).

“I wrote all those songs in my late teens when I never thought anyone would hear them, so they were very personal, like I was writing my secrets in a diary”, says Missy. “I did less of that on later albums for lots of reasons but lately I realized I’d gone back to that confessional mode of songwriting. I guess it’s been my way of dealing with the end of my marriage. So I feel like I’ve come full circle … I was starting life from scratch at 20 and now, like lots of people, I’m figuring out how to start life all over again at 40.”

“In that respect this new album that I’m recording right now will be a kind of sequel to The Sound Of White. They’re both looking forward nervously and wondering what comes next. They’re both asking questions like “who am I?” and “who do I want to be?” so I liked the idea of previewing some of this new material in the first act of a live show, then going back to the start of the story in the second act. Plus it will just be fun to play all those old songs again for the first time in ages. At very least it will be something different and if I’ve learned anything over the last year or two it’s that you’ve got to keep embracing new challenges!”
