Powderfinger’s Darren Middleton Releases First Solo Song

in New Music,News

Darren Middleton of Powderfinger has released the first song from his first solo album ‘Translations’.

“It’s finally here, the first song off my new album and I couldn’t be a happier camper,” Darren said announcing the release of the song ‘Let Go’.

After two decades through Universal with Powderfinger Darren has opted for the indie route for the ‘Translations’ album. “After quite a bit of consideration and the fact that I have been 100% hands on in every step of this process, I have decided to release the album independently. This affords me the freedom to choose the flight path of my record,” he says “but the problem with that, is that are bucket-loads of decisions to be made!!! The first major one though, is to be able to release worldwide at the same time, which was a big priority for me, as in the past, I often found it frustrating when releases were staggered overseas”.

The release of ‘Let Go’ and the upcoming album releases will be simultaneously worldwide.

In 2005 Darren released the album ‘The Way Out’ through his side-project Drag. Darren was lead singer and guitarist for Drag with Sean Hartman in bass, Matt Murphy on keyboards and Mark McElligott on drums.

‘Translations’ will be showcased at BIGSOUND on September 11 with Marty Brown (Clare Bowditch), John Hedigan (Something for Kate) and Jamie Barlow (The Melodics/Private Life). You Am I’s Davey Lane played guitar on the album.

The Darren Middleton BIGSOUND showcase date:

September 11, Brisbane, Black Bear Lodge (as part of BIGSOUND)
