Savage Garden To Release Early Demo On New Compilation

Savage Garden will release one of their earliest recordings, a demo of ‘She’ from 1994, on the upcoming compilation ‘Savage Garden: The Singles’.

‘She’ was discovered when Daniel Jones and Darren Hayes were compiling the album.

Of the song Darren Hayes said, “It’s a long time ago, but my recollection is I was writing about the relationship that I have, and continue to have, with the women in my life. From my Sister to my Mother and all the friends and the wonderful female relationships in my life. I know I’m indebted to these incredibly strong women who loved me and taught me what it was like to be strong and succeed in a world where you sometimes feel underestimated.”

Daniel Jones added, “From memory I think we just sat down and literally wrote it together in my parents’ house in Brisbane. I remember my mother really liked the track – the innocence and raw beauty of it. It’s very pro-female song so I think a lot of girls will relate to how powerful it is for them. I think that was probably the biggest reason why my Mum really took to this particular song”.

You can listen to the new song ‘She’ at the Savage Garden website.

Savage Garden released two album before the Jones/Hayes relationship disintegrated and they split for good. There will not be a reunion to mark the 20th anniversary.

In their day, Savage Garden released two albums ‘Savage Garden’ (1997) and ‘Affirmation’ (1999). ‘Savage Garden’ reached no 1 in Australia, no 2 in the UK and no 3 in the USA. In America it sold over 7 million copies. ‘Affirmation’ reached no 1in Australia, no 7 in the UK and no 6 in the USA. It sold a further 3 million in the USA making both Jones and Hayes wealthy for life.

Savage Garden The Singles will be released on June 12.
