Recorded with his band The Alter Egos (which includes Martin Rotsey from the Oils on guitar) and produced by Tony Buchen (Smashing Pumpkins, Montaigne, G-Flip, Tim Finn) the album will be previewed at a handful of live performances (click here for dates) over coming months. It will be Peter’s second solo release, following 2016’s A Version Of Now which made the top 3 on the ARIA chart.
The first song to be revealed from The True North is the title track; a quietly evocative ode to “kinship and conscience” which was made available last Friday.
With the Oils, and even the first solo record, there was plenty of banging down the doors and speaking out about the things that need to change”, Peter reflects. “There’s still a bit of that in this album too of course but generally these songs are reflective of the special things we need to cherish; the natural world as well as our always spinning internal compass, that helps us navigate the unruly passage of life. That’s why I wanted to share this song first – it sets a different tone.”
