The Gamilaraay singer songwriter and ARIA Award winner Thelma Plum has recently announced the rescheduled dates for her upcoming Australia wide 'Homecoming Queen' tour, originally scheduled for May-July. This is the light at the end of the tunnel, for many loving fans, in spite of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Thelma Plum has had a massive twelve months. In July last year she released her debut album ‘Better in Blak,' which went on to recieve a number of awards these being; placing second in the Triple J album of the year, receiving six ARIA nominations (including Album of the Year, Best Pop Release, Best Female and Breakthrough Artist), two APRA nominations, two National Indigenous Music Award nominations (for Album and Song of the Year) and, with three songs in the Hottest 100 including the album’s title track at #9, she became the highest fan voted indigenous artist in the history of the poll.
Over sixty million global streams, a national sold out tour and a debut London show that sold out two months in advance – it was, truly, a monumental twelve months.
Taking a break to record "These Days"
Whilst busy writing new music for her forthcoming sophomore album, Thelma took a break to record “These Days” that soundtracks the new CBA We Can.Together. Campaign, which captures life as it currently is for so many Australians, highlighting a country coming together in support of one another, making the best of what is what is indeed a unique situation, while Thelma’s rendition of “These Days” adds a beautiful, poignant feel to the storyline.
Thelma comments “I was given the chance to record a song I grew up with, and as a Brissie local, I already know a couple of the Powderfinger guys so of course, I said yes. I even recorded parts of it in Ian’s (Haug, Powderfinger guitarist) studio, which made it feel even more natural.”
