After teaming up with The Veronicas for triple j’s Like A Version, Australian melodician Allday will be hitting the road in support of his third album Starry Night Over the Phone. Released on 12 July, the 11-track album was recorded in Los Angeles and features a roll-call of Australian talent. That talent includes The Veronicas, on board again for ‘Restless’; Japanese Wallpaper on ‘Don’t Wanna Push You Away Anymore’; and Lonelyspeck on ‘See You When I See You’. Keeping to the Antipodean theme, the album was executive-produced by Simon Lam.
Joining Allday on tour will be great friend and collaborator Mallrat, singer-songwriter E^ST and musician-on-the-rise JXN.
It’s been a busy few years for the Adelaide-raised, now LA-based artist, his debut album Startup Cult came in at #3 on the ARIA Charts; and its follow-up Speeding landed a #6 debut plus an Air Award nomination. He has 3 Gold ARIA certifications for his singles ‘You Always Know the DJ’ and ‘In Motion’ ft. Japanese Wallpaper, and debut EP ‘Loners Are Cool’, and has accumulated over 80 million streams to date. A collaboration with Mallrat on her hugely successful single ‘UFO’ has racked up over 14 million streams, and came in at #70 in the triple j Hottest 100 of 2018.
