So yesterday we brought you Tim’s lovely new ‘Lullaby’ performed with part of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, which aired on Ben Elton’s Live from Planet Earth.

Well the next day, Tim performed a cover of the Crowded House classic ‘Better Be Home Soon’, on Adam Hills in Gordon St Tonight on ABC1, so it seems only fair that we share that performance with you too:

Tim’s new single, a studio version of his nerdy pop song ‘The Fence‘, is now on iTunes. It tackles how things are not always as simple as we might first think and is typically clever and catchy. If you are in the UK you can find it here and if you are in Australia go here. However, as it is now available worldwide you could simply search your iTunes Store and don’t forget, if you wish, you can be among the first to review it on there.

This is a unique studio recording with a band, rather than how you might have heard it, or will hear it, with an orchestra. Finally a song short enough for radio play too, so let’s start the ball rolling and request it.

Tim says:
“Aussies, if you want to hear the song on Triple J (and do me a favour), you can request it to be played on Rosie Beaton’s Super Request in the following ways:

Radio playfulness.

Time for a Lullaby

by Linzy 16th Feb | 54 comments

If you missed Tim performing on Ben Elton’s Live from Planet Earth on Monday you probably fall into one of three categories:

  1. You don’t live in Australia.
  2. You didn’t know it was on.
  3. You turned off halfway through.

Have no fear though, we can tell you that he performed a rendition of a new song ‘Lullaby’ with part of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra (and he didn’t screw up)! We can go a step further than that as well and provide you with the video so you can see and hear it for yourselves! A note though, if you are trying to stay spoiler free for the new show, you’d best not watch this.

And if that hasn’t made you want to buy tickets for the rest of the UK orchestra shows and the few Australian orchestra shows that still have tickets available, then I don’t know what will!

Have you missed seeing Tim on your TV? You’re gonna love this week then!

Tomorrow, Tim will be gracing Ben Elton’s Live from Planet Earth. This will go out on nine at 9:30pm, and as the title suggests, it’ll be broadcast live! The show may not have got off to the best start last week, but surely it’s worth tuning in just to see if Tim slips up or not!

The following day, Wednesday, he’ll be on Adam Hills In Gordon St Tonight. You’ll need to tune your tellybox into ABC1 at 8:30pm to see it. He”l be on with the supermodel and actress Megan Gale and the director Peter Weir. Neon Trees will also be performing.

You’ll be watching both shows right? Or at the very least be recording them to watch later, yes? Good.

Tim’s going to Boston, Massachusetts on Saturday 4th June 2011. He’ll be performing at the Wilbur Theatre at 7pm for your pleasure.

Tickets go Onsale to the General Public on Friday, 11th February 2011 at 12 noon EST and are available from Ticketmaster.

Pst! read on…

If you want to take direct action: there’s a PRESALE on right now, via the same link and the password is: WT9.
(Oh and Angry Feeters knew about this even earlier…just saying)

The show will be an exciting blend of brand new songs with a few well loved classics. Tim will be joined on stage by his grand piano, iconic dance moves, wildly teased hair, gently calmed eyebrows, infeasibly skinny jeans, natural aplomb and his enormous…sense of occasion.

How can you resist?
