It feels like this second single has been a long time coming! It’s a mammoth track, both temporally and sonically. Which is a wanky way of saying it’s bloody long and bloody loud. Defo recommend listening to it with a big ol’ set of headphones or some kick-arse speakers and the volume turned up.
The album, Apart Together, is due out later this year.
Love to y’all. txx

Ooh, look, a YouTube vid of me in a singlet. Just what the people wanted.
It’s a home-office rendition of I’ll Take Lonely Tonight, a song I wrote about not having sex. : )

The studio version comes out in about a month (it’s very cool I can’t wait woohoo etc), but I want you guys to be able to learn it and record your own versions, if you wanna, before I drop mine.

Maybe one day, somewhere, I’ll be able to get one of you lovely mofos up to play it with me.

Lyrics and Chords below.
Loads of lockdown love to you all.

Australian Hip Hop pioneer, writer and actor BRIGGS has teamed up with Tim to record ‘HOUSEFYRE’ and to film the video from the splendid isolation of their own homes.

Stream/Download: Briggs.lnk.to/HousefyrePR

Sales and streams of this song are being donated to the #FNC19Appeal here.

Briggs: “Cabin fever manifests in strange ways and while I’ve been stuck at home working on new music and practising good social distancing, the idea came to me to hit up my friend Tim Minchin to work on a fun idea. Black and red together hasn’t looked this good since the ’93 grand final.”

Tim: “I’ve been wanting to do something with Briggs for years but couldn’t work out what idea to go to him with. Then a few days ago, he sent a track over and asked if I’d wanna write a chorus for it. I think my exact words were “fuck yeah”. So much fun to make, and such a buzz to work with the Senator.”

Starring: Briggs and Tim Minchin
Director / Editor: Christiaan Van Vuuren
Graphics and VFX: Alex Gabbott
Music and Lyrics: Briggs, Tim Minchin & Trials

-Lyrics-

Da-dup da-dup oh
Come, little baby, shelter from the storm
We’re goin’ viral & the fire is warm
Keepin’ calm, carryin’ on, Scotty’s latest presser is depressin’
So we’re tuning in to this approved message from the Senator:

This short film about how Tee Ken made the extraordinary Leaving LA music video is almost more fun than the video itself. I find it absolutely fascinating and extremely cool, and I reckon you will too. Next up: a film about the making of the “making of” film. Lol

My upcoming shows in Sydney, Newcastle, Melbourne & Brisbane are being postponed. We’ve no real choice, I’m afraid.

I’m gutted for my audiences who have saved & travelled. And for my band & crew who lose work. And for the venues & promoter. And for myself, cos I HATE not delivering.

We are hustling to reschedule. The ticket agency will be emailing on Monday to confirm the postponement, & though I don’t know if we’ll have new dates by then, please know we are trying our hardest!

Lots of love. Don’t panic, wash ya hands,
And don’t take ya sniffle to your Gran’s.

Here it is! Leaving LA is the first of a handful of singles to be released ahead of the full album later this year.

Stream/Download:
timminchin.ffm.to/leavingla

I heartily suggest you watch this on a reasonable sized screen with some lovely headphones / speakers and the volume turned up to 9. My producer, Mr Daniel Denholm, has done a beautiful job with the audio, and the wondrous Tee Ken Ng has made a film unlike anything you have seen.
(UPDATE: You can now watch The Making of Leaving LA on YouTube or below).

We really hope you think it doesn’t suck.

Lyrics, and for fun there’s a Glossary, below.
