Tim’s long-awaited debut album ‘Apart Together’, recorded over the past two years since he moved back to Sydney, will be out on the 20th November. A track of the same name, the third single, is available now.

The gatefold vinyl features a 24-page booklet with illustrated lyrics, a poster, bespoke artwork and comes in two variants; translucent red and transparent ultra-clear with opaque red.

See below for the lyrics and the tracklist.

Tim: “The title track of my album, ‘Apart Together’ was going to be called “Wedding Dance”, because in my head, that’s what it is. When that insanely lovely Mat Jodrell trumpet eases in, I always picture couples dancing. I mean, let’s be honest, you’d have to be a little bit of a weirdo to actually have it as your wedding dance, but if I’ve learned one thing from my years of making stuff, it’s this: there are always weirdos. And they are always my kinda people.”

**Apart Together** (Lyrics)

KCRW
On the way to a show
Heard the story of an elderly couple
Found dead in their mobile home
They’d been there a month they say
Seemed to be no decay
I guess the upside of freezing to death
Is that you tend to stay that way
Locked in each other’s arms
Eyes closed and faces calm
They may have lain there ‘til spring
If it weren’t for the ping of their smoke alarm
God sure works in mysterious ways
Died of power bills left unpaid
Found by a neighbour who heard the ping
Dropped around offering
Double As

I think this could last forever
Girl let’s fall apart together

I can handle the entropy
If you promise to stay with me
I give you my heart knowing things fall apart
Praying you will decay with me

Locked in each other’s arms
Eyes closed and faces calm
In the morning a new life will dawn
So maybe don’t set the alarm

Baby I think this could last forever
Girl let’s fall apart together
Girl let’s fall apart together

I just listened to apart together for the first time and it’s indescribable but deeply touching. Thank you for making a 70+ year old gal alive.

“I mean, let’s be honest, you’d have to be a little bit of a weirdo to actually have it as your wedding dance, but if I’ve learned one thing from my years of making stuff, it’s this: there are always weirdos. And they are always my kinda people” Choosing to take this as a compliment, hehe.

Though having just watched the rather beautiful rendition of ‘Moment of Bliss’ on Instagram it too would make a rather special first dance song.

Looking forward to hearing the album in it’s entirety. Have just listened to all 3 singles together and they compliment each other so nicely, I am more excited than ever to hear them nestled in amongst all the other tracks on the album!

Hi!

I’ve been waiting for this Album since I saw “Back” in april 2019. Since then, that concert has been my “happy place” to think back to, given the current situation.

I pre-ordered the #3 clear vinyl set – is there any chance at all that it would be possible to have it autographed. Regardles, I have been waiting for a TIm Minchin vinyl for so many years, I’m so excited for this release.

Good luck with the launch :)
