Australian singer-songwriter, Xavier Rudd has announced he'll be releasing his ninth studio album, Storm Boy, on the May 25 this year. Featuring his latest single, Walk Away, that has taken storm on the charts and gives fans a delicious taste of what to expect on the upcoming album.
Its been six years since his last solo release, the ARIA #2 and Gold Certified Spirit Bird; Storm Boy is the story that has tracked his journey since his last release. “I’m literally just singing about the things that are going on around me,” Rudd says, on his idea that writing music and living his life are one in the same. He adventures into environmental work, veganism, spiritualism, surfing and exploring new corners of his beloved homeland.
