‘Talk It Out’ acts as Matt Corby’s first release since last year’s stellar Rainbow Valley, and also marks Sultana’s first collaboration released in conjunction with another artist. The track was originally written and recorded by Corby during the Rainbow Valley sessions, with Sultana adding vocals and guitar embelishments after Corby decided it didn’t fit the direction of his record. Take a listen to the soulful, groove heavy track below.
In a statement heralding the release of the single, both artists praised one another’s musical chops and their collaborative process, with Corby staking the claim that – “Tash has a giant musical beast living inside of her, so I knew she could deal with whatever I threw at her. It was amazing to collaborate with someone like that, and have her throw her musical stylings over the song”.
Sultana added that they dynamic duo “…Originally started having a jam in early 2017, then life came between making music together. This track came about because Matt didn’t include it on ‘Rainbow Valley’. He sent it to me to fill in the blanks, and it’s the first collaboration I’ve done with another artist that I’ve released. Matt is an amazing songwriter and instrumentalist. He’s also an absolutely awesome guy with a huge soul so it was a privilege to be a part of this project.”
So, ummm… Splendour In The Grass is coming up, guys… any chance you wanna give this a live debut any time soon?
‘Talk It Out’, the new single from Matt Corby and Tash Sultana, is out now via Island Records.
