Last month, Dan Sultan dropped brand new music – ‘Magnetic’ – obviously titled after the excessive, unstoppable force, that is similar to the power placed over listeners with this incredibly catchy, undeniably likable tune. A stirring string section and trickling piano keys with soul stricken vocals finds Sultan heading in a new soul-pop direction.
Today, the video for ‘Magnetic’ was released. The clip features stop motion animation courtesy of the Melbourne-based film and animation studio Dropbear, which took two months using over 60 individual 3D printed pieces and 2700 images.
“It’s about having too much of a good thing,” Sultan explains of the song. “It’s about excess, basically, in all its forms. But it’s also about getting older, and about being more comfortable in my own skin.”
Surrounding the vocal feature on the release of the anti-Australia Day anthem ‘January 26th‘ with A.B Orginal, Sultan has been gearing up for his next record, slated to be released in early twenty-seventeen.
In the meantime, catch Sultan on a stage near you this November, sharing ‘Magnetic’ in Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney or Fremantle friends can find him performing at Fremantle Festival in November. Joining Sultan on tour will be Caiti Baker, and Morgan Bain, both killer vocalists riding that soul train.
