Birds of Tokyo will launch their new album, ‘Human Design’ tomorrow night as part of a unique TV concert called “Music From The Home Front – For The Fight Against Covid-19”.The event will air live from 7.30pm AEST on the Nine Network and they will join artists such as Paul Kelly, Missy Higgins, Jimmy Barnes, Courtney Barnett, and Kevin Parker from Tame Impala.
The band’s original plan was to premiere their album next weekend at concerts with the West Australian Symphony Orchestra but due to current Covid-19 restrictions those dates have been moved to January. However, appropriately for an album that’s all about overcoming adversity, WASO and Birds Of Tokyo will now collaborate to create a unique version of the band’s hit single “Unbreakable” for tomorrow’s TV telecast.
“Unbreakable” joins “Good Lord”, “The Greatest Mistakes” and “Two Of Us” as one of the four previous hits that feature on “Human Design” and today the band lift the covers off the lyric video for their next single, “Dive” – view HERE. This thematically linked collection of music was inspired by a tumultuous period in the personal life of frontman, Ian Kenny so it’s oddly apt that it should be released in such challenging times.
