Australian singer songwriter Ziggy Alberts has teamed up with Canadian Singer-Songwriter Donovan Woods on his new single ‘The Sun and the Sea’. The track is powerful, yet beautifully melodic with a dreamy rhythm and deep harmonious vocals. What started as a genuine interest in each other’s music, turned into this collaborative release from two independent artists, both of whom co-founded their respective independent record labels. Ziggy says that
“We actually got talking because I put one of Donovan’s songs on a personal playlist of mine – and I proceeded to slide into his DM’S after he left a comment. Everything about this collaboration has been so natural… From the first time I heard him sing “we want to be famous”, I was blown away; it felt that this was how the song was meant to be all along.”
“When he sent me this song and the line “We’re still figuring out…” was right there in it, I felt like I understood the sentiment. It was a joy to work with him on it. I love the sparseness and directness of it. It makes me feel the way Ziggy’s songs make me feel, so I’m into it.”
‘The Sun and the Sea’ music video, directed by Hype Republic’s Josh Weir, is a cleverly crafted piece of cinematic work that translates the feeling of carrying the ‘weight of the world’s’ struggles whilst yearning for a deeper understanding and connection to our natural surroundings and to ourselves. It is a captivating piece, reflecting one of the tracks’ many sentiments.
Happily for us, the track also celebrates Ziggy’s newly announced album, ‘Dancing in the Dark’ coming November 2022.
The Sun and the Sea is available now on Common Folk Records.
