Tyrone Noonan – Utopia?

Event Description

The new album Utopia? traverses genres and influences, with pop gems sitting comfortably alongside beautiful ballads, and all carrying a powerful message as Ty expertly weaves between personal and socio‐political themes.

Tyrone says of the inspiration behind the record: “I’m aiming to create a journey through the myriad of human emotions, both on a personal and a global level, that we are all facing right now”.

But that doesn’t mean it’s a gloomy record: “This is a record for those yearning for a better path; something I think so many people on this planet agree with. Things are evolving so quickly, but amongst the 24 hour news cycle, there’s not enough balance between the negative and positive. This album tries to bridge that balance.”

The record features co‐writes with the likes of the late Grant (G.W.) McLennan (of The Go‐Betweens, and including his last vocal recording), Dan Rosen (ARIA CEO), Donna Dyson and rising NT star Colin Lillie.
