Australia’s beloved musical treasure, Marcia Hines (AM), has announced the release of her greatest hits STILL SHINING: The 50th Anniversary Ultimate Collection, which is out now through ABC Music.

The album contains 20 career defining tracks (22 Digital which include the two brand new tracks), featuring ‘Fire and Rain’, ‘From The Inside’, ‘You’, ‘Something’s Missing (In My Life)’ plus two brand new songs ‘Last One Standing’ and ‘Hard To Breathe’ both written and recorded by Michael Fatkin. The ‘Last One Standing’ is Marcia’s latest single.

Australian Musician editor Greg Phillips caught up with the legendary Marcia Hines via a zoom chat to discuss the new album and her incredible career.

Fast becoming a household name and going on to release 22 albums, selling 2.6 million copies, Marcia has garnered countless chart-topping singles and multi-platinum records globally. She is an inspiration to women and Australians everywhere, constantly reinventing herself and setting industry benchmarks, after moving from Boston Massachusetts to Sydney at just 16 years old to star in the Australian production of Hair.

Marcia was Australian Idol’s favourite judge for the show’s seven consecutive years and was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2007. She received the Order of Australia (AM) in 2009 for her services to the Australian Entertainment Industry as a performer, judge, and mentor, and to the community through a range of charitable organisations.

Marcia is touring for the rest of 2023, promoting the album and each performance will encapsulate her extraordinary recording career. STILL SHINING – The 50th Anniversary Concert tour will commence in July. Her return to regional centres across Australia is an acknowledgement of the importance of these cities and towns to her journey. These years of touring were so significant in the establishment of her career and her relationship with Australian audiences.

STILL SHINING: The 50th Anniversary Ultimate Collection is stunning celebration of songs, from a timeless artist, who has woven her magic and spirit into the hearts of countless Australians. This album will take you on a musical journey and remind you why Marcia is a shining star.
