Acclaimed Australia singer-songwriter, Xavier Rudd announces his forthcoming EP Freedom Sessions, out March 29th via Salt.X Records / Virgin Music Group. Accompanying the announce is the new two-part single ‘World Order’.

On the release, Xavier says: “My first EP release in 25 years, ‘Freedom Sessions’ was created during a particularly unique period of time … and is a celebration of the blessing of ‘freedom’ – a simple state of being that we all should have the right to exist in.

The track ‘World order’ is a journey that explores the two parts or the yin and yang that is in everything and manifests within us so often. As a sensitive species of the planet that has strayed far from our original form and connection to our natural place on it, we are all often trying to find our way home to that place of complete resolve within. Due to the world order that has been inflicted on the planet and ourselves over the centuries we find ourselves negotiating the battles of generational trauma and conditioning that lingers in our hearts and minds. Such is life…. some days we have to scramble uphill with a heavy load and some days we feel like we can fly.”

Freedom Sessions will feature Xavier’s 2023 single releases; ‘High Times’, ‘Road Trippin’’ and ‘Free the People’, alongside a new single ‘Moments’ which will be unveiled on EP release.

This year will see Xavier touring the most intricate solo show of his career so far, kicking off in South Africa this week, where he will play ‘World Order’ live for the first time at three special headline shows. Immediately following are a sold-out Fremantle Prison show supported by his son’s new band Calypso Cora, and two headline SummerSalt Festival performances in WA in March. He recently announced a massive North American tour starting in May – his first US and Canadian run in over 5-years – and has another huge European summer festival tour planned in July and August. Bali, Fiji and more Australian shows are also on the calendar for 2024.
