Dan Sultan is back with a new single ‘Killer (feat Camp Cope)’. This song is off his EP Killer Under a Blood Moon out next Friday via AntiFragile Music. There are many collab’s with Aussie artists. Dan Sultan has a knack of making soulful music. ‘Killer’ is definitely an example of this. Georgia Maq from Camp Cope adds depth to ‘Killer’ and sings words of wisdom. Listen below and enjoy Dan’s smooth vocals, as much as I did I hope!
Killer Under a Blood Moon info:
Recorded over the course of four days in a timber-clad studio set in the sweeping Macedon Ranges, northwest of Melbourne in his native Australia, Dan Sultan arrived with his guitar each morning not knowing how the selected tracks from his ARIA Award-nominated fourth album, Killer ( Spotify ), would be reinterpreted by the brightest names in Australian music: A.B. Original, Camp Cope, Meg Mac, and Gang Of Youths frontman Dave Le’aupepe. Nor did Sultan want to know: the concept behind his new collaborative EP, Killer Under a Blood Moon, was to give his songs new bodies, new ways of being, and to have a good time doing it.
Sultan has been a singular musical presence since the release of his first album, 2006’s Homemade Biscuits, straddling genres and celebrating the diversity of his audiences. All the while, he’s also become one of the Australia’s most revered songwriters. His 2014 album Blackbird was certified Gold, and just months after it debuted in the top five of the ARIA Albums Chart, Killer was nominated for Best Rock Album and Best Independent Release at the 2017 ARIA Awards. Sultan was also nominated for Best Male Artist, not for the first time.

Killer Under a Blood Moon, recorded at Red Moon Studios with producer Jan Skubiszewski, is testament to the respect Sultan garners in his peers. It also speaks to a growing camaraderie amongst those musicians unafraid to forge new cultural ground and to challenge the status quo, onstage and off. While Sultan counts A.B. Original, Camp Cope and Le’aupepe as close friends – “There are some people you meet and just go, ‘Yep, we’re brothers’,” he says of the Gang Of Youths singer – Meg Mac was less familiar. The pair had previously met backstage at festivals and in airport lounges, and Sultan was a fan, asking Mac to lend her sleek swagger to “Reaction.” The EP rounds off with two glam-bent bonus tracks, “Coming Back” and “Pitchfork,” both offcuts from Killer. Produced by Skubiszewski, like the four songs they join on Killer Under a Blood Moon, they’ve also been given a new lease on life.
