Melbourne songstress Olympia has shared the details of her of her debut album, which will be supported by a string of shows around the country. Accompanying the album news, she has also shared a new single Smoke Signals.
Dubbed Self Talk, the album will feature previously released singles Honey, This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things and Tourists.
The new track also comes with a video, which Olympia explains “Is about someone’s internal and unseen chaos, inspired in part by Japanese reality TV show Sweepstakes Life. A contestant (Nasabi) was locked naked in an apartment stocked only with Sweepstakes magazines. Millions tuned in daily to watch his declining mental state and increasingly emaciated frame.”
Self Talk will be released on April 29 through EMI.
Olympia’s seven date tour will kick off on May 26 in Sydney, and tickets for all shows are on sale now.
