Self-taught, record breaking powerhouse Tash Sultana has teamed up with funky retro-soul band Free Nationals for ‘Pretty Lady (Free Nationals Remix)’ released today via Lonely Land Records and Sony Music Entertainment Australia.
On the release, Tash says: "This is a little something that was long overdue and long awaited, some of my most respected fellow musicians and longtime friends, the Free Nationals, have remixed ‘Pretty Lady’, in true Free Nationals style. Just gonna say it, I like their version better than my own. This is all time one of the best bands in the world and I was stoked that they flipped my song with their flavour."
Jose Rios from Free Nationals adds "Tash is one of the first people we met when we started to tour in Australia, when they asked us to do a remix it really was a no brainer. When approaching this remix we stripped away the music except for the vocals, from there we re-harmonized the chords and had each free nat lay their part down to put our own feel to the track."
‘Pretty Lady’ was the first single from Tash’s sophomore album TERRA FIRMA and has amassed 40M+ global streams. The track was co-written & made by Tash with fellow ARIA winners in artist Matt Corby and producer Dann Hume (Courtney Barnett, Amy Shark) in Tash’s home studio. The trio also worked their magic on ‘Crop Circles’, ‘Beyond the Pine’ and ‘Greed’. TERRA FIRMA debuted at #1 on the Australian Album Chart, #3 on the Switzerland Album Chart and #7 on the German Album chart and is currently nominated for Best Soul/R&B Release at this year’s ARIA Awards. The album saw Tash in full flight as they recorded, engineered, performed, arranged, and produced the album themselves.
Tash Sultana, the gender fluid multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, producer and engineer, has been dubbed one of the hardest working music exports in Australia. From a viral bedroom recording of ‘Jungle’ (2X ARIA Platinum) and street-stopping busking performances in Melbourne, to setting attendance records on non-stop, sold out global tours, Tash’s accolades rush in faster than there is time to count them. Some numbers that we can count on is the 1 billion global streams Tash has amassed, as well as touring over 20 countries with over 500,000 tickets sold globally. Incredibly, Tash sold out three O2 Brixton Academy London shows prior to the release of her debut album.
Earlier this year, Tash was the first Australian artist to have a custom map inside Fortnite, joining a growing global movement where music and gaming worlds collide. Based on TERRA FIRMA’s stunning cover art, originally designed by Pat Fox, the map allowed Fortnite players to explore Tash’s iconic visual world with ‘easter eggs’ and the opportunity for fans to win V-Bucks by sharing themselves inside the map.
