Missy Higgins Performs ‘Steer’ in Rungutjirpa (Simpson’s Gap), Mparntwe (Alice Springs) for ABC’s 90th Bday Celebration

Thanks to everyone who tuned in to my performance of Steer for ‘ABC 90 Celebrate’ the other week! Rungutjirpa (Simpson’s Gap) in Mparntwe (Alice Springs) would have to be the most epic, magical location I’ve ever performed in. Apologies to all the old tourists we had to keep nudging out if the way, haha. You can watch the full performance on YouTube, and you can still see the whole ABC 90 Celebrate on ABC TV + iview catch-up, with heaps of other incredible one-off performances all round Australia. ❤️

MISSY TO FEATURE IN ABC’S 90TH BIRTHDAY TELECAST THIS THURSDAY

Missy Higgins will feature in the ABC’s 90th Birthday Telecast this Thursday evening at 8pm with a special performance from the breathtaking Rungutjirpa (Simpson’s Gap). Her appearance alongside an Australian Arts and Culture ‘who’s who’, extends a long association with the national public broadcaster, stretching back to winning Triple J Unearthed 20 years ago while she was still at high school.

More recently Missy composed and sang for both series of the ABC’s award winning political drama, “Total Control”.  The program has attracted worldwide acclaim with The Wall Street Journal applauding “…its biting vision of the prevailing codes, and what passes for right and wrong in political society.” Stuff NZ said: “Total Control offers a scathing examination of Australian politics [and] a clarion call for social justice” and said the music was “a magnificent showcase for the songwriting and singing skills of Missy Higgins”.

This week Missy will release the final track from that celebrated collaboration – a song of empowerment called “I Take It Back” drawn from her “Total Control” mini-album. That ARIA Top 3 hit was inspired by musical fragments Missy initially pieced together to fit certain scenes in the TV show. What started as brief instrumentals gradually grew lyrics and some expanded into full songs across 2020 and 2021 as the show’s themes reverberated publicly in the Grace Tame and Brittany Higgins cases. Missy’s unusually deep association with the show included her fierce lead single “Edge Of Something” which featured as the main promo for Season Two and was premiered live as part of the ABC’s 2022 New Year’s Eve telecast from the Sydney Opera House.

“This song is about reclaiming your story, identity and power as a woman. It draws on the history of women being forced into a cultural narrative that diminishes their power. It creates space for all that fury, resentment and uncomfortable emotion to finally rise to the surface. But it’s also a celebration of everything we have inside us and everything we can achieve once we’ve harnessed this power.” Says Missy of the track.

MISSY HIGGINS RELEASES NEW MINI-ALBUM ‘TOTAL CONTROL’ OUT TODAY

Missy Higgins today releases her new mini-album “Total Control” – listen here.

The songs from this new mini-album pick up themes of exploitation and female empowerment that run through “Total Control” and which also dominated real world headlines last year as a string of abuse allegations emerging from Parliament House.

Appearing on the TV show “Q&A” late last year, Missy noted that the strong calls for change by leading voices like Brittany Higgins and Australian Of The Year Grace Tame had been a further inspiration for new songs like “Watch Out” and “I Take It Back”.

The latest single to be lifted from “Total Control” is “The Collector” which is described as Missy as “a raw rollicking, stomping sing-along with unashamed venom. It’s the Kill-Bill-esque revenge fantasy of a woman who NEVER forgets”

The “Total Control” mini-album was inspired initially by musical fragments Missy pieced together to fit certain scenes in the ABC’s Total Control soundtrack. What started as brief instrumentals gradually grew lyrics and some expanded into full songs across 2020 and 2021. Missy’s unusually deep association with the show included lead single “Edge Of Something” which featured as the main promo for Season Two.

The program has attracted worldwide acclaim with The Wall Street Journal applauding “…its biting vision of the prevailing codes, and what passes for right and wrong in political society.” Stuff NZ said: “Total Control offers a scathing examination of Australian politics [and] a clarion call for social justice” and said the music was “a magnificent showcase for the songwriting and singing skills of Missy Higgins”.

Over coming months Missy Higgins will headline two separate touring festivals at once – the beachy “Summersalt” and a new all female event called “Wildflower”. The beloved singer/songwriter will also play gigs in cities from Darwin to Torquay, from Birdsville to Broken Hill.

Aptly enough Missy ushered in 2022 with a pre-fireworks performance of the title track on ABCTV’s New Year’s Eve extravaganza – literally starting this busy year with a bang.

“Like lots of people I guess I’m trying to make up for lost time”, Missy explains. “The last two years made me realise how much I missed playing music for people so I want to get out there and do it while we all can. I’m not taking anything for granted anymore.”
