Hot on the heels of her #1 single “Steer”, Missy’s new single – the epic ballad “Where I Stood” will hit Australian airwaves on Monday June 25th.
The song is the opening track on her chart topping second album “On A Clear Night” which is still in the national top 5 over a month after its release and is already certified double platinum.
The video clip for “Where I Stood” will be premiered later that week and will be posted on Missy’s MySpace page. It’s being directed by prominent Australian filmmakers Paul Goldman and Alice Bell who created the movie “Suburban Mayhem” and, more recently, the video for Silverchair’s hit single “Straight Lines”.
Missy recently completed a sold out Australian tour but she has just announced an extra handful of shows in Geelong, Ballarat and Bendigo.
Tickets for these shows will go on sale at 9am on Friday June 22nd.
See the tours page for details.
