Just a quick email to let you know what Missy is up to at the moment.
For starters, “The Sound Of White” went back to #1 on this week’s Australian album chart which is the third time it’s reclaimed the top spot. Congrat’s to Missy and thanks to everyone who has helped make this happen!
Missy’s album will be released in the US and UK on June 7 and 13 respectively so she’s currently overseas in the leadup to those dates. Her current UK tour is largely sold out although limited tickets remain for a couple of dates. Please check out the “tours” page for more info.
North American fans can see Missy on NBC’s “Last Call With Carson Daly” on June 7. She is then touring with Amos Lee on the West Coast and will step out elsewhere in the US with Howie Day and Gavin Degraw in July (keep an eye on “Tours” for more info).
Missy will also do her first ever Canadian show on July 19 at The Horseshoe.
Meanwhile, fans who would like to pre-order the US version of “The Sound Of White” can get an auotgraphed copy while stocks last from Warner Brothers Records
Please note that the US tracklisting is slightly different from the Australian one. “Casualty” has been replaced by “Unbroken” and the order has been shuffled a little. “Unbroken” will soon be made available digitally and it will also feature on the B side of her next local single just so local fans don’t miss out.
In other Missy news, she has had two songs (“Scar” and “Ten Days”) make the final five for the APRA “Song Of The Year” which will be announced in Sydney next week. This prestigious award acknowledges excellence in songwriting and was won last year by John Butler. Keep an eye on www.www.missyhiggins.com for the results!
Lastly, in reply to all the emails asking about Australian tour dates, plans are currently being discussed to do a handfull of shows in the second half of October. However, an announcement about these dates is still at least a month or two away so thanks for your patience!
