Hailing from Australia, Ziggy Albert does certainly not need an introduction, having become a staple of grass-roots, nature-focused folk music. With a whopping 7 records under his belt and worldwide media recognition, the Aussie talent approaches 2021 with a fresh new release, the alt-folk number ‘letting go’, once again showcasing his songwriting qualities and a willingness to stay on top.
Many are the milestones Alber has been collecting since his debut. After amassing more than 100 Million streams on Spotify alone, he went and collected praises from the likes of Billboard Magazine, American Songwriter, EarMilk and Clash UK. But even with a tremendously successful path behind him, Ziggy Albert looks ahead, gearing up for a new album release in March, ‘searching for freedom’.
‘letting go’ is the first single from the record, a mix of classic folk and enchanting vocal melodies with a more mature, grown-up creative outlook. Ziggy explains: “I have spent time busking and jamming this song with friends over the last few years, but it never made it onto an album until now – despite being written around the same time as ‘Runaway’. I’ve grown more and more confident over the years not to rush song releases – this record certainly seems the most fitting for this track.”
