First pressing on limited edition 10″ neon orange vinyl!
Following her long-awaited, striking May single ‘Backseat Of My Mind’, beloved Brisbane-based singer-songwriter Thelma Plum is proud to announce her brand new EP, Meanjin!
Adding to the already abundant news is a new track ‘When It Rains It Pours’ – one of Meanjin’s six songs from the heart, about the heartland, and a breathtaking, nostalgic addition to the Gamilaraay artist’s flourishing catalogue. The announcements come after the brilliant new single ‘Backseat Of My Mind’, which marked Thelma’s first original release since her acclaimed ARIA-winning debut album Better In Blak in 2019.
Written as a self-described “nostalgic feeling ‘driving’ song”, the single swiftly took out the number one most played spot on both triple j and 4ZZZ, and landed Thelma her first commercial radio additions on Brisbane’s B105, plus Late Nights on both Hit Network and NOVA, amongst coverage from Refinery 29, The Guardian, NME, Music Feeds, and more. ‘Backseat Of My Mind’ also heralded Thelma’s return to the live stage, revisiting previous COVID-affected tour dates on her Making It Up To You Tour, before joining Paul Kelly for a special run of performances at the Sydney Opera House for VIVID Live. With a run of dates in support of Vance Joy set to follow Thelma’s own The Meanjin Tour later this year, Thelma Plum’s homecoming has well and truly arrived.
While ‘Backseat Of My Mind’ was Thelma’s first new original music since the record, the celebrated creative has far from receded from the public eye. Thelma and her music have been involved in high profile campaigns for White Shirt Day and a number of household brands; for Netflix’s ‘Back To The Outback’ animated feature film (starring Tim Minchin and Eric Bana), as well as appearing on the cover of the re-launch of InStyle Magazine Australia and most recently digital beauty magazine Gritty Pretty.
