Acclaimed vocalist Anthony Callea is set to release his sixth album, Backbone on September 16th through Sony Music Entertainment Australia.
It is the next chapter in an enormously successful career, which launched in 2004 with his multi-platinum self-titled album release, and delivered one-time Highest Selling Australian Single, four-times Platinum The Prayer.
Currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on Backbone, Callea has today revealed his excitement at releasing an album of songs with enormous personal connection.
"I'm so fortunate that Denis Handlin and Sony Music have embraced my idea of Backbone and allowed me to make this exciting album with them. We have been in production for the past 3 weeks and will wrap up the recording process this week at the iconic SING SING Studios.
"In this day and age, recording every instrument absolutely live and real without any sequenced sounds is rare and exciting! I am so proud that we have been able to do this and I have been a part of the recording process every step of the way. With Backbone, we have explored songs that we all know and love - and we've been able to get to the core of these songs, their lyrics and melody, bringing them to the surface with organic and creative musical instrumentation and vocal delivery. I wrote title track Backbone when I was in Los Angeles, and it sums up the essence of this album. It's been an absolute joy putting Backbone together with James and my musicians, and I can't wait to share it with everyone and bring it to life in September."
Backbone has been produced by James Roche, with A&R Ross Fraser at the helm.
To celebrate the release of Backbone, Anthony will tour the country, with a selection of dates just announced and more to come.
