Daniel Johns is ready. 8 years after his last new music. Finally ready.
His first step back is "Aerial Love"; an airy piece of modern pop he created with Lorde and Broods collaborator, Joel Little. The opening lines tell the story. Synthetic but sensual, the song is in a different sonic universe from Daniel's other work. And yet the unexpected is exactly what people should expect from this musical chameleon.
"I try not to look backwards," he says. "Too many ghosts."
He continues to be a moving target and now he's moving on.
From 1995 through 2010 Daniel enjoyed five consecutive #1's with his band Silverchair. They won more ARIA Awards than any other artist in history and sold over six million albums. Daniel became the only person to be voted APRA's "Songwriter Of The Year" three times. But what really mattered was his deserved reputation for constant artistic reinvention. From heavy grunge through dark orchestral stylings to baroque pop and then the epic rock of "Straight Lines" - Daniel lead his band on a sprawling voyage of discovery matched by few, if any, Australian artists.
