PREMIERE: Nathan Cavaleri Dives Deep Into His Own Mind With ‘Before You Check Out’

Nathan Cavaleri has lived a thousand lives (child actor, signed to Michael Jackson’s record label, cancer survivor) and he hasn’t even hit 40 years old. Doing all he’s done can take an impact on your mental health, and he takes an introspective look at his own with new single ‘Before You Check Out’.

With delicate plucks and the warm wave of brass that builds up towards the end, the song is immediately evocative and meditative, imploring you to sink in and listen.

“I strongly identified with what he went through and wished I had reached out to him,” Cavaleri said of the song, which was written after a cousin of his passed away after experiencing major mental health issues.

“Having battled my own demons, I wondered whether my experience would have helped. I contemplated what I’d share if time could show mercy. I would share how our thoughts and beliefs colourise our experience and skew our perception of the world, giving us a false sense of reality – a notion that helped me to expose the root of many of my physical and mental health issues that were mistakenly believed to be out of my control.”

The song is taken from Cavaleri’s new album Demons which is set for release on Friday, 6th August. He is also set to tour the album throughout New South Wales and Victoria later this year and will appear an episode of Australian Story, set to air in early August.
