Premiering her new song ‘Mystik’ on triple j this morning, the singer-songwriter said she’ll go on a “small hiatus” after she tours the country between November and December.
“I do this run and then the Aussie run and then I’m going to go on a little bit of a hiatus and do some different kind of stuff. I think it’s time – it’s been two years now,” before explaining that she’s considering becoming something of a “nomad” and travelling the world later on as “a normal 25, 26-year-old”.
“That could change,” she added.
Discussing ‘Mystik’, Sultana explained that the song was written over the last five weeks, and has helped her get through a difficult time in her life. It’s also the first time she’s played saxophone on a track. The song will be released this Friday, 6th October, but you can hear a snippet below. (UPDATE: Stream the full thing right here)
As for her highly anticipated debut album — which is expected in 2018 — Sultana said, “It’s coming along. It’s been busting my balls, but it’s getting there.”
