Hein Cooper

Hein Cooper

Joining James Morrison at all Australian dates is Hein Cooper, whose second album Underneath It All dropped just last week. Following the 2016 release of his acclaimed debut The Art of Escape, featuring breakout single ‘Rusty’, the solitude and daily routine of traveling and touring solo got to him. Writing new music was the only way through this daily battle, and the outcome was Underneath It All. Singles ‘Hear My Voice’ (co-produced by Will Hicks (Ed Sheeran, James Hersey)) and ‘Like That’ are shining examples of Cooper’s diverse and emotive songwriting, and are sure to wow crowds around Australia.


Alae

Alae

Supporting James Morrison’s Auckland show, emerging New Zealand band Alae will open up proceedings armed with a sophisticated brand of folk-inspired indie pop. Originally comprised of Alex Farrell-Davey and Allister Meffan, they self-funded the release of their self-titled debut EP in 2016. With the addition of Jayden Lee and Marika Hodgson, they released new album Henry St in October of last year, featuring hit singles ‘Too Strung Up’ and ‘Stone Cold’. It hit #2 on the iTunes album charts, #1 on the iTunes alternative album charts, and #5 on the New Zealand album charts. Their latest single is called ‘Help You Now’.

ANNOUNCES AU & NZ DATES ON THE YOU’RE STRONGER THAN YOU KNOW TOUR

WITH SPECIAL GUESTS HEIN COOPER (AU) & ALAE (NZ)

Frontier Touring are thrilled to announce iconic British singer-songwriter James Morrison will be touching down in Australia and New Zealand in September 2019 for the You’re Stronger Than You Know Tour, armed with his fifth studio album, You’re Stronger Than You Know, released in March through Warner Music Australia/ADA.

Morrison will kick off the tour in Melbourne on Tuesday 17 September before heading to Thirroul, Sydney, Brisbane and the Gold Coast, with a final show in Auckland on Tuesday 24 September. Special guests Hein Cooper and Alae will join Morrison in Australia and New Zealand respectively.

Featuring massive tunes ‘My Love Goes On (feat. Joss Stone)’ and ‘Glorious’, You’re Stronger Than You Know is the album Morrison always wanted to make. With nods to Van Morrison, Otis Redding, The Band, and Dusty Springfield, James dishes up a set of tunes inspired by classic soul, Stax and Motown, filtered through a distinctly British lens.

Warm and positive, raw and honest, the songs on the record were born from one of the darkest periods in Morrison’s life. The pressure to follow up 2015’s Higher Than Here strongly, coupled with an extended rough patch in his long-term relationship, was enough to knock him for a serious loop. From this tough time, however, came some of his best songs yet. Fighting through it all to hold onto love and show appreciation for his wife, tackling his tumultuous upbringing and parental relationships, and crafting messages of hope and resilience for his own children reignited the creative spark, delivering an unforgettable set of tunes.

“I didn’t know that I was going to come out of it,” he admits. “I was dropped from my label and my personal life went to shit. I’ve had to start again and it’s been hard, but I’m stronger and much more positive for having gone through that.”

In Australia, James Morrison boasts two platinum albums for Undiscovered and The Awakening, with ‘I Won’t Let You Go’ quadruple platinum and ‘You Give Me Something’ also platinum. One of the most successful UK singer-songwriters of his era, he also has two UK #1 albums, five UK Top 10 singles, a BRIT Award, and over 7 million record sales. His breakthrough hits include the classic ‘You Give Me Something’, ‘Wonderful World’ and the unforgettable Nelly Furtado collab ‘Broken Strings’.
