Amazon Music Releases MADE IN AUSTRALIA feat. Gang of Youths, The Temper Trap, Alex Cameron, Gordi & More
Today, Amazon Music is launching "Made in Australia": an Amazon Original playlist filled with exclusive, newly-recorded covers of Australian songs, reworked by a new generation of Australian artists including The Temper Trap, Gang of Youths, Betty Who, Alex Cameron, Mansionair and many more.
Subscribers to Amazon Music Unlimited can listen to these songs and more by heading to amazon.com/MadeInAustralia.
Gordi's version of Tina Arena's "Sorrento Moon (I Remember)" premiered earlier this month at Stereogum, who called the song a "heartflelt, slinking anthem," while NYLON premiered Betty Who's cover of Kylie Minogue's "Come Into My World," saying "It's an Australian pop star overload that's sure to leave the kids shook."
Premiering for the first time today is Japanese Wallpaper's "Don't Dream It's Over" feat. Georgia Smith, Mansionair's "This Boys In Love," and many more.
"[Tina Arena's] Don't Ask album was played time and time again in my house when I was growing up," explains Sophie Peyton. "A couple of years ago I went with my family to Sorrento for the weekend and we played 'Sorrento Moon' until I was sure I'd never be able to listen to it again. Yet here we are."
"I jumped at the chance to sing Kylie. It's such a sexy and fun song," explains Who. "I wanted to try something a little more intimate."
Over the last few years, hundreds of exclusive songs and numerous albums have been released as Amazon Originals, featuring both emerging and established artists spanning diverse genres like pop, indie, country, Americana, roots, blues, alt-rock, and more. All are available to stream and purchase exclusively from Amazon Music.
