Tim Minchin release fourth single, ‘Airport Piano’ ahead of album, Apart Together
Ahead of his debut album APART TOGETHER, set for release through BMG Australia on November 20, Tim Minchin has revealed his fourth single ‘Airport Piano’. Imbued with his trademark biting social commentary, the track takes a more upbeat direction than Tim’s other singles, which include acclaimed debut single ‘Leaving LA’ and album title track ‘Apart Together’.
“Airport Piano is almost definitely the funkiest tribute to midlife crises and the emptiness of acquisition ever recorded in the antipodes,” said Minchin. “It walks the line between extremely cool and extremely uncool with barely a teeter.”
Minchin’s first single of 2020, ‘Leaving LA’ was added to rotation on Double J, and acclaimed by NME Australia, Newstalk ZB, Music Feeds, The Music and more. His second single was equally well-received; ‘I’ll Take Lonely Tonight’ was praised by Rolling Stone, NME Australia, RNZ, The Music and Scenestr.
His most recent single, and album title track, ‘Apart Together’, was inspired by a story on LA radio station KCRW about an elderly couple in their mobile home who died of hypothermia in each other’s arms. The song tenderly teases out the improbable beauty of such an outcome, framing it in an exquisitely pensive setting.
