Eight years after Julia Stone’s last solo record, Sixty Summers arrived in 2021 as a powerful rebirth for one of Australia’s most prolific artists.
Emerging from the wildernesses of folk and indie-rock, with Sixty Summers, Stone dove headfirst into the cosmopolitan, hedonistic world of late-night, moonlit pop. She brought the grit and glitter of the city, with all its attendant joys, dangers, romances and risks. Reimagined, reborn and reinvigorated, this new era for Julia Stone replaces dirt underfoot with wet pavements and sticky dance floors; trades blue skies for red lights and red lips.
This is Stone at her truest, brightest self, a revered icon finally sharing her long, secret love affair with this vibrant and complex genre. Step into Julia Stone’s brand new world.
