Harts has announced two intimate east coast shows to celebrate the release of his new single ‘Twenty Somethin’. Listen to the new track below.
The Indian-born, Melbourne-raised musician Darren Harts, known mononymously by his last name, will play Melbourne’s Northcote Social Club and Sydney’s Lansdowne Hotel in June this year.
‘Twenty Somethin’ was released to coincide with his performance at the opening ceremony of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup on Friday (February 21) in Sydney. You can watch him perform the 1977 Supercharge hit ‘You’ve Gotta Get Up and Dance’ from 7:01 onwards in the below clip.
‘Twenty Somethin’ was produced, mixed and mastered by Harts in his Melbourne studio. He described the song in a press release as “an accumulation of my feelings heading into the new year of 2020, the next decade of ’20s and the final years of my 20’s. An expression of mixed feelings approaching this next chapter”.
Last year, Harts played guitar on the viral sensation that was Denzel Curry’s Like a Version cover of ‘Bulls On Parade’. This year, he will continue his ‘Harts Plays Hendrix’ national tour, performing songs from across legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix’s back catalogue including a stop at Byron Bay’s Bluesfest. The dates are below, with tickets available via Harts’ site.
