Brisbane singer-songwriter Hazlett has released a new single, ‘Easy Now Tiger’. It’s a taste of his upcoming EP, ‘Thundering Hopes’.
Hazlett, who now resides in Stockholm, teamed up with Swedish producer Freddy Alexander to create ‘Easy Now Tiger’.
“This is my ode to long-distance romance,” Hazlett said in a press statement, also noting that as something he has experienced since he relocated to Sweden.

“It’s me trying to reassure someone about all the moments that they crossed your mind but that maybe you didn’t articulate at the time,” Hazlett added. “How nervously excited you get on a flight to see them. How many little things remind you of them in a day, and ultimately how it only works if they know it and feel the same.”
‘Easy Now Tiger’ is the follow-up to Hazlett’s 2019 singles, ‘Fireworks’, ‘Suncats’ and ‘Monsters’. Last October, Hazlett also appeared on triple j Unearthed as a featured artist.
His upcoming EP, ‘Thundering Hopes’, is due out in April, and will reportedly be five tracks long. Hazlett also revealed to NME Australia that he is in the process of planning live shows in Australia to support the EP’s release.
