Adelaide native Naomi Keyte has released her latest single, entitled ‘Travelling Woman’.
Listen to it below:
The song is Keyte’s first official single since her debut full-length, ‘Melaleuca’ in 2017. The album earned her nominations for Best Folk, Best Female Artist and Best Release at the 2017 South Australian Music Awards.
‘Travelling Woman’ was written while Keyte was touring in Tasmania. According to a press release, Keyte was contemplating a breakup while on the road. “The song tells the story of loving someone perpetually on the move,” she said.
“It speaks to the push/pull of a relationship in transition, of lingering hope and of reckoning with the unknown.”
Keyte will celebrate the single’s launch with a livestream tomorrow (May 17) via Sunny Side Uploads’ Instagram page. The stream will kick off at 7:30pm AEST.
In an Instagram photo caption, Keyte also promised a video clip for ‘Travelling Woman’ will air soon.

After rehearsing yesterday for the first time in months, I’m really looking forward to playing live (live stream) next Sunday. The band and I have teamed up with @sunnysideadl to celebrate the wider release of our single Travelling Woman (the song will go live on all streaming platforms this Friday). We’ll be playing a set via @sunnysideadl at 7pm Adelaide time on Sunday May 17. We also have a video clip coming! Photo by @rosinapossingham // @vegethreads dress + @argentsilversmith earrings
