‘As Day Follows Night,’ Blasko’s third solo album, is widely considered a seminal release of hers.

It achieved a platinum sales certification in Australia, as well as ranking at #19 in Craig Mathieson, John O’Donnell, and Toby Creswell’s book ‘100 Best Australian Albums’.

In addition, itĀ also won the J Award for Australian Album of the Year in 2009.

In triple j’s 2009 Hottest 100, Blasko placed back-to-back at numbers 29 and 28 with the album’s singles ‘All I Want’ and ‘We Won’t Run’, respectively.

Reissue plans for the album were delayed from 2019 to 2020, as she spent last year touring with Seeker Lover Keeper. The supergroup released its second album, ‘Wild Seeds’, last August.

Blasko has since given birth to her second child, Charlie, and produced Jack Colwell’s debut album ‘Swandream’.
