Tash Sultana confirmed today (October 29) that they will release their second album, ‘Terra Firma’, on February 19, 2021.
To celebrate the news, Sultana released the album’s latest single, ‘Willow Tree’.
‘Willow Tree’ is Sultana’s fifth track of the year, following on from ‘Pretty Lady’, ‘Greed’, ‘Beyond the Pine’ and ‘Through the Valley’. The latter, a cover of Shawn James’ original, appeared in the video game The Last Of Us II upon its release in June.

Per a press release, Tash Sultana said they “feel really happy” with their forthcoming record.
“I didn’t realise that I needed to create a space and home for myself to feel like a person again. I just went inward and found a really peaceful place and wrote an album, and I feel really happy with it,” they said.
Sultana also revealed that they have begun hatching plans to work ‘Terra Firma’ into their renowned live sets.
“The new live show is everything the live show already was, plus three other people on the stage for a small section of the show,” they said.
Sultana will appear as part of Great Southern Nights in November, performing at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion on November 28. The GSN initiative, spearheaded by the NSW Government, will see 1,000 gigs take place across the state next month.
In August, Tash Sultana led the second lineup announcement for Bluesfest’s 2021 incarnation. The popular festival was cancelled this year as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Jimmy Barnes, Ocean Alley, The Teskey Brothers and more will also perform at next year’s edition.
