Mitch Tambo has released his new single ‘LOVE’, following his iconic performance at Fire Fight Australia with John Farnham, Olivia Newton-John and Queen’s Brian May.
An upbeat anthem, sung in Tambo’s Gamilaraay language, ‘LOVE’ delivers a powerful message of hope to a world undergoing crisis.
“Within this current climate, we find ourselves in isolation craving for many of the things we love in this world. ‘LOVE’ is a reminder to reach deep down within, heal and set our spirits free with love, healing and hope for a better tomorrow”, Tambo says.
“If we can use this time to work on loving ourselves better and loving others better when this is all over, we will be ready to move forward as a collective like never before.”
The song was written prior to the global COVID19 crisis, but Tambo says its universal themes have taken on a new meaning as we are isolated from the things, places and people we love.
“I wrote ‘LOVE’ on my way back to suburbia after being on my country and feeling the unconditional love that I feel when I’m there. ‘LOVE’ is about that one particular space we go to as humans to find love and healing, where our hearts are broken open and set free with love. For some it’s going to the footy with the family, others could be sitting on a headland watching the waves roll in.
“For me, it’s being back out in the bush on my country hearing the cockatoos sing at sunset, watching the stars light the sky with ancient stories and being lost in the dance of the camp fire.”
It’s been a massive twelve months for the Melbourne-based songwriter, who first came to national attention last year when he performed John Farnham’s iconic anthem ‘You’re the Voice’ on Australia’s Got Talent, wearing the Dhinawan and Murray crest and feathers, which have significant meaning to his people. Tambo released a version of the song in late 2019 and competed in Eurovision: Australia Decides with his uniting track ‘Together’.
In February this year, Tambo closed out the historic Fire Fight Australia concert singing ‘You’re the Voice’ with John Farnham, Olivia Newton-John and Queen’s Brian May in a performance for the ages. His songs have charted on music charts around the world, including United Kingdom, United States of America, Denmark, France, Switzerland, Malta, Indonesia, Thailand and New Zealand,
Throughout the period of isolation, Tambo has been using his Instagram account to do daily TAMBO TALK to motivate and connect with his fans directly. Tambo has since partnered with NITV for TAMBO TALK to stream live Friday nights at 830pm (AEST) on NITV Facebook.
