Missy Higgins will take the first steps towards repeating her phenomenal success in Australia on these shores when she releases her debut single ‘Ten Days’ on May 30th on Reprise.
Produced by John Porter (former Roxy Music bassist and producer of The Smiths) and mixed by Jay Newland (Norah Jones), ‘Ten Days’ encapsulates all that is great about Missy; its lovelorn lyrics, sorrowful strings and memorable chorus all combining to dazzling effect.
‘Ten Days’ is the first single to be taken from Missy’s hugely successful debut album ‘The Sound Of White’, which receives a UK release on June 13th. The album has made Missy one of the biggest stars in Australia. In 2003 she released a self-titled EP that spent an incredible nine months at the top of Australia’s independent charts. Her next release, ‘The Scar EP’, was even more successful. Not only did it debut at #1 on the singles charts, it notched up ten weeks at #1 on the airplay charts, earning official recognition as the most played song on Australian radio of 2004. Her success at the ARIA Awards (Australia’s Grammy/Brit Award equivalent) confirmed her stardom as she won Best Pop Release for ‘Scar’ and was nominated in a further three categories. She has also won Breakthrough Artist at the MTV Australia Music Video Awards as well as four awards in the Rolling Stone (Australia) readers’ poll.
