Join Dan Sultan and special guest WILSN in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne this September/October.
One of Australia’s most gifted vocalists, Dan Sultan, will embark on an east coast headline tour in September and October, playing in grand halls to celebrate his self-titled fifth album.
As well as announcing the tour, Sultan has unveiled the new music video for Ringing In My Ears today. The latest taste of his new album is bright and joyous, an anthem built for going on drives with friends while Father John Misty blares from the car speaker.
“Ringing In My Ears is a power song that began while driving through the hinterland of Northern NSW while listening to Father John Misty’s album Fear Fun,” Sultan said about the song, co-produced alongside friend and collaborator Joel Quartermain.
“It’s about being in a beautiful place in life and enjoying the moments as they come and inevitably pass. It’s a lot of fun to play live, and I love seeing the response from the audience. It’s really exciting.” You can check out the music video below.
Last month, Sultan paid tribute to Archie Roach with a stirring rendition of Took The Children Away.

A grand take on a classic song essential to Australia’s music history, Sultan starts the song in his most tender, vulnerable register before stretching to some excellent chest singing. Accompanied by a piano and, later, percussion, Sultan has nowhere to hide. It’s a rich, exposed performance that we’re lucky to hear. You can listen here.
“Took The Children Away is, to me, the perfect song,” Sultan explained in a press release. “Wonderful melodies with strong and powerful chord progressions, and the lyrics are perfect storytelling. And above all else, it means so much.
“Whether a song really means something is, in my opinion, what makes it great or not, and this work is what I see as the pinnacle of Artistic Endeavour. I love this song for all those reasons, and I’m honoured to know it and to perform it.”
