"I am finally releasing some new music – it’s been about three years since I’ve released new music..."
Yesterday (1 August), one of Australia’s most successful musicians, Guy Sebastian, revealed that he’s about to release his first new music in three years.
Taking to Facebook and Instagram, the Choir singer uploaded a video to share the news. Telling his fans that it was pre-5 am when he filmed the video (“not my normal operating hours,” he said), the singer shared, “I’ve got some exciting news. I am finally releasing some new music – it’s been about three years since I’ve released new music.”
He added, “I’ve got a brand new single called I Choose Good – I wrote it in LA with [Sydney-based artist] Chelsea Warner and Oak Felder [songwriter and record producer for Demi Lovato, Alessia Cara, Rihanna, Sabrina Carpenter] – what a team! I can’t wait for you guys to hear it; you can actually pre-save it now or pre-add it; it’s officially out August 18th.”
Earlier this week, Sebastian posted a teaser clip of new music, which you can watch below, likely for I Choose Good, which contained soulful undertones. You can pre-save the song here.

In June, Guy Sebastian’s former manager, Titus Day, was released from jail after his lawyer successfully appealed a point contributing to his sentencing.
The 50-year-old manager was arrested on embezzlement charges in 2020, and the trial carried on until November 2022. In court, a jury found Day guilty of 34 counts of embezzlement, adding up to a total of $624,675 of earnings that should have made it to Sebastian between 2013 and 2020.
The $187,524 that Sebastian was owed from his 2013 tour supporting Taylor Swift was included. Day was sentenced to a maximum of four years in jail, ineligible for parole until he’d served two-and-a-half years.
“I've got this new sense of purpose in the way that I write and the way that I make music,” Sebastian told The Music upon releasing his October 2020 album, TRUTH.
The album features some of the Malaysian-born songwriter's most recent hits, including Before I Go, Let Me Drink and Choir, the latter of which The Music revealed as one of the most streamed songs by an Australian artist in 2020.
