Missy Higgins is set to hit the road this June for her first national Australian tour since 2007. Her comeback onto the touring circuit coincides with this morning's unveiling of her comeback single, Unashamed Desire - her first release in over five years also.

A private decision to quite music - which was essentially revealed through her absence - came after the release of her first two albums The Sound Of White and On A Clear Night, which sold over a million copies combined.

Today's single Unashamed Desire is the first from her new album, The Ol' Razzle Dazzle, which will be released Friday 1 June.

The single's video was also released today and was directed by Natasha Pincus, who directed Gotye's now-iconic Somebody That I Used To Know clip.
