Commenting on the collaboration, Austin Brown of Home Free shared, Amy and Travis were total legends for lending their talents to our version and we cannot wait to get back down under and put this banger in our show!

Amy Sheppard, of indie-pop group Sheppard fame said of the song, You often dream about certain collaborations but timing or vision or schedules just don’t often align. I’m so thrilled I was asked to be part of this new version of an Australian classic. The vocals of Home Free and Travis Collins are magnificent and I’m honoured to be carrying on the tradition from the late Margaret Urlich. I hope the fans love this!” 

Travis Collins added, “When I first heard HOME FREE live at CMC Rocks QLD, they blew my mind. As a group AND individual voices. I was in awe of their talents. To later be invited by the guys to collaborate was a thrill, and the recording process with them was a master-class for me, learning from some true greats of vocal group singing. Honoured to be part of this.”

Additionally, Home Free recently took to the stage last month at the Ubisoft Forward 2023 conference in Los Angeles to perform their new original song, ‘Skull and Bones‘, out now and due to feature in the forthcoming video game of the same name. Against a backdrop of cinematic clips previewing the swashbuckling game for an invited audience, and the hundreds of thousands of fans tuned in via the live stream, the band performed the song for the first time – available to view here – while simultaneously sharing a lyric video on their YouTube and making the track available to stream/download worldwide.

These releases add to an already-packed year for the band, with the announcement of their fifteen-date Road Sweet Road headline tour across the UK & Europe later in 2023, the launch of their USA headline tour, and their long-awaited return to CMC Rocks festival in Australia and CMA Fest in Nashville, among others.
