Armed with one of the most powerful voices in rock ‘n’ roll, Nic Cester has sold over six million albums over the past 10 years with Jet.

Now, Cester is thrilled to introduce ‘Eyes On The Horizon’ – the second track to be revealed from his forthcoming debut solo album Sugar Rush, released on Friday 3 November via Bloodlines, the new entity from Melbourne’s Mushroom Group.

Produced by Jim Abbiss (Adele, Arctic Monkeys, Queens Of The Stone Age) and recorded in Milan’s legendary Officine Mecchaniche studios and George Martin’s Air Studios in London with Calibro 35 (whose work has been sampled on Compton by Dr Dre and ‘Picasso Baby’ by Jay Z), Sugar Rush is a labour of love, a radical departure and a hell of a record.

“So this video was supposed to be shot in a restaurant that Sergio (drums) and I just opened in Milan. There was a big event for Campari the night before and about 400 people turned up and it didn’t finish until 4am. The restaurant had only been open a week and the neighbours, who had been used to a more peaceful environment, went completely crazy and made all sorts of threat. It meant there was absolutely no way we could bring a film crew in the next day and shoot a music video, which presented a huge challenge. We basically had 48 hours to find a new venue and hire everything again from scratch. I don’t know how we managed to pull it all together, but after a very frantic 24 hours we pulled a lot of favours and managed to make it all happen in a friend’s venue not to far away, the Apollo Club. Turned out great – kind of a kitsch Roxy Music vibe.”

Cester will return to Sydney and Melbourne in late Oct/early Nov for two exclusive launch shows, bringing his unmissable, all-Italian live touring band – the Milano Elettrica – along with him. With recent gigs supporting Paul Weller and Kasabian, these dates will be something special. Tickets on sale now:
