Gordi today releases Can We Work It Out (Reworks) via Liberation Records (Jagjaguwar outside Australia). The 4-track EP explores various re-imaginings of ‘Can We Work It Out’, the stand-out single from Gordi’s first EP Clever Disguise which also featured on her debut LP, Reservoir (2017). Here, Gordi passes over the reins to pop whizz Shura and prolific collaborator RAC for their take on the single. Each of the tracks are accompanied by thier own stunning visual.

“This track has been around for a little while, and I owe that song a lot,” Sophie  Payten (aka Gordi) says. “To hear this song I wrote back in 2013 reimagined in such unique and contrasting styles breathes new life into it for me. RAC and Shura are artists I admire so much and they really owned this tune in their own ways.”

Shining atop the re-workings by Shura and RAC, Payten’s singular vocals remain at the front and centre. RAC explains, “Ultimately I was trying to create something surrounding the fantastic vocal. I like to play with that fine line in between sad and happy and the melancholic lyrics helped. Sunny and hopeful on the surface with some darkness underneath.”

Following the release of her debut album Reservoir in 2016, Gordi went on to tour alongside the likes of Bon Iver, Ásgeir, Fleet Foxes, Metronomy, Julien Baker, Gang of Youths and Missy Higgins. In July this year, Gordi performed a number of collaborative sets at Justin Vernon’s Eaux Claires festival in Wisconsin. One such performance was a completely improvised set at a house made of musical instruments. She also joined The National and Bon Iver on stage during the festival.

With a number of incredible singles under her belt including ‘On My Side’, ‘Heaven I Know’, ‘I’m Done (featuring S. Carey)’, and of course ‘Can We Work It Out’, Gordi’s music has been streamed well over 10 million times. She co-wrote and featured on pop sensation, Troye Sivan’s track ‘Postcard’ from his debut album Bloom. Gordi also recently won the Songwriter Award at the inaugural Women In Music Awards and was nominated for the 2017 J Award for Australian Album of the Year.

Gordi is currently on tour across Australia and New Zealand as the main support on the sold out Sam Smith The Thrill Of It All Tour. She was today announced as special guest on her friend Julien Baker’s forthcoming Australian tour. The tour includes a stop in at Gordi’s hometown of Canowindra, four hours west of Sydney, where Gordi will introduce Julien to her family and friends!
