Missy Higgins Announced As Ed Sheeran's Support Act
The Scar singer will perform a 40 minute set from approximately 7.30pm on all of Ed's shows next month reaching an audience of nearly a million people from Perth to Brisbane.
“I’m profoundly grateful for the opportunity to share a stage with Ed and play to so many people but it’s already giving me butterflies”, Missy said in a statement. “I don’t know whether I’m excited or terrified - probably a bit of both!”
Taking to twitter, the 34-year-old said:
Missy also released a new single today, Futon Couch, which ushers in a fresh chapter in her career.
The song is about a couch she was sitting on when she first met the man who would become her husband.
The Ed tour and new single will lead to the early May release of Missy’s first album of original songs in 6 years. Solastalgia will be her fifth studio release.
"There’s so much inspiring music being made out there in people’s bedrooms on their computers", explained Missy. "I wanted to see what sounds and beats we could conjure out of the electronic ether, and then try to wrap some stories and traditional instruments around them. It’s a huge journey, this album."
