PETE MURRAY ANNOUNCES NEW EP  
THE NIGHT 
SET FOR RELEASE MARCH 26 PRE-ORDER THE NIGHT EP HERE

Today Pete Murray announces his forthcoming EP THE NIGHT is set for release Friday March, 26 via Sony  Music Entertainment Australia.  

THE NIGHT EP IS AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER NOW 

Alongside the EP announcement, the ARIA nominee and one of Australia’s most loved singer songwriters shares a second taste of the EP with ‘Waiting For This Love’. The track, the only on the record Pete wrote  solo, traces light and shade as the chorus lifts with strings and a chorus of backing vocalists. The visuals guided Pete for this contemplative track, “I had a really strong vision of a guy in a big coat not sure whether  to leave a house, (which represents a relationship). The thought of walking out into the moonlight was a very  desperate scene.”

Recorded in his hometown of Byron Bay, THE NIGHT EP, is inspired by his family and the life experiences  that have gotten him to where he is today. It’s a poignant, introspective EP that highlights Pete’s iconic  vocals with modern acoustic pop sound and propels Pete further into the iconic easy listening sphere that  he’s well-loved for.  

THE NIGHT EP marks Pete’s first experience of co-writing, as Pete recalls “Co-writing was something that I  had never done before so I was pretty nervous about it. There are a lot of great writers over in the States and  I felt the pressure of not wanting to let anyone down.” Writing in Nashville and LA though clearly paid off  and after his first writing session, Pete walked away with the first single from the EP, ‘Found My Place’. In a  nod to the original Pete released an official acoustic version for the single last week, available HERE.  

Adapting swiftly to COVID, Pete Murray has created the ‘The Byron Sunday Sessions’. As part of the  YouTube series, Pete chats with fellow musicians and friends to talk life and of course perform some tunes.  So far Pete was joined by Andrew Stockdale, from ARIA Award winning band Wolfmother, Ash Grunwald,  Kyle Lionheart, The Buckleys and more. Pete has also performed ‘Found My Place’, along with classics  ‘Opportunity’,Bail Me Out’ and ‘Feeler’ at his picturesque home.
