Bernard Fanning’s first of two album series

WITH his solo career now spanning more than a decade, Bernard Fanning has firmly cemented his position as one of Australia's finest songwriters and lyricists.

From the country folk-tinged charm of his multi-platinum debut solo album Tea and Sympathy (#1 ARIA Debut) to the rock grooves and horn breaks of its follow up Departures (#1 ARIA Debut).

Wasting Time, the first single from Fanning's upcoming third solo album Civil Dusk, is a piano-driven anthem with an undercurrent of unease, a song that stands alone to both warm your heart, then break it.

Written in Spain during a reflective period in his life, Fanning's unmistakable voice is in fine form, accompanied with spacious instrumentation, his instantly recognisable style is anchored with a strong chorus and a hint of melancholy.

Civil Dusk, due out August 5, is part one of a two-album series. The second instalment will follow in early 2017.
