Singer-songwriter and The Voice Australia coach Guy Sebastian will take fans backstage and into his home for an upcoming TV special to air on Nine next week.

Guy Sebastian: The Man Of The Music will air on Monday (June 29) after The Voice and just days after releasing his latest single ‘Standing With You’, out this Friday.

The special includes footage of Sebastian performing some of his greatest hits including ARIA Song of the Year ‘Choir’, which also topped the TMN Hot 100 Airplay Chart.

The footage of his performances will give fans an escape from the lack of live music amid the coronavirus pandemic, with all performances filmed during his 2019 ‘Ridin With You’ tour.

“As a songwriter, I think some of the best songs that come about are the circumstantial ones,” says Sebastian. “I remember when I was writing ‘Battle Scars’ – same thing, you know? I think songs just flow through you when you’re vulnerable and in a sensitive place; you need an outlet to express your emotions.”

Nine’s promo also promises access to Sebastian’s home with his family and collaborators interviewed, plus the “humour and passion” that has driven him throughout his career to date.

“Hopefully everyone will get the chance to peek behind the curtains at what makes the songs come to life, as well as what my life is like. I’m really proud of this project.”

The Voice battles rounds began on Sunday, with a peak of 872,000 metro overnight viewers.
