Tash Sultana is prepped for the August 31 release of her debut album Flow State while her world tour continues to sell out.

This morning she released new single ‘Salvation’, her first piece of new music for the year.

The singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist explains ‘Salvation’: “I wrote this song when I realised I could be better than the things that I’d done in my past that I regret.

“That I am the creator of my own narrative and can always continue to grow and move forward into being a better person and can always make better decisions, that it’s okay to accept you’ve fucked up from time to time.”

All of the songs on Flow State are produced, written, performed and arranged by Sultana.

She plays every one of the 15 instruments and sounds that feature throughout, including saxophone, pan flute, grand piano and guitar.

Her love affair with the guitar began when her grandfather gave her one when she was three years old.

The album was engineered by Nikita Miltiadou, mixed by Dann Hume and mastered by Andrei Eremin.

The Flow State tracklisting is:

  1. ‘Seed (Intro)’
  2. ‘Big Smoke’
  3. ‘Cigarettes’
  4. ‘Murder to the Mind’
  5. ‘Seven’
  6. ‘Salvation’
  7. ‘Pink Moon’
  8. ‘Mellow Marmalade’
  9. ‘Harvest Love’
  10. ‘Mystik’
  11. ‘Free Mind’
  12. ‘Blackbird’
  13. ‘Outro’

Sultana has continued to broaden her global audience and appeal through live performance.

These include international festivals as Lollapalooza, Coachella Music & Arts, Governor’s Ball, Splendour In The Grass, Montreux Jazz and a headliner at Byron Bay Bluesfest.

On June 24 she returns briefly to Australia for Pineapple Fields on the Sunshine Coast.

Multiple shows have sold-out across the US leg of her tour this month.

In September, she heads to the UK and Europe where eleven of the 12 shows have sold out.

She has already sold over 12,000 tickets in Amsterdam, 20,000 in Germany (Cologne and Berlin), and will be performing three sold-out shows at the world famous Brixton Academy in London equating to over 15,000 tickets – a new feat for an artist before the release of an album.
