SPACEY JANE Announce RAC Arena show, new single ‘Hardlight’

With the release of their second album Here Comes Everybody fast approaching (out Friday, June 24), ARIA Award winners Spacey Jane have today revealed their new single and video Hardlight.

“I wrote this song about how I was feeling like my life was a bit like one of those nightmares where you’re at school with no pants,” said vocalist and guitarist Caleb Harper about the track. “Except I used the metaphor of being on set and forgetting all of your lines (because it felt less silly).  I guess it’s about anxiety but also just having no idea what I’m doing even though I want it to look like I really do.”

He continues on the video, “Finding time to produce music videos in between touring can be pretty squishy and occasionally calls for spontaneous and strange ideas – Hardlight was one of those. This was our second time working with Nick (McKinlay), he created the concept for and workshopped the Lunchtime music video remotely due to COVID border restrictions, so it was great to have him on set this time.”

“The brief was pretty simple: We had a day off in Melbourne and we wanted to film a whole performance-based video that felt interesting and exciting. Nick pitched the charter boat and we loved it straight away, we got to dance around on a party boat on the Yarra River for six hours, it was a lot of fun.”

The new single comes along with the exciting news that the band will embark on an Australian album tour this August taking in all the capital cities, including a hometown Perth show at RAC Arena on Friday, August 5. 

Here Comes Everybody features recent singles It’s Been A Long Day,  Sitting UpLots of Nothing which landed at #3 on the triple j hottest 100, and Lunchtime which also took out the #12 position. It will be the follow up to their 2020 debut album Sunlight, which debuted at #2 on the ARIA album chart and was voted Album of the Year in the triple j Listener’s Poll.

Spacey Jane have released their new single Hardlight from their upcoming second album, Here Comes Everybody, which comes out Friday, June 24, 2022. Spacey Jane play Perth Arena on Friday, August 5. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, May 27 from spaceyjane.com.au
