Michael Johns is in Australia doing some press and events appearances. He stopped by radio station Australia Nova 969 to sing an original song, “Fools Gold” that will appear on his upcoming album. He says it’s not the single but “representative of what will be on the album.”
ETA: Michael co-wrote the song, It appeared previously on his 2007 Solo album. Peeps are linking some of Michael’s earlier work with The Rising and Film in comments. Good stuff!
Whoa, me likey! It’s blusey, soulful–perfect for Michael’s gruff vocals.
He tells Nova the album is “Van Morrison meets Joe Cocker meets INXS” and will be released in February, with a single in November.
