AUSTRALIA – After spending the first half of 2017 bunkered down, putting the finishing touches on his 10th studio album CONSCIOUS, Guy Sebastian the multi-platinum super star has come out swinging with “High on Me”, the lead single. Taking it back to his upbeat soulful roots, it’s hard to take this one off repeat.
“High on Me poured out of me while I was in Bali on a writing trip, sitting back looking at the mountains, high on this life. I really wanted to create a soulful earworm that would make young and old want to get up out of their chair and enjoy the moment”, says Guy Sebastian
Guy was the first winner of Australian Idol in 2003, and has been a judge on Australia’s The X Factor. He represented Australia at the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest, finishing in 5th place. Sebastian has worked with a number of notable American musicians, including Brian McKnight, Robin Thicke, Steve Cropper, John Mayer, Jordin Sparks, Eve and Lupe Fiasco. “Battle Scars”, a collaboration with Fiasco, spent 20 weeks on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at number 71 and achieved platinum certification. “Battle Scars” also reached number two in Norway and New Zealand. Sebastian has reached the top ten in New Zealand with an album and six singles, including two number ones, and gained six platinum and three gold certifications there. In 2015 his Eurovision song charted in the top 50 in five European countries.
