Oliver Tree will be releasing his debut album Ugly Is Beautiful on Friday 17 July.
The 14 track album contains recently released single ‘Let Me Down‘ as well as previously released singles ‘Cash Machine‘, ‘Hurt‘, ‘Alien Boy‘, and ‘Miracle Man‘.
Oliver made his live debut in Australia in early February on the Laneway tour, turning heads and becoming one of the event’s highlight acts.
With over 1.4M followers on Insta, he’s recently come off a sold out US and UK/Europe tour as well as jam-packed sets at Austin City Limits and Life is Beautiful festivals.
Oliver made his solo late night television debut in 2019 with a ground-breaking rendition of ‘Hurt’ – performed from atop a tall set of stilts – on The Late Late Show With James Corden.
Just days after announcing his retirement, genre-defying singer/songwriter/producer/professional scooter rider, Oliver Tree, has returned with his latest hard-hitting single, ‘Let Me Down‘.
The dynamic new song was produced by Tree and esteemed DJ/Producer Whethan. The surprise comeback track arrives today alongside a hysterical companion video and follows his much-talked about debut Australian shows in February as part of the Laneway Festival tour.
“I wrote ‘Let Me Down’ the day after I cancelled my album due to coronavirus”
Tree says about the new track.
“Cancelling the release was devastating after working on this album for five years. Even though it was completely out of my control, I felt like I let a lot of people down so I made them this song as an apology. Even if I can’t drop the album, I still want my fans to know I care about them. This week I decided to film a DIY music video in my buddy’s warehouse with the help of some close friends and family. To anyone who feels let down or hurt, I ask for your forgiveness…”
The new track follows the bowl-cutted singer’s acclaimed single, ‘Cash Machine’ and critically acclaimed EP DO YOU FEEL ME?, which features hit singles ‘Miracle Man’, ‘Hurt’, and the RIAA gold-certified hit single, ‘Alien Boy’.
The acclaimed magazine stated “Without a doubt, Oliver Tree is the pop star America (and possibly the world) needs…he is changing the game. And you know you want to watch him play it...“ Tree recently wrapped his impressive sold-out headline ‘Goodbye, Farewell Tour” which included stops in over 35 cities across North America and Europe, alongside jam-packed sets at major festivals including Laneway Festival, Austin City Limits and Life Is Beautiful.
Now boasting over 100 million worldwide streams and counting, Tree’s smash hit single, ‘Hurt’ has proven a multi-format radio smash, reaching the top 5 at Alternative outlets in the US. The track’s gripping companion video has over 32 million individual views.
Furthermore, Oliver made his solo late night television debut last year with a groundbreaking rendition of ‘Hurt’ – performed from atop a tall set of stilts – on CBS’ The Late Late Show With James Corden, hailed by Alternative Press as “an incredible performance that only Tree himself could pull off.”
