Gamilaraay singer songwriter and ARIA Award winner Thelma Plum has unveiled a stunning re-record of Powderfinger’s 1999 hit single These Days and it’s available in its entirety on all streaming platforms on 28th May.
Whilst busy writing new music for her forthcoming sophomore album, Thelma took a break to record These Days that soundtracks the new CBA We Can. Together. Campaign, which captures life as it currently is for so many Australians, highlighting a country coming together in support of one another, making the best of what is what is indeed a unique situation, while Thelma’s rendition of These Days adds a beautiful, poignant feel to the storyline.
Thelma comments “I was given the chance to record a song I grew up with, and as a Brissie local, I already know a couple of the Powderfinger guys so of course, I said yes. I even recorded parts of it in Ian’s (Haug, Powderfinger guitarist) studio, which made it feel even more natural.”
