When it Rains it Pours for Thelma Plum

Following her long-awaited, striking May single Backseat Of My Mind”, beloved singer-songwriter Thelma Plum is proud to announce her brand new EP Meanjin, due for release on Friday 12th August. In celebration of the extended release, Thelma will be welcoming audiences to The Meanjin Tour, travelling around the country throughout August and September.

The Meanjin Tour sees Thelma joined by some very special guests. “I can’t believe I am lucky enough to have both GRAACE and Jem Cassar Daley join me on this tour,” says Thelma. “They are artists I adore, and I can’t wait to see you all!”

Adding to the already abundant news is a new track When It Rains It Pours– one of Meanjin’s six songs from the heart, about the heartland, and a breathtaking, nostalgic addition to the Gamilaraay artist’s flourishing catalogue.

“After far too much solo time spent in lockdown, I was sitting on my balcony watching my neighbours set up this extravagant looking dinner party during a classic Brissi downpour” says Thelma of the new single. “I was lonely and missed my family terribly. I longed to be sitting around a table with them, but I wrote “When it Rains it Pours” instead!”

Talking to the forthcoming EP, Thelma adds “We all know what happened at the start of 2020 - I was in the middle of recording an album in London when the world changed and in between lockdowns and floods I kept working on music and it became apparent that I had a whole separate body of work which was a love letter to my hometown Meanjin - so here it is for you all”.
