Brisbane’s Conrad Sewell has certainly packed a lot of living into his 31 years, and it’s all here on his aptly titled and eagerly awaited debut album, LIFE.

Regrets? He’s had a few. But he’s not afraid to write about them, confessing: “I’ve ruined every chance I’ve ever had without ever skipping a beat.”

It’s ridiculous to call a debut album a redemption story, but that’s what this is. Fortunately, Sewell’s precocious talent prevails. What a voice! ‘Journey’ is an overused word in the modern music world, but this life is quite a trip.

LIFE is out May 17 via Sony.
