Thelma Plum Better In BlakSeven years after arriving on the Aussie alt-pop scene and after the release of two critically acclaimed EPs, deadly talent Thelma Plum has announced her debut album, Better In Blak.

“This album reflects some pretty dark times in my life, but these songs kind of  helped pull me out of it – it’s cathartic, in a weird way,” the Melbourne-based singer-songwriter explains. “I’m excited for people to hear these songs but some of them come from grim places, so it’s a bit daunting having them see the light of day. There’s some funny stuff on there, too – it’s not all doom and gloom!”

It’ll feature previously-released and mega-adored singles Clumsy Love, Not Angry Anymore  and Better In Blak, plus Love And War which features Gang Of Youths’ Dave Le’Aupepe, and another track co-written with living legend Paul Kelly.

She’s also divulged the upcoming August dates for her album tour, and last but not least, the clip for Better In Blak! Hell’s bells, this is huge!

You can pre-order the album from JB right now, and they’ve got a pretty sweet bonus for those who do. Meanwhile, here are those dates, and keep scrolling for that clip.
