Multi-Grammy winning superstar Michael Bublé has graced us all with his eleventh studio album, Higher. To celebrate the release, the musician has announced his return to Australian stages, visiting our shores this November and December.


Produced by Greg Wells and Bob Rock along with Allen Chang, Jason ‘Spicy G’ Goldman and Sir Paul McCartney, the album arrives complete with thirteen tracks, bringing together original songs and covers of classic hits. Having enlisted musical legend Willie Nelson to perform alongside him on a rendition of Nelson's Crazy, the singer also worked alongside Sir Paul McCartney on a new version of McCartney's My Valentine.



The album offers up Bublé‘s own take on Sam Cooke’s classic Bring It On Home To Me, You’re The First, The Last, My Everything, and A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square, before closing the record with a tremendously epic version Smile, accompanied by a gospel choir. Across the album, Bublé's distinctive crooner vocals take centre stage above bright sonics and moving soundscapes, laced with story telling lyricism and memorable melodies.


Speaking of the record, the Bublé shares: “This time out, I opened myself up completely to trying new things. I dug deeper while working and surrounding myself with the greatest music makers on the planet with gigantic imaginations. Whether it was sitting down to write with Ryan Tedder and Greg Wells, recording three songs in one day with my pal Bob Rock along with 40 of the most amazing musicians off the studio floor who hadn’t played music in 15 months, dancing around laughing and crying in my underwear in my home studio when a song sounded just right, every moment felt magical or that the universe was conspiring to bring me to this moment in time 20 years into this amazing ride I’ve been on. I have never been more excited after completing an album.”



Bublé is reaching new heights with Higher, with the title tracks visual set to physically premiere from outer space tomorrow morning at 12.00am AEDT on a custom built “MB” aircraft, created by the UK company Sent Into Space. “This is a dream come true for me. I’ve always had a fascination with outer space. Derek Hough directed the video and he is one of the most talented humans in America right now. I feel I’ve made the best record of my career and it only seemed right to present this video from the highest place possible,” commented Bublé.


Kicking off in Newcastle on November 30, the run of shows will continue on to Perth, Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney, before wrapping up in Brisbane on December 17. Tickets go on general sale on April 1.
