Dani Young has stepped into the director’s shoes once again to create her latest music video, Outback Lullaby in collaboration with her fans. A captivating video dreamed up and brought to life during isolation, Young uses a green screen and footage sent in by fans around the world to take you on a virtual journey across outback Australia.
“This music video is incredibly special, and I never would have thought up the idea if it weren’t for Covid restrictions.” Young said. “I couldn’t go out and film the video I originally had in mind, so I asked my fans to help me bring the outback to everyone who’s stuck at home.”
Arguably one of the most productive Australian artists during lockdown, Young directed, produced and edited the music video herself, while also producing two weekly livestream shows – an interactive online music trivia show Celebrity Country Music Wiz, and a country music talk show The Midday Muster with Dani Young which bravely includes a live songwriting segment using audience comments as lyrics.
Outback Lullaby is the latest release for Golden Guitar finalist Dani Young, produced and co-written by Australian Idol winner Damien Leith. The song is a bold fusion of country story-telling with a dreamy soundscape that evokes visions of a night sleeping under the stars.
The uniquely Australian song creates its own place within the country genre, and showcases Young’s signature high notes combined with her defiantly creative songwriting.
Outback Lullaby is available now across all digital platforms.
