About Colin Hay
"An aboriginal man once came backstage after a show and said to me in a kindly voice, ‘Where’s your dance? I used to like your dance, you’ve lost your dance mate, you’ve gotta find your dance.’ So, I set out in search of it, looking here, there and everywhere in all corners of the globe. Quite soon I realized that "finding my dance" is an inner search, and that whilst I may never truly find it, it matters not. What’s important is to keep searching, and in the process, refine and simplify the steps."—Colin Hay
Colin Hay is a man hard at work. Upcoming in fall 2014, Hay will re-release his landmark 2003 album Man @ Work on vinyl, which boasts tracks such as a stripped-down, intriguingly paced new version of “Down Under” sits perfectly alongside “Beautiful World,” “Love is Innocent,” and other exquisite modern-day Hay.
He celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Men at Work hit “Down Under” from chart-topping Business As Usual by releasing “Down Under 2012,” a re-recorded version of the #1 single and touring in support of the release. Early last year, Colin released his critically acclaimed latest album Gathering Mercury on 18-gram vinyl, followed by multiple performances at the hugely popular Bonnaroo Music Festival, and last February he was invited to serenade Ellen Degeneres for her special birthday episode. He has also performed on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, has interviewed at length on CNN with Brooke Baldwin and has performed for Rolling Stone Live.
