Xavier spoke of today's release;

I am super excited to offer Storm Boy to the world. It's been an amazing journey making this album, many magical collaborations with talented people and many stories to tell. Some of the tracks I've had tucked away under my wing for up to 10 years and I've waited for the right time to bring them to life. I feel like we captured some magic for sure, we explored new territories / sounds but we also peeled stuff back to its rawest form like my early recording days.

I'm proud of this album, happy to share and hopeful folks dig it!

It's been six years since Xav's last solo realese, the ARIA #2 and Gold Certified Spirit Bird and a lot of things have happened in that tim. Storm Boy tracks the journey along the way.

With the annoucnement of the new album Live in the Netherlands comes the news of Xaver's next journey to Europe for a slew of festivals and headlien performances.

‘Live In The Netherlands’ is a recording of the final show on their most recent European tour capturing the magic of those performances. The 18-track double live album consists of Xavier Rudd’s most loved songs including ‘Come Let Go’, ‘Spirit Bird’, the global hit ‘Follow the Sun’ and a brilliant cover of crowd-favourite ‘No Woman No Cry’.


Today Xavier reflects on this memorable concert event:

“Live in the Netherlands kind of just fell together pretty organically. The tour in Europe was sold out and pumping and Bobby, Ant and I were really on top of our game. The energy at the shows was huge and there was a really strong thread of positive intention running through the communities. We had an opportunity to record the last two nights in Utrecht, which I thought would be a good idea mainly for a reference for us to document where we were at. When I listened back to it I felt like we captured some magic particularly on the last night and I’m happy to share, what I feel is the best live product I’ve released to this point in my career.” 

The album is available for pre-order now as a digital download, a double CD and an exquisite limited edition 180g triple vinyl LP produced in all three colours of the Aboriginal flag.

Xavier Rudd shares his thoughts about The Cat Empire;

“I've always had a tonne of respect for The Cat Empire guys since the start. Deadly musicians and lovely people. Over the last 15 or so years touring around the world and seeing their posters in so many different towns and countries has always brought me a smile. I guess it's about time that we teamed up to do some shows together & I'm stoked to share a stage with these legends back on home soil early in 2017!”

'FLAG' Australian tour Announced!
XAVIER RUDD HQ 6 years ago




Following straight on from their appearance at Splendour In The Grass this July, Xavier Rudd & The United Nations will tour Australia-wide throughout August, September and October to celebrate the release of ‘Flag’ – the second single from their acclaimed debut album, Nanna.

Enthralling his devoted fans, Xavier Rudd kicked off 2015 by unveiling his long-awaited dream project; a full-blown dub record, backed by a eight-piece international all-star band. Supporting lead single ‘Come People’, Xavier Rudd & The United Nations embarked on a sold-out national tour in March that took them to packed theatres in every capital city, and ended with a triumphant homecoming in front of a capacity crowd at Byron Bay Bluesfest. 

As the year has progressed, Xavier Rudd & The United Nations have become a global force. Nanna has received rave reviews, and The United Nations are consistently proving themselves to be one of the best live bands in the world. Spending April and May in North America, the band have been met with even more sold-out shows abroad, with New York, Toronto and Montreal all hitting capacity. Across the Atlantic, Xavier Rudd & The United Nations will spend June and July on a European tour, performing for fans in 16 cities across seven countries, before heading back to Australia for the Flag Tour. An incredible itinerary.

With 35 dates across all states (including performances at theDarwin Festival and Caloundra Music Festival) the Flag Tour is not just regional Australia's first up-close introduction to Xavier Rudd & The United Nations, but also the largest regional tour Xavier has undertaken since his 2012 gold-selling masterpiece, Spirit Bird. For his first full band, and the most dynamic album of his career, it's not surprising that Xavier Rudd wants to take The United Nations to every town in Australia.

“In a time when Australia is digging deep, marching together and standing strong for our threatened communities in the Northwest and simply the long awaited need for positive change for reconciliation in our country, I feel the spirit of this band is very important. This album, this tour, this family, The United Nations is an example energetically & spiritually of where we need to be as a nation. We will be touring regional places in Australia; some we’ve never been to, some we haven’t been for a long time, in order to deliver this message and celebrate the energy of one people with our fellow Australians. Its time to Boogie!”- Xavier Rudd

The Flag Tour begins on Sunday, August 9 at the Darwin Festival.

Tickets go on sale on May 21st at 9am.

Together with his new band The United Nations, Xavier Rudd is pleased to announce details of his new album Nanna, and the subsequent national Nanna Tour this March & April. Nanna is out in Australia independently on March 13th via Salt X/Universal. Internationally, Xavier Rudd & The United Nations are excited to announce their new home at Nettwerk for North America, the UK and Europe.

Xavier Rudd’s eighth studio album, Nanna, was mixed by living legend Errol Brown at the Tuff Gong Studios and follows the wildly successful #2 Gold-selling album Spirit Bird (2012). Spirit Bird was led by the huge single “Follow The Sun”, which went Gold in Australia, reached Platinum sales in Italy and led Xavier Rudd to his largest touring itinerary to date, covering almost every continent during a 30-month world tour.

Nanna has been long awaited by Xavier Rudd fans, but even more so by the man himself. Last year, Xavier Rudd put out to the Universe that it was time to record his dream project and ancestors from around the world answered his call, delivering a collective of amazing musicians by way of his brand new band – The United Nations.


Featuring guitar, bass, drums, percussion, keys, horns, flute, saxophone and backing vocals, the appropriately titled Xavier Rudd & The United Nations bands together musicians from all corners of the globe representing the diverse cultures of Australia, Indigenous Australia, South Africa, Samoa, Germany and Papua New Guinea. The band is symbolic of the message that all people of the world can come together and return to spirit, respect the ancient ways, and protect the Earth and the very essence of creation. And, as always with Xavier Rudd, the music is as powerful as the message.


Now at the beginning of the next chapter in his career, the release of Nanna will take Xavier Rudd back out on the road, but as fans have never seen him before... in the role of front-man, amidst some of the best players in the world.

Tour dates for Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane & Adelaide have now been added to the March calendar, joining Bluesfest in Byron Bay and West Coast Blues & Roots as some of the unmissable shows of the year!
