After a watershed year in 2019, Melbourne rock favourites Slowly Slowly are kicking off 2020 with the announcement of their third album Race Car Blues. The follow up to their critically-acclaimed 2018 effort St. Leonards, Race Car Blues launches today with the reveal of the album's title track and music video, before the release lands in full on Friday February 28.
The album captures a formative period for Slowly Slowly frontman Ben Stewart
. Where St. Leonards
found him reflecting on his entire life – harking back to painful moments and trying to rectify them – this album traverses through a crucial 18 months of self assessment and development.
Describing soaring album closer 'Race Car Blues' in more depth, Stewart explains that the song was something of a "hard chat" with himself. The track and accompanying music video capture Stewart grappling with the incongruence between where he was at as a person and artist and where he wanted to be.
To celebrate the release of 'Race Car Blues' Slowly Slowly will hit the road across April and May on their biggest tour yet.

It's with a heavy heart that we have to postpone the RCB tour once again. As you imagine, it's been a difficult timeline to navigate, but we have been able to reschedule all the dates & hope to see you in 2021.

All of your tickets are valid for the new dates, but if you are unable to attend the new dates you can contact the ticket outlet and request a full refund. On a positive note it gives you/us more time to learn the words, we have some awesome stuff planned for this tour you won't regret it.
