ARIA award-winning Coodjinburra artist Budjerah just released ‘Therapy,’ a song that resonates with his own personal experiences. We can already tell this is a song we’ll have on repeat!
Budjerah’s powerful new single arrives ahead of supporting Ed Sheeran on his Australian stadium tour throughout February and March. It’s also his first of 2023, and we’re sure it won’t be his last! He has found bold confidence in this new single with its vulnerable verses and delivery and dynamic chorus that will worm its way right into your soul.
Written by Grammy Award-nominated Sarah Aarons (Zedd, Demi Lovato, John Legend) and Stint (Joji, Kesha, Panic! At The Disco), the track is an exploration of the experience and importance of therapy. It also highlights the importance of open communication in relationships. Upon first hearing the demo for the song, Budjerah explains, “I was going through a few things, and the song really nailed how I was feeling at the time. Therapy is about frustration in a relationship. It’s the thoughts and feelings that can erupt when you don’t understand each other, and that can be tough to deal with.”
“Therapy can come in many forms, but taking a step back and getting an outside perspective is something that has helped me.”
Budjerah released his first debut single ‘Missing You’ just over two years ago. Since then, he has indeed grown and excelled as an artist! He now has two EPs to his name, with his debut self-titled release released in 2021 and Conversations arriving in 2022. He has also collaborated with artists such as PNAU on ‘Stranger Love,’ MAY-A on ‘Talk,’ and even globally renowned pop star Ed Sheeran.
The Song Collaboration With Ed Sheeran
Yes, that’s right! The upcoming stadium tour is not Budjerah’s first rendezvous with Ed Sheeran. Budjerah also collaborated with the British megastar last year with an impactful appearance on his track ‘2Step,’ which has seen close to 10 million streams. When we first heard that incredible track, we were left dancing and wanting more! Maybe we’ll see the two collaborate again on a song in the future. We certainly hope so!
Budjerah will support Ed Sheeran on his Australian stadium tour starting in Brisbane on February 17.
We are cheering on Budjerah and welcoming his new single ‘Therapy’ with open arms and open ears! Here’s to hoping that this dynamic new single can achieve the streams it rightfully deserves.
