Sarah Blasko has dropped the title track off her highly anticipated fourth album, I Awake. The soundscape appears to be a new direction for Blasko, known for her own brand of down-tempo pop and haunting voice. What’s found in I Awake is a thick and rich sound, full of colourful yet dark strings, brass and piano. The lyrical work is also a winner. The rest of the album is out on October 26.
