LIVE AT THE PRINT SHOP will premiere their latest episode featuring an intimate performance and in-depth interview with Colin Hay on Thursday, October 13 at 9pm ET/6pm PT on the show’s YouTube page.
Colin Hay will perform a selection of classic Men At Work hits and songs from his solo albums, including his latest, NOW AND THE EVERMORE (released March 18, 2022 on Lazy Eye/Compass Records). Written and recorded in Hay’s adopted hometown of Los Angeles, the collection—which features an appearance by Ringo Starr–is a defiantly joyful celebration of life and love, one that insists on finding silver linings and reasons to smile. That’s not to say the record deludes itself about the realities of our modern world, but rather that it consistently chooses to respond to pain with beauty and doubt with wonder.
“This was an absolute highlight for me,” proclaims LIVE AT THE PRINT SHOP creator/host Adam Blank. “Colin Hay is one of my favorite artists and having him here on LIVE AT THE PRINT SHOP was a dream come true. His music was a transformative force in my life and I’m excited to share this episode with the world.”
Born in Scotland, Colin Hay moved with his family as a teenager to Australia, where he first came to international fame with seminal ’80s hitmakers Men At Work. While the band would reach the heights of stardom—they took home a GRAMMY Award for Best New Artist and sold more than 30 million records worldwide on the strength of #1 singles like “Who Can It Be Now?” and “Down Under”—by 1985, they’d called it quits and gone their separate ways. Hay released his solo debut the following year and, over the course of the next three-and-a-half decades, went on to record twelve more critically acclaimed studio albums that would help establish him as one of his generation’s most hardworking and reliable craftsmen.
