Midnight Oil has released a music video for its first new music in 17 years, the song “Gadigal Land,” which is the first single off the group’s forthcoming mini-album The Makarrata Project, with “our First Nations friends.” The video was directed and filmed by Robert Hambling at Rancom Street Studios and Oceanic Studio in Sydney, according to the group.

The new song features contributions by vocalists Kaleena Briggs, Bunna Lawrie and Dan Sultan plus a lyrical section written and delivered by Gadigal poet Joel Davison.

The eight-song Makarrata Project mini-album is due out in late October, according to the band.

  1. Seventeen years just disappeared! The Oils seem to have picked up where they left off with this killer comeback track. Welcome back to the band that always has something of true substance to say and know just how to say it!!!
