about

"Are You Lookin' at Me?" is Colin Hay's first studio album of new material in over five years. A tuneful, insightful meditation on life, love, sobriety, maturity and perseverance, the album finds Hay at the absolute peak of his craft. As a writer and vocalist, he has never been more masterful: finding intriguing new angles on instantly relatable scenarios, skewering and savoring in equal measure. His less acclaimed but no less formidable skills as arranger, engineer and bandleader insure that each song is supported by evocative musical backdrops ranging from electronic textures to plaintive acoustic balladry to classic guitar-driven pop."Are You Lookin’ at Me?" is unified by Hay’s immediately identifiable voice, relentless curiosity, wonder and a decidedly uncluttered sound which has its roots in Hay’s consistently busy tour schedule.

Few have endured and survived the way Hay has, from an unimaginable pinnacle of success to forging new roads as a working artist and songsmith. Avoiding the pitfalls that have claimed so many of his peers (drugs, depression, delusion), he continues to ply his craft. The rewards, he knows now, are greater than something as fleeting as fame and notoriety. "Are You Lookin’ at Me?" is the next chapter in a story that is still unfolding – on his terms. “I feel really great about this record,” Hay reflects, “because I feel close to it. I don’t listen to it and think ‘Oh, that’s not me’ or ‘I’m trying to do something weird here.’ That’s what’s different...I have a great band and a great group of people to work with. It’s fun now. But not in a light way – it’s got ome weight to it. But,” he says smiling, “it’s not like I have to please anybody. Well, maybe my wife.”
