To celebrate three decades as a group, Human Nature have released STILL TELLING EVERYBODY – 30 YEARS OF HITS – a retrospective collection of 28 immaculate musical statements including a reimagined version of their hit ‘Don’t Say Goodbye’ & new track ’This Old Heart Of Mine’ via their record label Sony Music Australia.
In January 2019, Human Nature were awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) for their service to the performing arts and entertainment field and Andrew recounts, “We attended a ceremony in Canberra and to witness my Mum and Dad getting teary seeing that their boys had done something the country was proud of was a really cool moment for me. I think people seem very proud of how we represent Australia – not just for the records we make, but also just as people that we are.” On 27th November, 2019, Human Nature will be inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame and Phil marvels, “It’ll actually be 30 years to the day from our first-ever concert when we get inducted, which is great!”
Andrew remembers the group’s debut performance in Bankstown, NSW on 27th November, 1989 very clearly: “We were these four young guys who just got up and sang a doo-wop classic called ‘Earth Angel’ – we still perform that song sometimes, actually. We had sunglasses on and were kind of uncool, but people seemed to like it. It’s bizarre and totally coincidental that it just so happens to be that very same date 30 years later that we’re being inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame. I think we’re the first boy band to be inducted into the Hall Of Fame as well, which is kind of cool.”
2020 will herald new music from the world renowned vocal group. More details will be announced soon.
