All of Kasey Chambers' dreams have come true with the announcement of a brand new album called Campfire (featuring Emmylou Harris)

Kasey Chambers Campfire

The highly decorated and universally revered Kasey Chambers announced the upcoming release of her twelfth (!) studio album, Campfire, on Friday.

Chambers was overwhelmingly excited when she made the announcement via Instagram saying, "I'm so excited to share it with you. It's an album that's been in my heart and soul for my whole life and it's finally here."

The first single and a gorgeously warm video for The Campfire Song dropped on the same day.

Making an appearance on Campfire is GRAMMY Award winning artist and longtime country icon Emmylou Harris.

 “It is an absolute dream come true that I actually have Emmylou Harris singing a duet with me on Campfire,” Chambers says.

Also joining Chambers on Campfire is her band The Fireside Disciples, consisting of three of her favourite musicians - Brandon Dodd, who has toured the world with Kasey over the last three years; Alan Pigram, a long-time family friend, fellow musician (from the renowned band The Pigram Brothers) and Indigenous elder from Broome WA; and of course her Dad, Bill Chambers, who has been the biggest musical influence of her whole life.

Chambers says, “I grew up in the remote outback of Australia living a unique lifestyle isolated from civilisation. The campfire was the heart of our existence: for survival, creativity, inspiration. We hunted all our own food and then cooked it on the campfire. My brother and I did all our schooling via correspondence around the campfire. We used the campfire for warmth and light. We gathered around the campfire at night to play songs together as a family. Our connection to music and the land has developed through and around the campfire since I was born, so it has always stayed with me as a special part of my life."

Campfire is out 27 April
