‘Back Yourself’ is the third solo album from acclaimed singer/songerwriter Ben Salter, following 2011’s ‘The Cat’ and 2015’s ‘The Stars My Destination,’ and his second album to be released through ABC Music.

The album was made over a twelve month period at locations around Tasmania and predominantly recorded with producer Chris Townend (Augie March, Daniel Johns, Tim Finn, Portishead) at his White Light studio, located on the edge of Tasmania’s Huon Valley.

‘Back Yourself’ continues some of Salter’s long held thematic preoccupations – love, dreams, armageddon, video games; the ocean and the stars; the intersection of myth and science; and the nature of reality itself.

“Isolationism” the first single from the album was written with long time Gin Club collaborator Conor Macdonald, whilst final track “End Of Days” was written in Lyttelton with NZ songwriter and performer Marlon Williams.

Back Yourself features guest appearances by well known Australian guitarist and songwriter Jeff Lang, Peter “Blackie” Black of underground legends The Hard Ons, and Something for Kate drummer Clint Hyndman.
