The overwhelming response to John Farnham’s Sound Relief performance with Coldplay has sparked talk of a new album from the iconic singer, which could be released by the end of the year. His rendition of You’re The Voice at the successful bushfire relief concert left the 40,000 strong throng ecstatic, and heralded a new generation of Farnham fans.
Now, it has been revealed Farnham, along with manager Glenn Wheatley and Sony boss Denis Handlin, were at dinner together to discuss the future of Farnham’s career on the eve of the event.
Mr Handlin hinted that Wheatley and Farnham might approach Coldplay about writing a song. "We are now talking about the record, tossing around ideas for songs, writers and producers," he said. "I am pretty confident we will have a new studio album out from John Farnham this year. He is in a very positive frame of mind and definitely wants to get back into it."
