The Boy (from) George is back. Tyrone Noonan, previously one half of Brisbane sibling duo George, has returned to Australian shores after a five-year stint in New York, and he comes bearing gifts.

The aforementioned gifts do not take the conventional form of a dozen roses and a box of chocolates, but rather a new mini-album entitled I’m A Believer, a reimagining of his debut solo recordI Believe, as well as a tour featuring a select number of national headline shows.

The ARIA award-winner is excited to be re-engaging with an Australian music scene that is “taking charge globally”, a factor he cites for his most recent transatlantic move. “When I first headed overseas it was still essential to ‘be there’ to have an international career, but now, fortunately, you really can do it from home,” Noonan says.

I’m A Believer will be released by MGM on Friday February 7. Catch Noonan in the flesh on Saturday February 15 at Spectrum in Darlinghurst, with support from Melbournian electronic percussionists Pludo.
