Once again, Golden Guitar winner Angus Gill has teamed up with the members of Paul Kelly’s touring band, as Angus Gill and Seasons of Change, offering the poignant track Little Green Man, featuring and co-written with Billy Miller (The Ferrets). It is the second single lifted from their forthcoming second album, to be released in August 2023, marking the fifth studio album for Gill.

Little Green Man is a moving song about fathers and daughters, inspired by a chapter of acclaimed author Trent Dalton’s 2021 bestseller Love Stories. The song was conceived over email, with Gill writing the lyrics and Miller writing the music.

“I was so taken aback by the chapter ‘The Crossing’ in Trent’s Love Stories that I started working on a lyric. The story of a 12-year-old daughter and her father, approaching a set of traffic lights on Queen Street in Brisbane,” said Gill. “The song’s narrative takes place in the space of about 30 seconds, as the father and daughter experience a closeness, in front of the flashing Little Green Man. I wrote the lyric over the space of a few weeks and when I had something I considered close to finished, I sent it to Billy. He sent me back this beautiful musical arrangement, which perfectly complemented the lyric.”

Miller added, “I loved Little Green Man from the start. There was inspiration everywhere, from Angus’ lyrics which were inspired by Trent Dalton’s book Love Stories, then more inspiration from me when Angus sent me an a cappella vocal with nothing else but a drum loop. I’d never collaborated on a song that way, so I came up with the most beautiful chords I could imagine for the song, then the final inspiration came in the studio when we recorded it with a group of Australian legends.”

Dalton also praised the pair’s efforts. He said, “It's so flipping beautiful mate! To turn something you read into such a beautiful song about fathers and daughters and time and life ... well... that's about the best thing I could ever think happening! It means so much to me, as a father of daughters myself.”

The accompanying music video, which premieres today exclusively on Countrytown, was shot by John Elliott and edited by Gill. Watch the video below or via the link here.
