Fallow: Tilled earth ready for planting. Possibility of growth, possibility of failure.
Fallow and Variations: Living in the possibility of growth. Ideas that were
given a chance, and thrived, against all odds.
So here is a collection of thriving ideas that yielded from stories already told.
Fallow + Variations: An Idea. A theme. A variation.
It was March 13, 2020, when Fanny Lumsden’s third album fallow managed to make its way out into the world – and what a wild ride it’s been prior to and following its release. Recorded throughout the blistering 2019/2020 summer amidst the disruption of the devastating bushfires, come the time of its release the day the music industry and the world had come to a standstill (with no thanks to COVID), and faced with the uncertainties of what lay ahead, fallow went on to forge its own path.
The stunning chart-topping album was embraced by the public, supportive radio and critics, winning Lumsden many accolades (ARIA Award, 5 x Golden Guitars, AIR Country Album of the Year) and shooting the singer-songwriter to the forefront of the Australian Country music scene.

Fast track two years (almost) to the day since fallow’s release, March 11, 2022, will see Lumsden release fallow Part 2, in fallow & Variations.Featuring reinterpretations of the songs, such as singles This Too Shall Pass, Dig, Fierce, These Days, Grown Ups, Tidy Town…, fallow & Variations saw Lumsden, Dan Stanley Freeman and several guests head back into the studio, with Matt Fell back at the helm, to show another side to fallow.
Lumsden says, “I feel like there was so much more to explore with fallow, that often you get to experience out sharing the songs and stories with people face to face, however due to the fact that touring was stilted so many times, we had to find different ways to tell the stories and explore the songs a little more. It feels a little exciting and a little, almost akin to relief, to share the songs in a different way.”
The first track, Dig (Variations) is out now (listen below).
Lumsden originally said of the single, “Dig came out of a time where I was finding the line between gritting your teeth, digging deeper on something and letting it go of the things we can’t control, a moving target that has only become more relevant as 2019 turned to 2020 and 2020 has worn on. It’s ultimately about finding the joy where you can, and it always peps me up especially when the brass come in!”
