Unbroken will be Shannon’s first new album in seven years and will feature lead singles 'Who I Am' and 'Southern Sky', a fan favourite cover version of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s Fortunate Son.
“It’s been a good while since I’ve released an album even though I’ve been writing the whole time and I’m so proud to say that these songs are the best of all the songs I have written,” said Noll. “I’ve had more input than ever, so this album is more personal to me than any other before it. I can’t wait to see what my fans think of it, because I couldn’t be happier!”
There’s a sense of coming full circle for Noll on Unbroken. It’s an album of reflection and conviction, the former farm boy from Condobolin taking a close look at his roots, his fame, his love of Australia and his family and at the trials of getting older. Most of Unbroken was recorded in the same Kings Cross Studio that Noll recorded his post-Australian Idol debut album That’s What I’m Talking About in, and saw Shannon again teaming up with producer Craig Porteils, who crafted Noll’s first #1 hits What About Me? and Drive.
Shannon co-wrote with a handful of new and familiar collaborators across the tracks on Unbroken, such as Evermore’s Jon Hume, Busby Marou’s Tom Busby and Sydney songwriter Lindsay Rimes, who contributed six of the songs on Noll’s previous record.
