One of the biggest love songs of all time, Julia Stone has provided her own take on Foreigner's classic 'I Want to Know What Love Is' for new Australian drama series 'Love Me'.

It's a haunting rendition with Stone's husky, soothing vocals infusing the track with a nostalgic emotion that honours the original but also creates something that's pretty special in its own right.

The collaboration involved musicians from across the globe, with Melbourne-based artist Leigh Fisher producing the track. "It's been such a fun project to work on," Julia says.

"I've always wanted to create a sound for a show and to be involved with such an inspiring show, such an incredible cast, is so exciting."



'Love Me' is a six-part series that follows the Mathiesons – Clara (30s), Glen (60s) and Aaron (20s) – after an unexpected event changes their lives forever. In a time when conflict, antagonism and antipathy devour our daily newsfeeds, 'Love Me' reminds us that we are all as inadequate and remarkable as each other.

"Julia has done an incredible job of reimagining a classic love song, whilst adding her own modern sound," Alison Hurbert-Burns, Executive Director BINGE, says.

"The song captures the heart of what 'Love Me' is about, a series which explores what it means to love and be loved, with all the fears and hopes that love can bring."

The 'Love Me' cast features Bojana Novakovic ('I, Tonya', 'Birds Of Prey') as Clara, Hugo Weaving ('The Matrix', 'The Lord Of The Rings') as her doting father Glen, and little brother Aaron played by William Lodder ('Wakefield').

'Love Me' will screen on Binge and Foxtel from 26 December. Julia Stone plays Albury Entertainment Centre 19 April as part of Great Southern Nights as well as the sold out 2022 Splendour In The Grass.
