He is experiencing a renaissance in his career thanks to the revival of his hit single The Horses from the 90s.

“I can’t wait for you all to hear,” he gushed.
Love Songs marks the first release of the Aussie legend in seven years, after Forever The Tourist in 2013.
In February, Daryl delighted fans with The Horses at Fire Fight 2020.

The sold-out audience joined the chorus, which has since become Australia’s unofficial national anthem.
The singer was inducted into the ARIA Awards Hall Of Fame in 2017.
The iconic star accepted the award, remembering how he quit singing in the mid-1980s after Sherbet disbanded and became unemployed.

The One Summer singer resorted to government aid while looking for a job.
“I had to get on the roll,” Daryl said. “After about six weeks, they found a job at the Sunbury Congregation, where I worked on the road for ten weeks.”
But Daryl soon found himself singing again because he couldn’t live without it.
“If you are a young person who wants to play music and you have the passion, please listen to the voice in your head and take the chance because it is really worth it,” he said.
