Watch Julia Stone Perform “Break” and “Fire in Me” in Sydney for “Neighborhoods”

Joined by a five-piece band, the Australian songwriter plays two tracks from her new album Sixty Summers.

While the name Julia Stone may look more familiar with her brother Angus’ name attached to it, one half of the folk-pop duo has proven once again with her third studio album that she’s equally proficient as a solo artist. Not that her new album Sixty Summers isn’t a collaborative effort—the record came together with the help of producers Thomas Bartlett, a.k.a Doveman, and St. Vincent, while she fills her brother’s position by duetting with The National’s Matt Berninger on one track. 

In this spirit of collaboration, Stone’s “Neighborhoods” session sees the songwriter playing through two album tracks—the funky, upbeat “Break” and the cooler, trumpet-infused “Fire in Me”—with a full band of musicians in front of a hazy Sydney backdrop. Watch the inordinately gleeful band play through both tracks below.
