Song of the Day: Marlon Williams – My Boy


Speaking of the new song, Marlon says that it is a pop song with Maori influences and that he felt the artistic urge to strum chords linked to the Polynesian tradition while writing his music. The video was directed by Martin Sagadin and Williams himself, while the fun choreography was done by Robyn Jordaan. ‘My Boy’ comes 4 years after ‘Make Way For Love’, which won the Album of the Year at the New Zealand Music Awards and debuted at the top of the New Zealand best-selling record chart and at number 8 in Australia. In the meantime he sang and performed with Lorde and Florence Welch, recorded duets with Courtney Barnett, Paul Kelly and Yo-Yo Ma, an album with Kacy and Clayton and composed the soundtrack for the 2021 film ‘Juniper’. In addition to his musical career, Marlon is pursuing that of an actor, thanks to important roles in successful films and series such as ‘A Star is Born’, ‘The True History of the Kelly Gang’, ‘Lone Wolf’, ‘The Beautiful Lie’ and ‘Sweet Tooth’. Enjoy the tune!
