Australian artist Tones And I has shared a lyric video for “Never Seen The Rain,” which is featured on her debut EP, The Kids Are Coming. The official clip is available today on Tones And I’s YouTube channel.
The new lyric video follows Tones And I’s recent announcement that she will be holding a star-studded concert on January 28th at Melbourne’s 170 Russel to benefit those impacted by Australia’s widespread bushfires. The event, which sold-out in two minutes and raised over $50,000, will donate all proceeds from ticket sales to the Australian Red Cross, Country Fire Authority in Victoria, and the New South Wales Rural Fire Service.

Tones And I continues to rewrite history in Australia with “Dance Monkey,” as it returns to #1 on the ARIA singles chart for a 22nd week atop the tally. Furthermore, “Dance Monkey” has quickly crossed 1.5 Billion streams globally, while hitting #1 in 20 countries around the world, including the In the UK where Tones And I now holds the record for the longest running #1 song of all time by a female artist on the Official Singles Chart.
Additionally, “Dance Monkey” has hit a new high of #7 this week on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart on the heels of recent stateside TV performances on NBC’s The Voice and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Originally from Australia’s Mornington Peninsula, Tones And I traveled to Byron Bay in early 2018 to take a chance at busking. On the first day she had crowds spilling onto the street.
Tones quit her retail job and decided to make Byron her new home where she lived out of her van for a year, honing her songwriting and busking every weekend. Today, “Dance Monkey” has been certified 7x platinum by the ARIA with Tones and I taking home four major wins at this year’s ARIA Awards including: “Breakthrough Artist,” “Best Female Artist,” “Best Pop Release,” and “Best Independent Release.”
Having recently been announced for the 2020 Bonnaroo Music & Arts festival, Tones And I will kick off her first-ever North American tour next month on February 11th at Portland, Oregon’s Roseland Theater.
The sold-out run will include stops in Seattle, Vancouver, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin, Dallas, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Philadelphia and Toronto, along with nights in New York City. In the midst of her North American tour, Tones And I will kick off the European leg of “The Kids Are Coming Tour” with a two night stand in London (2/28 & 2/29) followed by shows in Ireland, Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, Norway, Poland, Czech Republic, Austria and France [see itinerary below].
