It was about a year ago we last caught up with WA treasure Jacob Diamond, who'd just released the single Docks, and was working away on what is to be his debut album, Goodbye Gondwana, officially released this Friday. At the time he noted, "The songs on this record were written by me over the last three or four years, mostly about the changing of a way of life," and we're chuffed to offer you an exclusive stream of the album a few days out from release.

Produced with Lachlan Carrick (Gotye, Paul Kelly, Gretta Ray) and mostly recorded by Diamond and band on a farm in regional WA, Goodbye Gondwana is showcase of his unique brand of alt-folk, one that combines honest storytelling with an unassuming yet utterly engrossing knack for songwriting. According to Diamond himself, Goodbye Gondwana is "a testament to what you can achieve if you fall in love, get money, write songs, feel great, stress out, get broke, lose love, give up, re-energise and re-commit with damp cheeks and gritted teeth!"

But enough of our gas-bagging, you can take a listen yourself below, and catch him on his biggest national tour to date at one of the dates handily listed down the bottom for you:
