Any suggestions that Stella Donnelly couldn't top what she achieved last year have been pretty quickly put to bed and we're all of two months into 2018. Following a heap of big festival appearances over the summer season, she's recently announced a huge joint Australian tour with Alex The Astronaut, and today comes news she's signed with leading US indepedent label, Secretly Canadian. They'll be re-releasing her breakout EP Thrush Metal on June 22, which will come with a bonus track and limited 12" vinyl edition. To mark the occasion she's also dropped a new video clip for Mechanical Bull, a track according to Donnelly "is dedicated to people who work in hospitality who have to deal with customers, especially drunk ones, harassing them and making objectifying comments."

Along with appearances overseas at SXSW and The Great Escape Festival, she's got a lot of upcoming Australian shows - check out the full run down the bottom.
