“Truly Acoustic” revisits some of Alberts’ most popular tracks in his discography with raw and sentimental tones.
As described by Ziggy, the “nine-track offering is truly acoustic; me, two microphones, and my guitar. This is the heart of songs, laid bare.”
The album includes acoustic versions of his ARIA platinum-certified track Love Me Now and gold-certified Gone.
“I had two goals in mind with this release; to enjoy the recording process, and to feel like I'd given the energy these songs deserved before moving forward,” said Ziggy“My latest album, Laps Around The Sun (2018), along with all my other releases, have brought me such great gifts. I didn't feel like I could say goodbye to these chapters without doing this acoustic collection to pay homage to an incredible journey so far.”

His successes so far include the release of seven records, starting his own label Commonfolk Records, and playing sold out shows across the world; effortlessly attracting millions of listeners.
