ZIGGY ALBERTS announces second book of poetry, sun memos

National book signing dates set for May and June

ZIGGY ALBERTS has revealed his next project in the form of sun memos – an explorative collection of poetry to be released by the musician and writer through independent imprint, Commonfolk Publishing.

The poetry book, Alberts’ second self-published release, is unafraid to look inward and relish in its introspective nature. It’s familiar territory for Alberts, whose songwriting style has always been personal and open, but with sun memos, he positions his thoughts and observations in a way that is even more inviting to an audience.

Through the material, Alberts provides more insight into the person behind the music; split into four parts, sun memos is a collection of thoughts put to the page in a beautifully flourished manner.

 Says Alberts of sun memos, “I can breathe a sigh of relief now that sun memos are bundled into these pages. Writing poetry has nothing to do with publishing it. Writing poetry is what music has been for me since the very beginning; an outpour. Minimal planning, maximum emotion. Like my first book, brainwaves, this is another thoughtfully independent project made possible by my family and friends at Commonfolk Publishing. Looking forward to connecting with you all for the second time, and again.”

Alberts’ career has made him a worldwide name, global audiences enamoured with his music and songwriting style across  six Gold singles, seven Platinum singles; one Gold certified album, one Platinum EP and one Double Platinum single. His latest release ‘NEW LOVE’ has repositioned Alberts as a timeless talent, and with sun memos now in the pipeline, the artist is only continuing to enjoy a successful 2024.

 The news of Ziggy Alberts’  sun memos also comes with the announcement of a book signing tour, where fans will be able to get their hands on a copy of the poetry book, and connect with Alberts in person. Taking place across May and June, Alberts will be heading to book stores in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast, dates below.

Fans who are attending Alberts’ upcoming show in Cairns – his first show in Far North Queensland in three years – will have first dibs on securing a copy of sun memos at the merch desk. Pre-orders for the book will be available online via www.ziggyalberts.com.
