The alternate version of “Never Seen The Rain” arrives on the heels of Tones And I’s performance yesterday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Tones showcased her staggering voice across performances of her breakout global hit “Dance Monkey” and “Never Seen The Rain.”  Having recently performed on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and The Voice, Tones And I is also slated to perform on The Today Show this coming Monday, February 24th.
Never Seen The Rain” is the latest single from Tones And I’s debut EP, The Kids Are Coming, and follows “Dance Monkey,” which has now surpassed 2 billion streams globally, while ruling the charts in more than 30 countries around the world. The most Shazamed song of all time and the longest running #1 ever on the daily global Spotify chart, “Dance Monkey” currently sits at #5 this week on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, making “Dance Monkey” the first top five Hot 100 hit solely written by a woman in over eight years. In Australia, “Dance Monkey” holds the all-time record for the most weeks spent at #1 on the ARIA singles chart, while in the UK “Dance Monkey” has made Tones And I the longest running  #1 of all time by a female artist on the Official Singles Chart. The New York Times recently detailed the making of “Dance Monkey” in their Diary of a Song video series, speaking with Tones And I about her journey from local busker to global star.
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 9x 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 Governors Ball, Bonnaroo, and Osheaga, Tones And I recently kicked off her first-ever North American tour. The sold-out run, which continues tonight in Austin, TX, also includes stops in Dallas, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Philadelphia and Toronto, along with two 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]. For tickets and more information, visit www.tonesandi.com.
