THE Chantoozies have released their first original song after nearly 25 years.

The Melbourne based band that features Tottie Goldsmith, Ally Flower and Eve von Bibra, have released the new single Black and Blue after a solid couple of years touring around Australia.

Goldsmith wrote the song more than two decades ago while on a creative trip to New York City.

“I wrote some songs including Black and Blue in New York, but when I came back to Australia I got caught up with some television stuff I was doing,” she said.

“I thought I’d deal with the music later because I had to put my attention into TV

“Then before I know it, the tracks went missing, they were on analog reels.

“But eventually they turned up again, all dusty which was exciting.

“I said to the girls, what do you think?

“They said, lets do it, and here we are.”

Goldsmith said the single has special meaning to her because she wrote it.

“It’s exciting because Brett (brother Brett Goldsmith) Eve, and James Reyne wrote most of the songs.

“So it’s exciting to be able to get on stage and perform a song that I’ve written.

“It’s a different experience.”

The Chantoozies two biggest hits were Witch Queen which was released in 1987, and Wanna Be Up, which was released a year later.
