Former Midnight Oil frontman and former federal MP Peter Garrett will tell his story in Big Blue Sky.

The Garrett biography will detail the life of Garrett through the international rise of one of Australia’s most successful bands to Garrett becoming a Labor minister for two Australian governments.

Garrett was one of the rare breed of genuine politicians who stood for people, indigenous communities, nuclear arms and the environment.

Midnight Oil had eight consecutive Top 10 albums in Australia including three number one albums in a row, Red Sails In The Sunset, Diesel and Dust and Blue Sky Mining.

Midnight Oil also cracked the American chart with Diesel and Dust selling over one million in the US and Blue Sky Mining certified Gold for over 500,000 sales.

The single Blue Sky Mine was also a no 1 hit in the US. Garrett’s Big Blue Sky will be released in October.
