A few months back we filled you in on a great Pozible campaign that would bring something undeniably fresh to Australian music, while paying tribute to the past and a true legend of Australian music; Chrissy Amphlett and the Divinyls. That campaign was the Divinyls Reworked project, which sees classic Divinyls tracks given an Australian nu soul spin.

Featuring artists at the forefront of the Australian nu soul, jazz and electronic movement, such as REMi, Jess Harlen and Sietta, this project is now in full swing with the 15 track limited edition music compilation given a proposed release date of December 2014.

Last week, ‘Pleasure & Pain‘ was recorded for the compilation. But rather than simply be reworked by one artist, the team behind Divinyls Reworked decided to assemble a 22 person choir of Australian soul singers to take on this classic number. Featuring standouts such as Hailey Cramer and Tre Samuels, and led by The Operatives member Screamy, what other name would a choir of this calibre from this country have than the ‘Sunburnt Soul Choir’?

Have a look at these behind the scenes shots from the recording and keep it locked to Divinyls Reworked for the official video clip of the recording!
