Diana Anaid, the poster-child for 90s Australian indie folk music, returns with her new single “Can’t Apologise”.

Taken from her upcoming album My Queen (due 15th September), “Can’t Apologise” was produced by Steve James (Screaming Jets, Skunkhour, Sex Pistols) with a video shot on location in Los Angeles by Nick Egan.

“”Can’t Apologise” relates to the dilemma faced by friends tempted to take it to the next level,” Diana Anaid explains. “What happens when he/she gets with someone else, sacrificing both the relationship and the friendship? How do you have your cake and eat it too??”

Check out the video for “Can’t Apologise” below:

Diana Anaid will be appearing at the Nimbin Roots Festival, headlining the Cruelty Free Festival in Sydney and World Vegan Day in Melbourne as well as supporting Adam and the Ants through October. All of her upcoming dates are here:
