Some of Australia’s top musicians recently came together to tip their hat to Australia’s iconic Sydney Opera House, with a new version of Nick Cave’s The Ship Song.

Led by Sydney creative agency Three Drunk Monkeys, notable artists like Katie Noonan, Sarah Blasko, Paul Kelly, Neil Finn, Angus and Julia Stone, Paul Kelly, Martha Wainwright and Daniel Johns have all lent their voices to the love song.  The Ship Song Project took ten months to create and is viewable on the project’s microsite.
