Kicking off the series is one of Mushroom’s most successful bands and one of Australia’s biggest musical exports of the last 15 years.

With over one billion streams, one million album sales, and platinum success across Australia, US and the UK, The Temper Trap today share their take on the 1988 ARIA Single Of The Year and top 30 Billboard hit in the US, Under The Milky Way by The Church – listen here!

Over the coming weeks you’ll hear stunning works released from the likes of Missy Higgins, Bliss n Eso, and Australian icon Paul Kelly – with many more big names to be revealed throughout the year culminating in a Mushroom 50 album.

This will include the entire collection of songs, serving as the definitive compilation of reimagined Mushroom music.

“Mushroom Group’s legacy is something we’re extremely proud of and we have big plans to commemorate it,” said Mushroom Group Chief Executive, Matt Gudinski.
