Just ahead of the release of the new limited series, “Faraway Downs”, an inspiring epic adventure and reimagined extended version of Baz Luhrmann’s 2008 film “Australia.”

Sony Music Australia has released the soundtrack to the series on digital platforms including YouTube, Amazon, Spotify and Apple.

This album features the series theme song, “The Way”, which has been written and performed by Budjerah & Matt Corby. It also features tracks by Electric Fields, King Stingray, Jessica Mauboy and Miiesh.

The story centers on an English aristocrat, Lady Sarah Ashley (Nicole Kidman) who travels halfway across the world to confront her wayward husband and sell an unusual asset: a million-acre cattle ranch in the Australian Outback called ‘Faraway Downs’. Following the death of her husband, a ruthless Australian cattle baron, King Carney (Bryan Brown), plots to take her land and she reluctantly joins forces with a rough-hewn cattle drover (Hugh Jackman) to protect her ranch.

The sweeping adventure romance is explored through the eyes of young Nullah (newcomer Brandon Walters), a bi-racial Indigenous Australian child caught up in the government’s draconian racial policy now referred to as the “Stolen Generations.” Together the trio experiences four life-altering years, a love affair between Lady Ashley and the Drover, and the unavoidable impact of World War II on Northern Australia.
