Written during a real in-between stage of his life, ‘No Throne‘ explores Hudson’s conscience, while providing the listener with a captivating story about life’s lessons.
For Hudson, this new single represents the feeling of isolation creatives have when they put on a mask to either conceal themselves or protect themselves.
“I would write these really sad songs, that I thought were genuine, but in the end felt forced and false. I felt like I was lying to the audience and feeding them their own expectation of ‘sad music,’ Hudson told TLF.
The track also features an all-star lineup of creatives including; Dom Cork (vocals), Hamley (producer) and Vince Cheng (mix/master).

“I’m so blessed that Sean Fitzsimons and the rest of the Day Ones team have always been super supportive of me and my music,” said Hudson.
The emcee also told TLF he is grateful for the people who were involved, as with a collaborative effort, the track got taken to a whole new level. Hudson stated it was the “best creative experience [he’s] ever had.”
In terms of his music influences, Hudson named, “Kanye. Hands down. He’s everything to me. I also love Kid Cudi, Aminé and KYLE.”
“[Allday] said to me ‘Australian hip-hop can and should be anything you want it to be’, and that’s stayed with me forever,” Hudson told TLF.
With 2018 narrowing to a close, Hudson announced he hopes to “release [his] second EP ‘We Need To Talk About Hudson’ in November, then do a launch show in Melbourne.”
Additionally, he told TLF that in 2019 he would love to tour Australia again, while raising money for a charity, just like he did for this years Ante-Up tour with Fresh Violet.
