Artist/Composer:Michael Schiefel
 Title:Platypus Trio
(P) 2014
International release date 15 August

The Platypus cleared his voice and he said: Thank you, everyone, for coming here today. Here’s what I have to say: I’ve got a bit of land animal in me because of my fur, and I love running across the land. But I also have got a bit of bird in me, because of my bill, and I lay eggs. And I also have got a bit of water creature in me, because my home is right next door to the water’s edge, and I love swimming and exploring that underwater world.

That’s why I have decided not to join anyone’s group whatsoever.
