GUY Sebastian is in a happy state of mind and he plans to show it in his next album.

The 34-year-old singer is in the middle of his You...Me...Us regional tour and says he is loving life on the road.

"I'm doing four or five shows in a row," he said.

"I'm loving it. It's the best."

With a reasonably new band in tow, Sebastian said he was enjoying the freedom the smaller, intimate shows offered.

"The arena tours are great and you fly in and stay at a hotel but they are rigid," he said. "On this tour we have thrown songs in and chucked songs out.

Sebastian is no stranger to the region, owning a house in Hervey Bay.

"Bundy, Gladstone, Maryborough is pretty familiar to me," he said.

"I remember last time I was in Bundy I got my very own personalised ginger beer, which was very nice."

The tour has become a family affair for Sebastian with younger brother Chris his supporting act.

Sebastian could have had his pick of support acts from the many artists he has collaborated with but knew Chris was the right choice.

"He is killing it," he said.

"He thought he might sell 200 to 300 CDs on the tour and he sold that in one night."

2015 turned out to be a watershed moment for Sebastian after he was chosen as Australia's representative at Eurovision.

He finished an impressive fifth with Tonight Again, a song he wrote a few days before the contest deadline.

"When you're there you're completely immersed in the fun aspect of it," Sebastian said.

"But when you sit back and watch it, which I did from the green room, I looked around and thought we have all these people from different cultures and countries speaking different languages, in a region that has a history of territorial warfare, yet this event unifies it."

Sebastian is working hard to put the final touches on his next album, with this tour acting as road test for some of the songs.

While his last album was heavily influenced by a close friend going through a divorce, Sebastian hoped his next would reflect the happiness he has with wife Jules and sons Hudson and Archer.

"I have been writing a lot and I'm hoping to make a happier album," he said.

"I look at my life and I'm so happy with Jules and I want my album to reflect my happiness."

Sebastian plays at the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre on Sunday, January 31, at 7pm. Tickets are $88.50. Phone 4130 4100 for more information.
