Mayday is the third album by Mark Seymour and the Undertow, which was released in May 2015.
Seymour said he returned to "a very old way of writing" and acknowledged a blues influence. "I've been listening to a lot of blues and the way old blues artists reverse and invert chords, but they're always the same chords," he said. "It forces you to twist the melody. It's the illusion of simplicity, but you can create a whole lot of drama." He said his storytelling had become more narrative driven. "I invent characters or occupy the space of somebody else and imagine myself in their condition, but there's a lot of me in there.".
