Schapelle Corby: Convicted drug smuggler appears on pop track

 

Convicted drug smuggler Schapelle Corby has created something of a stir in Australia by releasing a music track on social media.

 

The track, called Palm Trees, features Corby on vocals singing: "I'm in Queensland and it is sunny. I have the palm trees behind me."

 

Corby, 40, has been in the media spotlight since she was arrested in Bali, Indonesia in 2004 carrying 4.2kg of marijuana.

 

She maintained the drugs were planted, but was convicted and spent a decade in prison and a further three years on parole on the island.

 

Her case captivated Australia, where many believed she had been treated unreasonably harshly.

 

Images of the petite, attractive beauty school student sobbing in court - and reports of her deteriorating mental health - gained her much public sympathy.

 

But Indonesia, which has strict drug laws, saw her as a common criminal, and considered her fortunate to have avoided the death penalty.

 

Corby returned home to huge attention in May, and has since posted several videos on social media about how she was managing to avoid the cameras.

 

Her music track, however, has raised eyebrows yet again.

Palm Trees was released by its producer, Adelaide-based Natalie Zeleny, in early December, but Corby shared it on Instagram late on 1 January, reports BBC.
