Downie to re­lease new 23-song al­bum

Truro Daily News - - CANADA -

TORONTO — Gord Downie is re­leas­ing a new solo al­bum of 23 orig­i­nal songs pro­duced with long-time col­lab­o­ra­tor Kevin Drew. “In­tro­duce Yer­self” is slated for re­lease Oct. 27 with each song writ­ten about a spe­cific per­son.

His web­site says the tracks were recorded dur­ing two four-day stu­dio ses­sions in Jan­uary 2016 and Fe­bru­ary 2017. Many of the songs came to­gether in a sin­gle take. This marks the sec­ond al­bum by the Trag­i­cally Hip front­man since go­ing pub­lic with his ter­mi­nal brain can­cer di­ag­no­sis. Last Oc­to­ber, he re­leased “Se­cret Path”, an al­bum, graphic novel and film based on the story of Chanie Wen­jack, a young Ojibwe boy who died while try­ing to es­cape a res­i­den­tial school.
