23-SONG DOUBLE ALBUM PRODUCED BY KEVIN DREW OUT OCTOBER 27 VIA ARTS & CRAFTS
PREORDER OF INTRODUCE YERSELF BEGINS SEPTEMBER 29
“This is my solo record. Each song is about a person.”
Gord Downie announces Introduce Yerself, a double-album of twenty-three new songs.
The music was recorded swiftly over two four-day sessions in January 2016 and February 2017, with the finished album often reflecting first takes.
Introduce Yerself continues the collaborative relationship that last year brought the music of Downie’s historic Secret Path to life, with Kevin Drew producing the album and co-writing a number of the new songs.
Video directors Jennifer Baichwal and Nicolas de Pencier have put together a short video clip below.
The album will be released on CD and digital on October 27. The vinyl will be in stores December 1 in a double gatefold jacket with two pull-out posters.
