Today, JUNO Award and Polaris Music Prize nominee, Donovan Woods releases the video for "Next Year", the quietly powerful track off his critically-acclaimed new album Both Ways. An honest reflection of the push-and-pull between putting things off whilst acknowledging the brevity of time, the video's simple and earnest approach features Donovan singing into camera making its message unquestionable.
Rolling Stone Country called the video "a straightforward, urgent message about the myriad ways we tend to put things off until it’s too late."
“A lovely, pensive collection of regrets, joys and humanisms” (Parade), Both Ways was inspired by the works of authors and theorists like Alice Munro and Bronwen Wallace. Donovan, who has amassed over 61 million streams on Spotify alone, is lauded for his sharp and universal song-writing, which has been described as “a very simple beauty” (Entertainment Weekly) and that packs “an emotional wallop” (Billboard). Having cut his teeth penning songs for Tim McGraw, Billy Currington, Charles Kelley, and more, Donovan is a widely respected songwriter in Nashville for his distinct voice and nuanced lyricism..
With his band, The Opposition, Donovan kicks off his fall tour on September 22 with stops throughout Ontario and the East Coast. Full tour dates can be found below.
