"Spoon stares down the abyss and walks away alive, celebrating that survival with a wonderfully vital blend of electronic beats, rock-band dynamics, and uplifting brass." - The Straight

"Spoon is well known for their insightful and introspective lyrics, and their new album is initiating the conversation that we need to be having about mental health." - Femme Art Review

"Mental Health is just eight songs long, but it promises to trace Spoon's personal journey with their own mental health, covering everything from insomnia to intergenerational trauma in the best way possible: incredible indie pop from one of the country's
most underrated artists." -
CBC Music

“Rae Spoon is one of the most important musicians working in Canada today.” – Now Magazine

“The mark of a gifted songwriter is the ability to create the most emotion with the fewest notes. Rae Spoon is a master of restraint, conveying both hope and hurt at once through
simple melodies.”

Today, non-binary musician Rae Spoon is sharing another new track from their upcoming LP, Mental Health. “Money” is about “the least talked about aspect of the mental health system which is that it’s almost impossible to receive positive treatment without personal money,” says Spoon. “The mental health epidemic is due to a lack of allocation of funding by governments. I wrote it about the cycles that occur when people don’t have resources.”

Mental Health is the tenth full-length album from Rae Spoon and is the culmination of eighteen years of releasing records and touring internationally. Rae is known for giving a voice to perspectives that are not as often heard. Due out August 16 on Coax Records, the album traces their personal journey with mental health through eight indie-pop songs. From inter-generational trauma to losing people to suicide the issues raised are more than surface deep and ask hard questions about how to cope with mental pain. The album was recorded at the Noise Floor on Gabriola Island with members of the Pack AD and fuses rock drums and guitar with Rae’s enigmatic voice.

Today, non-binary musician Rae Spoon is sharing another new track from their upcoming LP, Mental Health. “Blaring” is a beautiful duet with co-writer Northcote. The song talks about the distance that happens in relationships when communication fails. The combination of the two singer’s voices is something remarkable and together they create the feeling of being lonely even though you're with the person you love.

"Blaring” was “one of those wonderful surprises that come out of co-writing a song,” says Spoon. “Northcote and I sat down for an hour or so and this song felt like it came out of nowhere in an easy way. I loved singing with him on the record as well."

The album was recorded at the Noise Floor on Gabriola Island with members of the Pack AD and fuses rock drums and guitar with Rae’s enigmatic voice.

The first single from the LP, “I Can’t Sleep” is a pop song about insomnia and features singer Becky Black from the Pack AD. Rae says about the song: “I like to write songs about things that happen to me, but I haven’t heard a lot of songs directly about it. Like so many people, I struggle with insomnia and there’s something other-wordly about being awake when everyone else is asleep. I try to take the listener to that world with the music.”
