It was just announced that Gord Downie, legendary frontman of The Tragically Hip, will be releasing his second consecutive solo album, Introduce Yerself.
The album will be released on October 27th by Arts & Crafts. Introduce Yerself was produced by Broken Social Scene’s Kevin Drew, who also co-wrote several tracks.
The tracks were recorded during a pair of four-day studio sessions in January 2016/February 2017, and many of the songs are Downie’s first take on the track. Those are some powerful pipes!
The forthcoming album is described as “74 minutes of Downie’s most personal storytelling.”
This is the second release from Gord Downie since his diagnosis for terminal brain cancer was revealed.
Last October, Downie released the Juno-award winning album, The Secret Path, a multimedia venture based on the story of Chanie Wenjack, who died in 1966 while escaping a residential school.
Keep it up, Gord!
