Polaris Music Prize shortlisters and JUNO winners, The Sadies have announced their 10th studio album, Northern Passages.
The album, which is set for release on Feb. 10th via Dine Alone, is now available to pre-order digitally HERE, with a physical pre-order available HERE.
The band also shared a brand new single “It’s Easy (Like Walking”, which featured indie rock maestro Kurt Vile. Stream it below.
Of the track, The Sadies’ Dallas Good says, “Kurt did a tour supporting The Sadies about a thousand years ago. We didn’t really know each other before that but we’ve been friends ever since. We always talked about collaborating one day so I forced his hand by sending him this finished song with a very short deadline attached. He delivered, as he always seems to do.”
Recorded in the basement of Dallas and Travis’ parents’ home north of Toronto over the winter of 2015, the familiar surroundings and lack of distractions resulted in a consistent feel, despite the eclecticism at the heart of The Sadies’ sound. The psych-folk flourishes on tracks such as “Riverview Fog” are no mere homage; this is the sound of our inscrutable world, and how we manage to survive in it.
The band heads on a Ontario and East Coast tour supporting Blue Rodeo kicking off in Toronto on February 2nd. See below for all upcoming tour dates.
