Terra Lightfoot "New Mistakes"

Acclaimed Canadian singer-songwriter Terra Lightfoot has announced the release of her upcoming full-length album, New Mistakes, on October 13th via Sonic Unyon Records with pre-orders available today. Need a taste of the new album? Watch the Dustin Rabin-directed (Paul McCartney, Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Billy Talent) video for “Paradise” below. 

“Paradise” is about letting go of perfection in love,” says Lightfoot. “It’s not wrestling with the problems and missteps in our relationships but embracing them. I think it’s a more realistic way to look at love and it gives me some comfort to know I’m not standing there with rose-coloured glasses on. ’Paradise’ actually started out as a different song called ‘Thunder’ that was a huge hit at our shows. On the last day of tracking the record, I had this crazy idea that I wanted to change the words because I wasn’t happy with all of them, so I set up a pillow fort and a guitar in the tracking room, went to work… and ended up with a new verse melody and completely different lyrics. Gus and Werner liked the new verse so much they said, ‘Okay, now go write a chorus to match that verse’ — and ‘Paradise’ was born!”

Produced by Gus van Go and Werner F, New Mistakes is a heady journey. As poignant as it is rollicking and vulnerable as it is rowdy, it cruises long and sometimes lonesome highways that lead everywhere from brokedown dive bars and endless prairie skies to mountain ranges and the Mojave Desert.

This fall, Lightfoot will add another run of tour dates across Canada supporting Bruce Cockburn and Whitehorse. Full tour dates can be found below.
