Oh Susanna to Release New Full-length in April
The disc contains 11 songs, plus one bonus track that will be an online exclusive. Go here to download the first single "Drunk as a Sailor," a harmony-laden cut that is much more peaceful than the title would suggest.
The collection took more than a year to record with producer David Travers-Smith. Oh Susanna is supported on the album by a band that includes members of Blue Rodeo and Weeping Tile.
Later this month, Oh Susanna will head down to Texas for an appearance at SXSW. In April, she will hit the road with Hawksley Workman for a series of dates in Ontario. Scroll past the tracklist to see the schedule.

1. "Drunk as a Sailor"
