By Josiah HughesAs we reported late last year, Canadian alt-country queen Carolyn Mark has been hard at work on a collaborative album with country band NQ Arbuckle. Now, the album has been given a release date and a tracklisting, for your anticipating pleasure.
Titled Let's Just Stay Here, the album is due for release on October 13 via Mint Records. It features 12 tracks, six of which were written by Mark, three by NQ Arbuckle head Neville Quinlan, and three covers.
While a joint tour between Mark and the band is in its planning stages, the dates have yet to be announced. In the meantime, Mark is heading out on her own sprawling Canadian tour throughout August. Most of the dates include support from Exclaim! faves $100 and Irish rockers Sun Bear .
