Published Jun 08, 2012Having released the live album A House Concert last year, East Coast songwriter Christina Martin will be giving her fans an assortment of brand new material when she releases her new full-length Sleeping with a Stranger this summer. It comes out digitally on June 26 and in stores on July 10 via Martin's own Come Undone Records.
The 12-song collection was produced by Martin's husband, Dale Murray, at their studio in Port Howe, NS. According to a press release, "It reflects the artist's lyrical and musical coming of age."
See the tracklist below, and scroll to the bottom of the page to hear the countrified folk rock tune "Marina." The song is apparently about someone who Martin knew during her time living in Austin.
In the coming months, Martin will play a number of shows in Canada's eastern half, largely in the Atlantic provinces. Her schedule is below the tracklist.
