Independent Vancouver folk-pop troubadour Daniel Moir is just about to put his new Monday Morning LP in stores and will celebrate his latest self-released album with a quick stretch of Western concert dates.
The eight-song follow-up to 2010's Road arrives October 1, and press material explains that Moir went hands-on with the release, writing and arranging the tracks and handling most instrument duties. He additionally had a hand in the album's production, mixing and engineering, though he got some assistance from producer Russell Broom (Jann Arden, Sam Roberts) and co-engineer David Kean (Björk, Audities Foundation).
"It's a bit surreal to me, and I'm very pleased with the result," Moir said in a statement. "It feels like an enormous release of thoughts, philosophies, pains and joys collected over the past three years. I can't wait to show it to you. It's always a bit strange to expose something so personal to the world, but it's something I feel like most musicians feel they have no choice in doing. I'm sure artists of any nature feel the same way."
