Published Mar 07, 2011Where does Daniel Romano find the time? Not only does he play in Attack in Black and Daniel, Fred & Julie, but the Canuck songwriter is also a producer and label boss. What's more, he released his solo debut less than a year ago. Now, he's already getting ready to drop his sophomore solo set, Sleep Beneath the Willow, which is due out April 5 via You've Changed.
A press release says that the record "mixes timeless songwriting with late '60s, AM country arrangements," adding that it will contain "flourishes of fiddle, honky-tonk guitar, banjo and sweeping harmonies."
Among other guests, the album features vocals from Misha Bower of Bruce Peninsula. In keeping with Romano's love of backwards-looking folk music, these 11 tracks "are stories of regret, sorrow, love and yearning: the stuff of life."
See the tracklist below and the album cover above. Go here for a free download of the opening cut, "Time Forgot (to Change My Heart)."
Romano will also be embarking upon a brief Ontario tour in April to promote the release. Scroll past the tracklist for the schedule
