Published Nov 02, 2015Canadian singer-songwriter David Picco is set to release his fourth album Start Again next week, but before it officially lands, Exclaim! is streaming the new record in its entirety.
The title reflects Picco's mindset about the new material; after recording and touring out of Toronto for the last 12 years, Start Again marked a return to his home of St. John's and a creative rebirth. With a backing band comprising fine local musicians, Picco adopted a more "eclectic rock sound" on the new material, using guitars to tell stories about embracing a new phase in life.
From the driving rock jangle of opener "Baby, I'm Gone Away" through groove-laden jams like "Today Never Knows" and bluesy ballads like "Martha Mansfield" to the soulful twang of closer "Something in Mind," Start Again gives listeners a little bit of everything.
Hear it for yourself in the player below before it gets an official release on November 6.
