Published Nov 29, 2018Just over three years from releasing his Great Northern Man LP, Juno-nominated NWT musician Digawolf (a.k.a. Jesse James Gon) has lifted the curtain on a follow-up effort.
Titled Yellowstone, the effort will arrive February 22. Eleven tracks in length, Yellowstone was recorded with producer Jan de Vroede in Aarhus, Denmark, inside a barn converted to a studio for the occasion. The album's artwork, seen above, comes courtesy of Jennifer Walden.
During sessions last year, Diga told CBC that the record would have a "weird, eerie, very homey vibe." Lyrically, Yellowstone features songs in both English and Tłı̨chǫ and is said to "embrace Diga's poetic sensibilities, describing an unknown world in the midst of modernity."
