Martha Wainwright Announces Soundtrack Album, Books Canadian Tour
We're still absorbing Martha Wainwright's latest album, Come Home to Mama, which dropped back in October, but the Montreal-born songwriter has already announced a new release and a Canadian tour for 2013.

The new collection is called Trauma: Chansons de la Serie Tele #04. It's a soundtrack for the new season of the francophone medical drama Trauma on Radio-Canada.

The songs will be released one at a time after each weekly episode of Trauma. The first track will hit the web on January 10, with the full album following on February 19. A press release describes the record as an "emotional and moving backdrop" for the program.

As for her Canadian tour, it will last for a little more than a week in March, taking her across the Prairies to the West Coast. The currently confirmed schedule includes eight Canuck shows. See the itinerary below.
