Published Sep 22, 2011It's been three years since Sarah Slean's last album of original material, but the arty Canuck songstress is finally ready to follow-up 2008's The Baroness. Her new double album Land & Sea will arrive on September 27 via Pheromone Recordings, and she will promote it with a cross-Canada tour this fall.
The new album contains two nine-song discs. The first, Land, was produced by Joel Plaskett and mixed by Gordie Johnson of Big Sugar along with Vic Florencia (Nelly Furtado, Danko Jones). A press release calls it an "unabashed pop album" anchored by a "traditional four-piece rock band."
The more grandiose second disc, Sea, was made with producer/composer Jonathan Goldsmith (Bruce Cockburn, Jenn Grant), and features "a 21-piece string section." See making-of clips over at Slean's YouTube page.
Slean will promote the album with a national Canadian tour that will last for longer than a month. She will be on the road for all of November and into early December, with 18 confirmed dates that stretch as far west as Vancouver Island and as far east as Montreal. An additional show in Red Deer, AB, will be announced soon.
