Published Aug 19, 2020Donovan Woods is returning with a new full-length album. Titled Without People, the Canadian folk artist's latest arrives on November 6.
The record marks the follow-up to 2018's Both Ways, which in 2019 was also reimagined as The Other Way. It was recorded remotely by Woods and his backing musicians during lockdown, with those including Katie Pruitt, Tucker Beathard, Tom Douglas and Ashley Monroe.
As Rolling Stone reports, the album also comes as the songwriter rolls out the Donovan Woods with People Project to support creators in marginalized communities from North America, the U.K., Sweden and Kenya, among other countries. For the project, Woods will be working with various creators to craft an interpretation of each song on the record via such mediums as dance, illustration/design and painting.
