Great Lake Swimmers Reveal Acoustic Version of 'The Waves, the Wake' LP
Hear the new version of "In a Certain Light"
Published Sep 20, 2019Great Lake Swimmers have announced an acoustic interpretation of their 2018 album The Waves, The Wake. It's out November 8.
"There were a handful of demos from the album recording that were very scaled back and stark," singer-songwriter Tony Dekker said in a statement. "I recorded a few more with producer Joe Lapinski — those turned out so well that we decided to do a full album of acoustic versions from The Waves, The Wake. No frills, no weighty production, just voice and guitar. It's meant to be a companion piece to our latest release."
The band have teased the upcoming acoustic album with a video for the new version of "In a Certain Light," which was recorded in Sleeping Giant Provincial Park.
See that, as well as the full tracklisting for The Waves, the Wake, below.
A limited-edition vinyl version of the album is available for pre-order. It features original artwork by Geoff Farnsworth.
