Jeen Gets Ian Blurton and Brendan Canning for New Album

Canadian alt-pop songwriter Jeen is gearing up for a new album. Simply called Jeen, the record arrives on October 9, and the artist born Jeen O'Brien once again roped in some notable helping hands.

The self-tiled album was co-produced by Change of Heart/C'mon hero Ian Blurton, who also plays guitar on the album, while Broken Social Scene's Brendan Canning provides bass. Rounding out the lineup for the album, Stephan Szczesniak plays drums, with Ben O'Brien on additional bass, Jeff Heisholt on synths and Kevin Fox on strings. 

To give us an idea what's in store, Jeen has shared the new track "Deep End," which has arrived alongside a lyric video done by Stephen Hutchins.

In a statement, Jeen said the following of the teaser track:

"Deep End" comes from a darker place than its bright vibe implies... a bit like smiling when really you feel like shit. I wrote it in a last-minute realization that we needed more songs to round out the album, so I felt defeated and tired and consequently that's all I could write about that day. Since it was a last-minute addition, my brother Ben O'Brien couldn't make it back into the studio to play bass, so I called in my old friend Brendan Canning who came in for us.

Jeen's most recent album arrived in 2018 with Gift Shop.
