Published Aug 08, 2012Jenn Grant just announced plans to tour Canada this fall with Cuff the Duke, and now the Halifax songwriter has revealed that the outing will be in support of a new album. Entitled The Beautiful Wild, it will be out on September 25 through Six Shooter Records.
According to a press release, this LP finds Grant "[following] love's twisted, tangled path deep into the heart's jungle. The new record is about finding the courage to lose oneself in the wilderness, in all of its savage and sublime experiences."
Guests include Old Man Luedecke, Rose Cousins, Kinley Dowling (Hey Rosetta!, the Express), David Christensen (the Heavy Blinkers) and the Halifax Boys Honour Choir, while the musical arrangements feature harp, flute and sitar. The slow-burning pop rock cut "In the Belly of a Dragon" is streaming at the bottom of the page.
