Stream the Tragically Hip's 'Saskadelphia'
Published May 20, 2021Arriving just in time for a long weekend in Canada, the Tragically Hip's new record Saskadelphia is here. You can stream the six-song release in the players below.
Out now through Universal Music Canada, Saskadelphia features six previously unreleased tracks written by the band in 1990.
Five of the selections were recorded during sessions for sophomore LP Road Apples, while live cut "Montreal" was captured during a 2000 performance at the titular city's Molson Centre (now the Bell Centre). Its original studio recording has yet to be uncovered.
As for the record's title, the hippest of Hip fans will point out Saskadelphia as the original working title of Road Apples, coined by the band in reference to their extensive tour plans of the era, and rejected by label execs for being "too Canadian."
