Gord Downie’s double solo album was released yesterday (October 27th, 2017) at midnight.
‘Introduce Yerself’ features 23 new songs, was recorded in just 4 days (!!!), and was produced by Broken Social Scene ringleader Kevin Drew.
Check out the video below where Gord shares his creative process and the inspiration behind his new music (Downie says that each of the 23 songs on the record are about a person).
Each song is like wrapping yourself in a warm, cozy blanket. Consider it a final gift from Mr. Downie.
You can now stream the entire album (see below).
The Canadian musical icon passed away on October 17 from glioblastoma, an incurable form of brain cancer.
He was 53 years old.
<3 RIP Gord Downie
