Gord Downie announces Introduce Yerself, a double-album of twenty-three new songs inspired by the people in his life.
Downie worked closely with Kevin Drew of Broken Social Scene, who produced the record and co-wrote a number of songs, continuing a collaborative relationship that brought the music of Downie’s historic Secret Path to life.
Introduce Yerself is seventy-four minutes of Downie’s most personal storytelling, lighted by Drew’s lavish, lo-fi imagination. The album was recorded swiftly over two sessions in January 2016 and Spring 2017.
Introduce Yerself will be available for preorder on Friday, September 29 in Double Vinyl, CD & Download formats in the official Gord Downie store.
The album will be released on CD and digital on October 27. The vinyl will be in stores in a double gatefold jacket with two pull-out posters.
