ABSOLUTExclusive: Great Lake Swimmers Video + Interview

Posted by - 08:38 AM on 03/06/12
Today, Great Lake Swimmers released the second single and title track from their forthcoming album New Wild Everywhere, which is now available here. The band will be shooting an official video for the track, but in the meantime, we are bringing you a special behind the scenes video (filmed by Stephen Chung) that they put together from a recording session at Toronto's Revolution Recording. In addition, we also did an exclusive interview with singer songwriter Tony Dekker regarding the new album. So head to the replies to watch the video footage, as well as their upcoming tour dates, and read the interview here. The new album New Wild Everywhere drops on April 3rd via Nettwerk Records and you can now pre-order it on iTunes. Enjoy.

from the interviewIt’s the 5th GLS album, but our first proper studio album. We recorded it at a new studio in Toronto called Revolution Recording. It was a new challenge for us, because up until now we’ve gotten used to recording everything in fairly unconventional locations using relatively basic setups. Although, we also did three days of recording in a disused TTC subway station for this record, which yielded the song “The Great Exhale” and it ended up making it onto the album. But for the most part, we were working in a closed environment and could really focus on the songs. It was a really positive experience.
