Joel Plaskett and his father Bill are showcasing family Solidarity on their upcoming joint album, and they’ve just teased the upcoming release with a single titled “The Next Blue Sky.”
The new song follows the album’s previously shared title track, and Joel explains that it’s a song about the Maritime mindset of looking to the west for greener, more hopeful pastures.
“Go west, they say,” he said in a statement. “That’s been the story out east for years. Chasing some work, a safe haven, or the next blue sky. Or maybe just to get out from the shadows cast by the glassy trade centre they dropped on Argyle Street. The march of progress is no parade.”
In addition to the father-son duo’s previously announced live shows, the Plasketts will also perform on April 8 at Toronto’s storied Massey Hall. The show will be captured on film for the ongoing Live at Massey Hall series, and tickets are available here. [READ MORE]
