Doug Paisley to release new album in January 2014

Doug Paisley will release his much-anticipated new album Strong Feelings in the UK on January 20, 2014 (no Quarter Records). With the kind of understatement that’s typical of the man, Paisley describes the new record as “just 10 new songs. It’s a lot less simple and unadorned than other recordings I’ve made, but it’s just as earnest and straightforward as what I’ve done before.”

This is all in keeping with the Toronto songwriter’s low-key approach to his art, preferring to let his songs speak for themselves. A fact borne out by the nature of the effusive praise given to Paisley’s last effort, 2010’s Constant Companion. MOJO, who included it in their top ten albums of the year and extolled its “rare kind of purity”, declared that “an anti-star is born”. Rolling Stone called it a “nearly perfect singer-songwriter record”, while UNCUT singled it out as “sure-footed and ageless…uncluttered, sad and unerringly lovely.”

A new song from the forthcoming album – ‘Song My Love Can Sing’ – is available to stream now (via Pitchfork)
