Published Jan 13, 2020Sarah Harmer's forthcoming Are You Gone is one of our Most Anticipated Albums of 2020, and ahead of the effort's arrival, the songwriter has shared another new track.
Harmer has shared album opener "St. Peter's Bay," which you can hear below. Her latest, which follows the previously shared "New Low," is said to be a love letter to "wilderness and the depth of human feeling."
"I wrote 'St. Peter's Bay' on the plane to Prince Edward Island for a Hockey Day In Canada theatre show, but the hockey part is only a prompt," Harmer explained in a statement. "The song is about the end of a relationship, set against the frozen shoreline of Lake Ontario. I thought what better way to start the record than with black and white pioneer era sound, and a tale of love burning down to its final ember."
Are You Gone is set to arrive on February 21 via Arts & Crafts, marking Harmer's first new album in 10 years. She's set to take the album on tour across Canada that same month.
