Ron Sexsmith announces new album

Friday, February 24, 2017: Three-time Juno award winner Ron Sexsmith has today revealed details about his new album, The Last Rider.  Scheduled for release on Friday, April 21, this, Ron’s thirteenth studio recording was co-produced at The Bathouse Studios in Kingston, Ontario by longtime drummer and collaborator Don Kerr and Sexsmith. The album is his first album to include Ron’s touring band.

“At this point, it’s just second nature for me to write short, melodic songs that say everything I want to say,” says Sexsmith. “But having my band totally involved on this album maybe brought out more in the songs than on other recent albums. It felt special, anyway.”

In addition to album release details, Ron has also today announced the dates for his upcoming Canadian tour. Every concert ticket purchased for Ron Sexsmith’s The Last Rider tour will include a digital copy of his new album The Last Rider.  Beginning today, fans who purchase concert tickets [hyperlink] or pre-order The Last Rider from iTunes [hyperlink] or on CD/LP from Ron’s Official Store [hyperlink] prior to the album’s April 21 release, will receive five new songs instantly including the single “Radio”.
