Canadian superstar Corey Hart took the world by storm with his 1984 hit, "Sunglasses At Night". Now, thirty years later, he will end his performing career on his own terms with the release of one last Corey Hart album, Ten Thousand Horses – his first album in 16 years, now available on iTunes. The album’s title track features a duet with acclaimed songstress Jane Siberry while the French version, “Dix Mille Chevaux,” pairs Hart with his wife, Quebec singer Julie Masse.
Corey will appear and perform with his wife, platinum recording artist, Julie Masse, on TVA Québec’s La Voix this Sunday, April 13th. Then on May 31st, in what is being billed as a concert for the ages, Corey will perform one last concert at a sold out arena show at Montreal’s Bell Centre.
¨A true career for me has always been defined by a body of work not possibly accomplished over one or two seasons,” says Corey. “Much like a river´s flow, it never stays the same because it’s never still - always shaping on the move, widening or deepening, coursing its way through land, ploughing a valley of new creations.”Ed Sheeran Unviels Highly Anticipated New Single, "Sing"!

After more than four years in the making, Paolo Nutini's new album, Caustic Love, is now available to stream on iTunes.
