Happy Canada Cay From Ron Sexsmith!

"Exit strategy of the soulâ to be released in Canada on July 1

Play âWhat would Ron Sayâ on and win a trip to London, England in the Fall

Warner Music Canada is pleased to celebrate Canada Day with the release of âExit Strategy of the Soul,â the ninth album from Canadaâs own National treasure Ron Sexsmith.

The new disc sees Ron working once again working with Swedish-born, London based producer Martin Terefe, who worked on Sexsmithâs 2004âs Juno-Award winning âRetriever." The 14-track album recorded in both London and Havana, finds Sexsmith at his most soulful, encompassing the gamut of human emotions with such songs as the horn-drenched âThis is How I Know,â the aching âHard Times,â the playful âBrandy Alexanderâ (his first recorded co-write will fellow Canadian Leslie Feist) and the buoyantly humanistic âBrighter Stillâ. "Exit Strategy of the Soulâ is brilliantly bookended by a pair of evocative instrumentals âSpiritudeâ and âDawn Anna." Torontoâs influential weekly alternative news and entertainment source Now Magazine, rated âExit Strategy of the Soulâ NNNN and named it âDisc of the Week."

Fans can preview 4 new tracks on the newly-revamped by playing the exciting new lyric game âWhat Would Ron Say." Hosted by Ron Sexsmith himself, fans can possibly win a trip to see ron perform in London, England in the Fall. Contestants are asked to fill in the blanks of Ronâs lyrics from a list of words provided. Each time a contestant successfully completes the lyrics to a song, they automatically unlock another new track. After completing the lyrics for all 4 tracks, fans will be entered into a draw for the trip to London, England.
