BLUE RODEO ANNOUNCES TRACKLISTING FOR IN OUR NATURE
Band’s 13th album to be released Tuesday, October 29, 2013


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Tuesday, September 24, 2013 – 26 years after the release of their first album, Warner Music Canada recording artists Blue Rodeo prove that their creativity continues to bloom as they announce a plethora of information regarding the release of their 13th studio album. Titled In Our Nature, the album is scheduled for release on Tuesday, October 29, 2013. The striking artwork adorning the cover is a hand drawn painting created by Jud Haynes.

In Our Nature was produced by Blue Rodeo, primarily at Greg Keelor’s farm studio, Lost Cause. While at Keelor’s farm, the band had each musician set up and perform in separate rooms around the house giving the record a very warm and communal character.

“Recording at Greg's farm was key to the groove of this record,” says Jim Cuddy. “I was a little unsure at the beginning whether it was a good idea to encamp at Greg's as we have a great studio downtown [The Woodshed]. But by the time we got comfortable at Greg's, after a few days, it was obvious that being in his farmhouse and being surrounded by the great outdoors was having such a positive effect on the collective spirit. It was very unifying.”

Blue Rodeo has been previewing new songs live for their fans during recent tour dates while selected recordings from the album have been posted on the band’s website, www.bluerodeo.com, over the past month.

“Doing a lot of touring while making this record helped a lot,” says Greg Keelor. “Everybody was getting along and the band was playing well together. I think it's a good crop of songs and everyone just played it right and they played it beautifully.”

With the addition of guitarist/singer Colin Cripps to the Blue Rodeo line-up, the band is now a seven piece; Jim Cuddy (vocals/guitar), Greg Keelor (vocals/guitar), Bazil Donovan (bass), Glenn Milchem (drums/vocals), Bob Egan (guitar/pedal steel, mandolin), Mike Boguski (keyboards), Colin Cripps (guitar / vocals).
