Following the recent release of their new album ‘Songs of the Recollection’ via our friends over at Proper, Cowboy Junkies have announced a UK tour for November 2022 with dates as detailed below. Heralded for their carefully chosen cover versions of songs that have been part of their repertoire from the very beginning, the new album consists of nine covers both newly recorded and curated from previous album projects which we described back in April as a “superb collection of cover versions from alt-country veterans”.
The band’s Michael Timmins recalls: “Long before we were musicians, we were music fans. We didn’t grow up sitting around the kitchen table playing instruments and harmonizing. We grew up sitting around the record player listening to each other’s record collections and having our minds blown. This was the passion that we shared. Our goal has always been to create music that took hold of the listener the way that this music took hold of us. These are some of the songs and some of the artists that found their way into our lives and eventually into our repertoire over the past fifty years.”
The collection features tracks from David Bowie, Neil Young, Gram Parsons, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Gordon Lightfoot, Vic Chesnutt and The Cure. Here are those dates (Tickets on sale now from https://cowboyjunkies.com/tour/):
