Entering his 25th year as a recording artist, Ron Sexsmith returns in 2020 with a new album called ‘Hermitage‘. It was recorded in Sexsmith’s living room in his new home of Stratford Ontario, having moved from longtime residence in Toronto. The album was produced by Don Kerr, and, remarkably, other than drums Rom Sexsmith plays all the instruments as well as delivering his trademark thoughtful lyrics. ‘Hermitage’ will be out on April 17th. Before that, though, Ron Sexsmith has the first single out.
It’s a song called ‘You Don’t Wanna Hear it‘, and it’s about, says Sexsmith “someone who has their nose all out of joint about something and are not in the mood to hear the truth“. You can listen to it right now. And if this isn’t enough excitement then just hold on – there’s more in the shape of a tour of the UK in June this very year. Pretty cool – and dates are below the song video.
June 4th London Cadogan Hall
June 5th Cambridge Junction
June 7th Manchester Royal Northern Collage of Music
June 8th Glasgow Cottier
June 9th Dublin Liberty Hall
Have been looking forward to this since he last toured in 2017 – can’t get enough of his self effacing live banter – his songs are always pretty much perfect – the big question though is ‘will pink feather boas be up for slae from the merch desk?’.
