From Gord Downie’s official website.
Gord Downie announces Introduce Yerself,a double-album of twenty-three new songs.
The music was recorded swiftly over two four-day sessions in January 2016 and February 2017, with the final album often reflecting first takes.
Introduce Yerself continues the collaborative relationship that last year brought the music of Downie’s historic Secret Path to life, with Drew producing the album and co-writing a number of the new songs.
Video directors Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier have put together a short video clip below.
Introduce Yerself has been available for preorder since Friday, September 29 in Double Vinyl, CD, and Download formats via the offical Gord Downie store.
The album will be released on CD and digital on October 27. The vinyl will be in stores December 1 in a double gatefold jacket with two pull-out posters.

This final solo album Mr. Downie spent his final months working on has been described as “a strikingly intimate record of an artist processing the shock of his own mortality.”
Similar to the likes of David Bowie, and Leonard Cohen who had albums released after their passing.
I ask you this: When was the last time you bought an album?
How awesome would it be to see Gord top the charts!
