81-year old Canadian music legend Gordon Lightfoot will release ‘Solo’, his first album in 16 years in March.
Gordon’s Facebook page featured the announcement:
Canada’s most celebrated songwriter, and international folk legend Gordon Lightfoot has announced today his new album, SOLO, available everywhere March 20th.
In the making of SOLO, Lightfoot discovered a treasure trove of unreleased material in his Toronto home. The songs were written in late 2001 and early 2002, just before he suffered a near-fatal abdominal aortic aneurysm later that year.
Gordon Lightfoot’s first hit in Australia was ‘If I Could Read Your Mind’ in 1971.
Sundown was a no 4 hit for Gordon in 1974.
