Kiefer Sutherland Shares A New Single 'Bloor Street'
15 October 2021
It's The Title Track To His New Album, Which Follows On January 21st
After announcing details of his upcoming third album ‘Bloor Street’ as well as an extensive UK and European tour, Kiefer Sutherland today shares the album’s new single and title track, along with its full tracklist. The song received its exclusive first play earlier this week, courtesy of Bob Harris at Radio 2. The ‘Bloor Street’ album will be released on January 21st via a new deal with Cooking Vinyl.
The ‘Bloor Street’ single provides a taste of what to expect from the album. A serene country-tinged rock ballad, ‘Bloor Street’ finds Kiefer reflecting on his time growing up in Toronto, Canada, taking in the rush of the city alongside its biting winds and iconic skyline. The details are specific to the city, but the broader meaning is universal: wherever we grow up inevitably plays a part in shaping our future.
The single is released alongside an accompanying video. Directed by Tom Kirk at Hidden Road Studios, it extends the song’s poignant sense of nostalgia. Interspersed between cuts of Kiefer’s performance of the track are a montage of images of snapshots from Toronto’s history. That tender mood is enriched by personal photographs of Kiefer, dating all the way back to childhood.
Kiefer says, “They say you can never go home. This song, for me, says in your heart you never leave.”
The ‘Bloor Street’ album presents a rich variety of sounds. ‘Two Stepping In Time’ ups the tempo as Kiefer steps boldly into heartland rock territory to tell a story of a love that changes everything - a theme which he extends with both ‘So Full Of Love’ and ‘Chasing The Rain’. There are bigger surprises elsewhere, with the surprisingly tender ‘County Jail Gate’ telling the tale of a life-long criminal who can’t stay out of prison, while the brighter production of ‘Goodbye’ struts with a swaggering Stax R&B groove. Kiefer brings the curtain down on the album with ‘Down The Line’, a touching duet which brings heartache and hope in equal measure.
The album was produced and mixed by the multiple Grammy Award winner Chris Lord-Alge (Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood), and recorded at PLYRZ Studios in Los Angeles. It was then mastered by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound.
‘Bloor Street’ is available to pre-order here. A range of limited edition signed ‘Bloor Street’ bundles are available, while formats include CD, black vinyl, a limited edition transparent orange vinyl, and an orange cassette. Two new variants are also launched today: a vinyl that’s exclusive to HMV, and a signed CD that’s only available via Amazon.
