Time Out For Tomorrow: Deluxe Edition comes with a download of 18 bonus tracks featuring unreleased songs, demos and live cuts. You’ll also get a signed promo poster, cool sticker and a flexi-disc record of the outtake/single “Jumped In The Humber”. The Deluxe comes with and without the original TOFT vinyl (for those who may have the record already but what the great extras). Time Out For Tomorrow was originally released in November, 2019, produced by Michael Timmins of Cowboy Junkies and released on their label, Latent Recordings. It received acclaim from Rolling Stone, Uncut, American Songwriter, Bluegrass Situation, Exclaim, AmericanaUK and from fellow Canadian songwriters Ron Sexsmith and Doug Paisley. After a packed hometown release show at Lee’s Palace in Toronto, we were set to tour Europe and the UK again. These tours have been rescheduled for Spring 2022 and in the meantime I’ve been staying busy putting out these releases, my first book of poetry back in October (Just The Night Birds) and of course, lots and lots of writing for when we can begin work on the next record.
Time Out For Tomorrow: Deluxe Edition is exclusively available in the official online store.
Songs From The Apartment was originally released as a surprise digital album March 20th, 2020, at the beginning of the first Toronto lockdown. It was nice calming experience putting this collection of recordings together, all of which were recorded with one microphone at home as demonstrations. Most of these songs were written and recorded within hours and then forgotten about. It captures me at my most relaxed and uninhibited. You can hear cars going by, pages turning, slightly out of tune instruments, it’s a real raw and intimate listening experience and has turned into one of my favourite albums in my discography. I’m so happy to have made a small run of this record, not just on vinyl but on beautiful translucent red vinyl. The artwork has been newly designed by Jonny Desilva from the original design and specifically mastered for vinyl by James Paul at The Rogue Studio in Toronto (tracks originally cleaned up by Aaron Comeau). The vinyl edition also includes the extra track (and single) “Sweep It Under the Rug”.
