Hey all!
First of all, thank you to everyone who has been listening and digging the new album Time Out For Tomorrow. It’s been out for almost two weeks here in Canada and overseas. It gets its physical release in the US tomorrow, Friday November 22nd. Many thanks to popular US music website The Bluegrass Situation for sharing the closing track “Tomorrow In My Mind.” Check it out here:

We’ve had a lot of great reviews for the record so far, I’m very grateful that more people are getting into this record. Rolling Stone in Europe gave it a 4.5/5 and calls it a masterpiece, in addition to UK’s UNCUT featuring me in their Nov issue, they have also given the album a great review for their January issue saying “The admirably prolific Leger’s 12th album in 15 years finds him further honing the articulate, hookladen Americana… this is from the top drawer… Leger charts a persuasive course along warm, laconic roads previously travelled by Glen Campbell and Nick Lowe.” AmericanaUK gave it a 9/10 calling it masterful. Plus Hamburg’s Sounds & Books, Glasgow’s Blabber’n’Smoke, the UK’s Rocking Magpie, Italy’s Roots Highway and Canada’s Exclaim! calls it “a beautifully crafted folk rock record.”

I’ve also done a few interviews discussing the new album that you can read:
