Gord Downie‘s new double album Introduce Yerself was released today, and a video documenting the recording session for the final cut, The North, has been produced.
“A lot of these I wrote the words in advance,” he says in the video. “Like poems. I’d get one or two a day and then I’d have to stop. Because that’s about all … the soul or whatever, would give up. And then, so with music, it becomes pretty easy.”
Thank you for everything, Gord.
