Inspired, Heartfelt New Album
Ever After the Farewell Out April 6
New Tour Dates Announced
Royal Wood on “Something About You” – This was the very first song I wrote for the new album, Ever After the Farewell. It was a magical moment and the song came through me as if it was always meant to be.
Multi nominated JUNO singer songwriter Royal Wood has released the gorgeous new video to “Something About You,” the first track off his forthcoming album, Ever After the Farewell, out April 6. You can watch the video via Exclaim here. The video was shot at Toronto’s Massey Hall, one of Canada’s most prominent music venues. “Being able to perform and film this video on this historic and iconic stage was a dream come true,” Wood says. He will be performing at Massey Hall on May 11.
The majority of Ever After The Farewell was written and recorded in London with co-producer Jamie Scott (known for work with Rag’n Bone Man, Ron Sexsmith, Niall Horan and Ed Sheeran) in Terry Britten’s State of the Ark studio (Terry wrote hits for Tina Turner, Lenny Kravitz, and Michael Jackson), the album is not only deeply inspired by both loss and love, but is an ode to the classic styles of both Tin Pan Alley and Laurel Canyon.
To capture the rawest possible sound, most of the songs on the album were recorded the day they were written, with Royal playing the majority of the instruments. With songs like the McCartney-esque “The Hardest Thing Of All,” or the Van Morrison infused “Something About You,” the record is a timeless collection of tales of love, loss, and life. While his new album stands firmly on the shoulders of giants, it is truly a Royal Wood original and will go down as one of the best of his career.
About Royal Wood: Since being proclaimed “Songwriter of the Year” by iTunes, Wood has continued to evolve and hone his musical craft – maintaining an unmistakable identity while uncovering and reinventing his sound. Wood has two albums that have debuted in the Top 30 in Canada, multiple JUNO nominations and a #1 added song at Hot AC radio. His songs have been heard on high profile sync placements like Grey’s Anatomy, and Private Practice.
