Sloan share new single ‘Spend the Day,’ announce forthcoming album ‘Steady’

Sloan have returned with a new single called “Spend the Day.” The track arrives alongside the announcement of their forthcoming album, Steady, out October 21st via murderecords/Universal.

The forthcoming album serves as Sloan’s 13th studio album to date. It’s also set for release on the 30th anniversary of their 1992 debut record, Smeared. Today’s preview, “Spend the Day,” is an amazing powerpop anthem.

“Spend the Day” was written by Sloan guitarist Patrick Pentland, who says the song is “an invitation to join me when I was maybe at my lowest. Hide away with me from everything for a while.”

Listen to “Spend the Day” below.

“They say if you want to go fast go alone but if you want to go far go together,” frontman Chris Murphy explains. “I don’t know if there are many other bands you can name that are still making records with their original lineup 30 years in. Look it up!”

Check out the tracklist for Steady below.

Steady Tracklist:

01 – “Magical Thinking”
02 – “Spend the Day”
03 – “She Put Up with What She Put Down”
04 – “Human Nature”
05 – “Scratch the Surface”
06 – “Panic on Runnymede”
07 – “Dream It All Over Again”
08 – “Nice Work If You Can Get It”
09 – “Simply Leaving”
10 – “Close Encounters”
11 – “I Dream of Sleep”
12 – “Keep Your Name Alive”

“Recording this album had its challenges due the unusual circumstances of the past two years,” Sloan explain. “Lockdowns meant stops and starts in the recording process and we were often unable to be together in the studio, even in pairs. However, this band has worked through years where members lived in different cities than each other, so even back in the ’90’s we had to adapt to get things done. Slowly but surely, we were able to finish 12 songs worthy of inclusion in our catalogue, which currently sits north of 250 songs!!!”
