The Tragically Hip to release new album ‘Saskadelphia’ tomorrow

They've previewed it with an excerpt of 'Ouch'

Canadian legends The Tragically Hip are set to release a new album tomorrow (May 21st) called Saskadelphia. Today, they’ve previewed the collection with an excerpt of “Ouch.”

The forthcoming record features previously released songs that the band wrote in 1990, and five of them were recorded at their New Orleans Road Apples Sessions. The other tune is a live recording dating back to 2000. According to a press release, “Saskadelphia” is a term that the band created when referring to their extensive touring in the early ’90s.

“I went ‘Wow’ when I heard ‘Ouch’ after all this time,” guitarist Rob Baker explains. “We were a pretty good little band.”

“We didn’t know what was there, so this meant baking them and listening to them as they were being transferred,” drummer Johnny Fay adds. “Hearing them for the first time in 30 years was crazy.”
