Gord Sinclair’s debut solo album, ‘Taxi Dancers’ is set for release February 28.

The former Tragically Hip bassist announced this week, he’d made the record while processing the loss of his good friend and bandmate Gord Downie, who lost his battle with brain cancer in late 2017.

A press release has described the album as “a farewell of sorts, fearlessly exploring Sinclair’s despair about losing a lifelong friend and bandmate. But it is also a clear-eyed survey of what’s good in the world, and a profound statement about why sorrow must be viewed in tandem with joy.”

“I never aspired to be a solo artist. After Gord died, it was like, ‘Wow I don’t know if I am ever going to do this again’ but I really missed making music.” Sinclair explained.

Taxi Dancers will be available February 28.

Check out the first two singles, “It’s Already Too Late” and “In The Next Life” below.
