Ron Sexsmith tours with Nick Lowe, unveils Strategy in July
Exit Strategy of the Soul may be Ron Sexsmith’s first release via Yep Roc, but the album is his 10th solo project to date.
And though July 8 may seem worlds away from April, to help pass the time, Sexsmith has already started a spring tour with Nick Lowe. The tour began in Boulder, Colo., on April 15. Meanwhile, because he was in town, Sexsmith attended Feist’s set at Vanderbilt University’s Rites of Spring on Saturday. During her performance, she played “Secret Heart” from his self-titled album, which also was on her sophomore release Let it Die.
Sexsmith's new album features a reworked version of a track he co-wrote with Feist, “Brandy Alexander.” Exit, which was recorded in Havana and London, integrates elegantly placed horns and strings within Sexsmith’s classic arrangements. Catch him at one of his remaining live dates, or count down the days until he makes his Exit.
