Music  |  Audio

Since 2010’s acclaimed Constant Companion, Toronto-based singer-songwriter Doug Paisley has performed for countless audiences and continuously won fans for his 70s-inspired sound. Now, he returns with forthcoming album Strong Feelings, a 10-song collection of original work recorded largely in Toronto in an analog studio.

Strong Feelings features plenty of collaborators, including Emmett Kelly (The Cairo Gang) on guitar, Bazil Donovan on bass, Gary Craig on drums and Robbie Grunwaldon keys, along with an appearance from Canadian vocalist Mary Margaret O’Hara. As anticipation builds for the album’s January release, Paisley has premiered a new track from the album, “What’s Up Is Down.”

Listen to “What’s Up Is Down” in the player below. Strong Feelings is set for release on Jan. 21.
