Almost a year after releasing Morning Comes, part one in a two part album project, Cuff the Duke is releasing part two. Scheduled to hit shelves in Canada via Paper Bag Records on October 2nd, Union will be related to Morning Comes in a lyrical and thematic sense, but according to lead vocalist and guitarist Wayne Petti, the new album is more electronic based, whereas their past five albums have been on the acoustic side. It also features guest vocals from Basia Bulat.
The band recorded a Paper Bag Session for a new tune off the album called “Side By Side”, it’s our weekly feature.
