The follow-up to 2007’s Spirit If.., Darlings was recorded in Alberta with co-producers Dave Hamelin (The Stills) and Graham Lessard (Stars). The 12-track album features contributions from Charles Spearin and Ohad Benchetrit of Do Make Say Think and Broken Social Scene and Dean Stone of Apostle of Hustle. It includes the singles “Good Sex” and “Mexican Aftershow Party”.
“This record is a celebration of memories,” Drew said in a statement. “It’s about the rise and fall of love and sex, in my own life and in today’s society. This topic has been with me for years. I approached it focused purely on the songwriting, leaving all the tricks and explosions behind. I hope you like it… and if you don’t, give to someone who will.”
