Co-frontman of Canadian rock band Blue Rodeo, Greg Keelor is getting ready to drop his third solo record. Aphrodite Rose is set to hit stores on October 10.
Being a member of one of Canada's best musical exports, Keelor has had the opportunity to work with some other great Canadian artists. On the new record he enlisted the help of Canadian indie rock band The Sadies as well as Canadian songstress Sarah McLachlan.
While getting help to write some new tunes, Keelor also looked back and put some older tunes on the record. Tunes like "If You Go," which was supposed to be on a former Blue Rodeo record or "Glory Oh," which began as a love poem to an old love, have made it onto the new release.
Here's what will be on the record:
No Man's Land
Steal Your Mind
Colour and Rhyme
If You Go
In The Reflections
