What better way to release Heart On My Sleeve than through an up-close-and-personal house concert that we can share with people everywhere?
Manitoba's hardest-working musician, Don Amero, is currently on the road for his fall tour. But before he left his hometown of Winnipeg, Amero dropped CBC Music an exclusive cut off his yet-to-be-released fourth album, Heart On My Sleeve.
Usually a musician will release a CD and then tour, but Amero is doing it in reverse. He's on a 11-city Canadian tour that started in Toronto on Sept. 13, then he'll release his album at a not-so-private house concert in his hometown on Oct. 24.
"I'm really excited to be releasing my new album in such a different and dynamic way," said Amero in a news release.
"House concerts allow for an intimate performance, and I play a lot of them when I tour," Amero said. "So what better way to release Heart On My Sleeve than through an up-close-and-personal house concert that we can share with people everywhere?"
The self-produced album has already spawned the hit "Turn These Grey Skies Blue." Now Amero's second single, "Young Forever," is being released exclusively on CBC Music.
