Royal Tusk's Years Ago will be Edmonton AM's new theme song
Music from all three local finalists will find a home somewhere in the show
After a month of listening to music suggestions sent in by dozens of local artists, Edmonton AM has selected its new theme song: Years Ago by Royal Tusk.
- Edmonton AM is in search of a new theme song
- Edmonton AM narrows theme music contenders down to 3 finalists
This relatively new Edmonton-based band has some older roots in the city, in the form of several members from Ten Second Epic. Known for its "shaggy, tenacious force with hints of Americana, soul and a whole lotta heart," Royal Tusk's first album, Mountain, was released on June 10 by Hidden Pony Records.
You can hear the new theme each morning just after World Report, beginning Friday.
The other good news
Because the musical submissions by our other two finalists The Royal Foundry and Nuela Charles were so strong we've also found a place to play their music.
You'll be able to hear The Royal Foundry's track Beautiful Thing at the end of each hour before World Report.
As for Charles, her song, The Good Me will be used as the new theme for Mark About Town.
Thanks to everyone who sent in music and helped us make the decision!
