First New Album In A Decade On Vinyl LP!

Multi-award-winning, platinum-selling singer-songwriter and environmental activist Sarah Harmer releases Are You Gone, her first album in a decade, on February 21st, 2020 (Arts & Crafts). A deeply personal and political collection of songs motivated by the beauty of life, the urgency of the climate crisis, and the question of loss, Sarah called the album a spiritual successor of sorts to her acclaimed 2000 debut, You Were Here, which made many year-end critics' lists, and which TIME called the year's best debut album. With its simple title, Are You Gone, is a meditation on the idea of presence, a sharpened, more electric confrontation with the realities of nature and human nature.

Encompassing a stylistic range from barebones folk to layered indie rock, lead track "New Low" captures the prescient energy of the album - a rollicking, empowering electric guitar-laced call-for-uprising in the face of global disasters. Album opener "St. Peter's Bay" blends melancholic vocals and smooth atmospherics to effectively conjure the feeling and image of standing at dusk overlooking an endless sea, while "Take Me Out" is a modern, punchy alt-rock take on the near impossibility of letting go. "What I Was To You" is a tribute to her lifelong friend Gord Downie of the Tragically Hip, and psychedelic-tinged piano ballad "The Lookout" tackles the angst of love-across-timezones. Penultimate track "Shoemaker", about Sarah discovering an old book and census of her great great Glaswegian grandfather, calls to mind the gently ominous, slowly shifting chords of Sparklehorse before transforming into a gorgeous, almost-crescendoing show of Sarah's vocal range. "See Her Wave" wraps the album with an acoustic goodbye written in memoriam to another friend who moved on.
