Canadian singer-songwriter Tim Baker (Hey Rosetta!) has announced new album The Festival, due out October 7th via Donovan Woods’ new label End Times Music. Baker is also also sharing the new single “Year of the Dog”.

Baker has announced North American tour dates throughout this November and December and added shows to his schedule to include the 2022 Americana Music Festival in Nashville, TN and a headline gig at Massey Hall on December 9th. In partnership with Plus1 Tim will donate $1 from each ticket sold to support grassroots organizations working to mitigate the current climate crisis and build a sustainable future for all.

Regarding the new album, Tim Baker says:

Writing The Festival saved my life. I could immerse myself in a different world. It gave me a reason to go on, something to hold onto.

During the pandemic, Baker retreated to Newfoundland and Labrador and reflected on years of touring, trauma, and the ongoing climate change crisis. Writing and recording The Festival kept him afloat in a time when the entire world felt adrift. The result is a “sonic embrace, a call in for love, and a cry out for connection.”
