Blue Rodeo: the boys are back!

Blue Rodeo will drop their 16th studio album and first in over five years, Many A Mile, on December 3. The announcement came with the release today of the first single “When You Were Wild,” a rootsy melodic, easy ramblin, harmonized gem that showcases the incredible talent of Canada's most beloved band. The black and white video for the song is a campy lark that features band members lined up as one dimensional animated songsters playing and singing.

The spirit of “When You Were Wild” is summed up with the lyrics voiced by Greg Keelor: “On your darkest day you’ll find your best friends.” Says Keelor: “That line is what ‘When You Were Wild’ is all about. When you meet your moment of reckoning and you feel the fuckery of fate’s wheel careening through your life, it is friends that get you through. A lifetime of friendship is only remembered in the moment.”


In the 35 years since forming, Blue Rodeo have sold over 4 million albums, received dozens of JUNO Award nominations and wins, played over 2,000 shows, been inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, received a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame, been named to the Order of Canada and have been honoured with the Governor General’s Performing Arts Award. And, they’re still as strong as ever.
