We Are The Same's Morning Moon

HipI haven't received a Tragically Hip email in a while, but I got one this morning.

Hi Folks,

Greetings to all. We have some very exciting news to deliver. Our twelfth album, We Are The Same, will be released in North America on Tuesday, April 7th. The album was produced by Bob Rock and recorded primarily at the Bathouse Studio. It contains twelve new tracks that range from levity and light to melancholy and anger. We think it has a little bit for everyone and showcases the great range of the band.

The full track listing is:

Morning Moon
Honey, Please
The Last Recluse
Coffee Girl
Now The Struggle Has A Name
The Depression Suite
The Exact Feeling
Queen of the Furrows
Speed River
Frozen In My Tracks
Love Is A First
Country Day

Here's that first single, Morning Moon.

I like the song. I liked the album art for the last album better though

I was just about to send off an e-mail to you just in case you didn't get it, but I see you did!

What do you think of the new song? If the new album is anything like World Container, than it'll take me a few weeks to get into it. The new single seems pretty solid though!

I've played it a few times and I'm still trying to get a feel for it.

I thought In View was a great single the first time I heard it....

But it's nice... I think it'll grow on me. And I'd probably dig Gord Downie Sings the Phone Book.

I think the single is kinda weak but i'm hoping the maritimes is in line for a summer tour.

I haven't seen them since February 2007.

Awesome, "We are the same" has rocketed to the top of my most anticipated list.

I can't wait to see what they come at us with this time!!

New single has a nice hook. Love the album title.

Just to keep everyone in the loop, a second song has been released on thehip.ca

The tune is called Love is a First (Which is just one of many songs that seem to have evolved from previous rants!). It's a different kind of tune, I like. It's definitely not a karaoke tune though! (Open up Song on the Day on the Hip site to check it out!)
