Guy Doune [Patrick Watson's missing you remake] - DJ Champion

We posted some Patrick Watson earlier, and thought this would be an interesting song to include a bit later on.  'Guy Doune' is a song from Champion's first album 'Chill 'Em All' (iTunes).  This is Patrick Watson's 'Missing You' remake that came on the follow up remix album (iTunes).  Amazing.

Adventures In Your Own Backyard

 

'Into Giants' is the first single from Patrick Watson's upcoming album 'Adventures In Your Own Backyard'.  The record is due to be released April 16th 2012 on Secret City Records in Canada, and on May 1st worldwide on Domino.  The album was made at home in Montreal at the end of a five year run that included the tours for both 'Close to Paradise' and 'Wooden Arms' as well as the collaboration on 'Ma Fleur' with the Cinematic Orchestra. 

There's no easy way to describe Patrick Watson's sound.  There's no harm in trying, but reaching out and listening and finding the first song you'll really love is far more adventurous.  This really is music to disappear into, to let the everyday fade from focus for a moment.

Directed by Alex Produkt and Kathleen Weldon; The Great Escape is from the album 'Close to Paradise' (iTunes).  Close to Paradise won the Polaris Music Prize in 2007 was followed by 'Wooden Arms' (iTunes).   The single 'Into Giants' is available now as well as the 2003 debut album 'Just Another Ordinary Day'.  2007 also marked the release of 'Ma Fleur'.  The song 'To Build A Home' has been used time and again in film and television soundtracks.  

 

Knowing that this album is coming is exciting.  This hint of it is incredible.  We can't wait.
