RAE SPOON ANNOUNCES NEW LP, MENTAL HEALTH, AND SHARES FIRST NEW SINGLE

MENTAL HEALTH DUE OUT AUGUST 16 VIA COAX RECORDS

TOUR DATES BEGIN AUGUST 14

Mental Health is non-binary musician Rae Spoon’s tenth full-length album and is the culmination of eighteen years of releasing records and touring internationally. Rae is known for giving a voice to perspectives that are not as often heard. Due out August 16 on Coax Records, the album traces their personal journey with mental health through eight indie-pop songs. From inter-generational trauma to losing people to suicide the issues raised are more than surface deep and ask hard questions about how to cope with mental pain. The album was recorded at the Noise Floor on Gabriola Island with members of the Pack AD and fuses rock drums and guitar with Rae’s enigmatic voice.

The first single from the LP, “I Can’t Sleep” is a pop song about insomnia and features singer Becky Black from the Pack AD. Rae says about the song: “I like to write songs about things that happen to me, but I haven’t heard a lot of songs directly about it. Like so many people, I struggle with insomnia and there’s something other-wordly about being awake when everyone else is asleep. I try to take the listener to that world with the music.”
