Blue Rodeo’s Jim Cuddy Announces Solo Album ‘All the World Fades Away’, Plans Canadian Tour for 2024

Blue Rodeo frontman Jim Cuddy has announced that he will share a new solo album with The whole world fades awayexpected June 14 via 5 Corners Productions and Warner Music Canada.

The upcoming 12-track LP will mark his first full-length album since 2019 Rural soul.

“You get into a kind of dream state when you start writing. And I start to wonder why some images have stuck with me over the years and others haven’t. So yes, this album is about looking back,” he said. “However, I tried to make sure that the record affirms life as it is now, and reflects how much I like where I am now. It’s not a wrap-up or nostalgic for old times. It’s just… overview.”

To celebrate the project, he is also embarking on an extensive national tour, kicking off June 15 in Niagara’s Vineland, ON and visiting eight provinces over six months en route to a final show on December 1 in Brantford, ON. Tickets can be found on Cuddy’s official site, where they will go on sale on May 10 at 10am local time.

Cuddy gave a sneak peek The whole world fades away today featuring the lead single “Learn to Live Alone” along with an accompanying music video directed by Jenn Grant, who also provides vocals on “Scars.”
