Jason Bajada - You Are A Runner (I Am My Father's Son)

ARTIST PROFILE: After two independent albums, Puer Dolor and Up Go The Arms, Montreal singer-songwriter Jason Bajada has joined MapleMusic Recordings for the release of his third album Loveshit. Though the first two albums earned him accolades as one of Montreal’s best songwriters, listeners will be privy to Bajada’s best work yet with Loveshit.

Despite the fact that the songs were conceived in various cities across the continent, including Halifax and Los Angeles, the album is very much intertwined with Montreal. It was recorded at Troublemakers Studio in Montreal and includes a cover of You Are A Runner (And I Am My Father’s Son) by fellow Montrealers Wolf Parade.

As for the cover of Wolf Parade - it's a real winner. Bajada takes the jangly, rumbling brilliant "You Are A Runner" and makes it his own. The result: a dark, folk version of this modern classic. This one will be in our heads all day long!
