Daniel Lanois is promising a new album in the fall, and one-off single "Papineau" (it won't be on the album) will help keep fans patient. It's a lovely sweet tune featuring alternating vocals by Lanois (sounding more resonant than ever) and Laura Cole. "It's a song designed to be sung as a duet....a Father/Daughter conversation", the roots music veteran explains. This is a conversation you definitely want to over-hear. Lanois will soon hit the road with Emmylou Harris, reprising their collaborative masterpiece Wrecking Ball. Dates include Toronto's Massey Hall on April 15.
