Nova Scotia’s Mo Kenney has already released music through Joel Plaskett’s New Scotland Records, and the singer-songwriter is evidently continuing to turn heads. She just inked a deal with Toronto’s Pheromone Recordings as she gears up to release her debut album.
Kenney’s self-titled LP is finished and will be out on September 25 via Pheromone in partnership with New Scotland. As previously promised, the album was produced by Plaskett.
Currently, not much is known about the collection, and the tracklist is still under wraps. But you can listen to the Plaskett-assisted number “Scene of the Crime” here, or check out a music video for Kenney’s song “Eden” at the bottom of the page.
Prior to the release of the album, Kenney will be hitting the road in Canada and playing a few shows with — who else? — Joel Plaskett. See the schedule below.
