The 15-track collection was recorded at The Tragically Hip’s Bathouse Studios in Bath, ON. and is produced by Warne Livesey who has worked with Good for more than 20 years.

Other than his longstanding professional relationship with Good, Livesey, a transplanted Brit now living in Toronto, has produced albums for notables including The The, Deacon Blue, Icehouse, Paul Young, Midnight Oil (including Diesel and Dust that spawned the Australian band’s global breakout hit, Beds Are Burning), and Mark Hollis (the late lead singer for Talk Talk who was also a brother in law to Good).  Livesey has also produced several other Canadian acts that include Emm Gryner and 54-40.

The video for teaser track Sicily is done by Vancouver’s Brass Tacks Films’ Stefan Berrill who has 60+ music videos to his credit with acts such as Dallas Smith, The Washboard Union, Matinee, and Dark Horse.

Karan Aujla & DIVINE Debut in Top 25 on Billboard Canadian Albums Chart

B.C.-based Punjabi artist Karan Aujla and Indian rapper DIVINE land the No. 22 spot on this week's Canadian Albums chart with their new collaborative release, 'Street Dreams.' On the Canadian Hot 100, Beyoncé's "Texas Hold 'Em" ascends to No. 1, while Canadian pop artist Preston Pablo makes a debut.

B.C.-based Punjabi artist Karan Aujla and Indian rapper DIVINE are making moves together on Billboard's Canadian Albums chart this week, with their collaborative project, Street Dreams, debuting in the No. 22 spot.

The seven-track album, released Feb. 16, blends harder hip-hop and smooth R&B pop, the latter shining through especially on the Jonita Gandhi-assisted "Yaad." It's not Aujla's highest spot on the Albums chart — he reached No. 5 in 2023 with Making Memories, his collaboration with Canadian Punjabi artist Ikky — but it gives him some momentum going into his upcoming performance at the Juno Awards on Mar. 24, where he's nominated for TikTok Juno fan choice and breakthrough artist.
