Tenille Townes has announced that her upcoming project, the Train Track Worktapes, will be released on April 21.
The five-track project was conceptualized, written, and recorded during an extensive charity train trip, the CP Holiday Train, which benefits Canadian food banks.
Townes and her band played 65 shows onboard the train during their 15 day-long journey in December.
Speaking about that experience, Townes said, “Being in motion is my favorite state. I love the hum of the engines and the blur of the evergreens out the window, in any mode of transportation. I really do believe that home is not a place, but a feeling that you get. And being on the road, singing songs for people and feeling a part of a collective brought together through music, that feels like home to me. This collection of songs will always represent that traveling spirit. I hope anyone who listens feels like they are riding right there with us.”
“The generosity of everyone bringing donations to their local food banks as we travelled along was a reminder to me of how much good there is in the world, especially in the heart of the smaller, remote communities. In between all these shows, I made it my mission to write about what it felt like to witness that, ride the high and capture what I was feeling on the trip,” she added.
The album was co-produced by Townes and guitarist Jaxon Hargrove.
