Alan Doyle So Let’s Go, Deluxe Edition, October 09


Cover So Let's Go



    05 OCTOBER 2015 (Toronto, ON) – Alan Doyle, actor, producer, best-selling author, and best-known as lead singer for Newfoundland’s beloved Great Big Sea these past 20+ years, is set to release the deluxe edition of his second solo album, So Let’s Go, October 09 via Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. This expanded package includes three bonus tracks and video filmed during CMT’s Live At The Edison TV special for current single 1,2,3,4, featuring Ed Robertson of Barenaked Ladies, with whom Doyle co-wrote the track. Timing dovetails nicely with Doyle and his ace six-piece band of ‘Beautiful Gypsies’ joining BNL on a 21-date cross-Canada tour beginning October 19, playing songs from Doyle’s solo records along with Great Big Sea favourites and some unpredictable gems from far-flung places that are sure to thrill. Made in collaboration with Thomas ‘Tawgs’ Salter (Lights, Walk Off The Earth), Jerrod Bettis (Adele, Serena Ryder), Gordie Sampson (Keith Urban, Willie Nelson), and Joe Zook (OneRepublic, Katy Perry), So Let’s Go follows Doyle’s first solo outing, Boy On Bridge, released in 2012. Also included in this deluxe edition are the bonus songs I Am A Sailor and the live track Dream Of Home, recorded in Halifax early this year. Doyle was also writing his first book simultaneously with the album. By turns hilarious and poignant, the best-selling memoir Where I Belong was released last year and is now being issued in paperback and audio download October 13. Alan Doyle hails from Petty Harbour, NL, and formed Great Big Sea in 1993 with Sean McCann, Bob Hallett, and Darrell Power, in which they fused traditional Newfoundland music with their own pop sensibilities. Their nine albums, double-disc hits retrospective, and two DVD releases have been declared Gold or Platinum and have sold a combined 1.2 million copies in Canada. So Let’s Go continues to cement Alan Doyle’s reputation as one of our country’s most treasured musicians and storytellers.
