9 FEBRUARY 2024 (TORONTO, ON) — Five-time JUNO Award nominee TALK – whose debut single “Run Away to Mars” soared to No. 1 on Billboard’s Adult Alternative Airplay chart in 2023 – launches his first-ever North American headline tour tonight at El Club in Detroit. Eccentric, flashy and colorful, TALK has already established himself as a powerhouse on stage, touring with such artists as Imagine Dragons, Shania Twain, The Lumineers and Young The Giant.
The shows promise to be epic as TALK brings his debut Gold-certified album, Lord of the Flies & Birds & Bees, to life. The 35-date run includes shows at the Danforth in Toronto (April 22 and 27) and Montréal (April 19 and 23) and Québec (April 17 and 18). Zinadelphia will support. Numerous dates have sold out, prompting TALK to add more shows. Tickets are available HERE. See below for full itinerary.
TALK has created “I’m One of the Rest,” to score CBS’ trailer promoting the debut of the Original series “Tracker,” which stars Justin Hartley as Colter Shaw, a lone-wolf survivalist who roams the country as a reward seeker, using his expert tracking skills to help private citizens and law enforcement solve all manner of mysteries while contending with his own fractured family. The new series will premiere on Sunday, February 11, after SUPER BOWL LVIII, on the CBS Television Network and streaming on Paramount+. The trailer featuring “I’m One of the Rest” aired during CBS’ GRAMMY® Awards telecast and will run again during the Big Game broadcast. View trailer HERE.
“I had the pleasure of working alongside the CBS “Tracker” team to bring this song to life,” says TALK. “It was an extremely enjoyable collaboration and I’m honored it’s playing such a big role in launching the show. They gave me pieces of the story to go on and I used those moments and feelings they expressed to craft this song as one of my own.”
TALK is nominated for five JUNO Awards, making him one of three artists with the most nominations. Lord of the Flies & Birds & Bees is nominated for Album of the Year and Alternative Album of the Year while “A Little Bit Happy” is up for Single of the Year. TALK, who will perform at the March 24th ceremony, also received nods for Breakthrough Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year.
“History,” another track from Lord of the Flies & Birds & Bees, has attracted the attention of Elton John, who recently played the song on his Apple Music show, “Rocket Hour.” TALK has played festivals around the world including Lollapalooza (Chicago and Berlin), RADAR Switzerland, Boston Calling, Festival d'été de Québec, Calgary Stampede and more. Rolling Stone caught up with him during festival season. Check out the Q&A HERE.
Released by Capitol Records and available HERE, Lord of the Flies & Birds & Bees also includes the hit single “Run Away to Mars.” The hard-hitting collection shoots for the stars—and stadiums—with inspiration from Meatloaf, Broadway and ‘80s/’90s rock. While the album navigates a flood of emotions—both good and bad—it ultimately sees hope prevail.
“Thematically, the album is about love and friendship being able to survive anything. It’s never too late to lift someone up,” explains TALK.
