Patrick Wilson Shares Single and Tour Dates

Patrick Wilson shares new single "Places You Wil Go" from his album 'Love Songs For Robots,'

“Places You Will Go”, is the new single from Patrick Watson’s forthcoming LP, Love Songs For Robots. The track premiered today in North America.

The fifth record from Watson will be available on May 12th through Secret City Records. Love Songs For Robots is the follow up to Watson’s 2012 release, Adventures In Your Own Backyard. To celebrate the release, the band will head out on a worldwide tour, with additional dates to be announced.

The album was recorded at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles and Studio Pierre Marchand in Montreal. Of the record, some of which was debuted at private concerts in small loft spaces, Watson explains, “I wanted to make a science fiction R n’ B meets Vangelis erotica with a zest of folk kind of record.” It was only halfway through writing the record when the artist found himself having, by his own submission, “a bad year” did more personal themes begin to creep in. “I started thinking about how emotional reactions were more mechanical than we think and the only thing left between us and artificial intelligence is the act of inspiration. Just food for thought.”

Watson composes, performs and records his albums with his full band of almost a decade, which includes Joe Grass (guitars), Robbie Kuster (drums/percussion) and Mishka Stein (bass). Raised and still living in Montreal, Watson himself has composed 15 scores for both film and television, including a trailer for The Walking Dead and Wim Wenders’ new 3D film, Everything Will Be Fine, where he performed the songs Cynical World (an original for the film) and Lighthouse.
