(Toronto, ON – January 21, 2022) – Kiefer Sutherland today unveils his eagerly anticipated third studio album Bloor Street. Launched with an interview on this morning’s Zoe Ball Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2 and previewed last night with an interview and session for Bob Harris, Bloor Street follows his 2019 album Reckless & Me, which debuted at #9 on the Official Album Charts, and simultaneously topped the Americana, Country and Independent charts.
As indicated by the recent singles “So Full Of Love”, “Two Stepping In Time” and the title track, the album finds Kiefer navigating a range of emotions, from romance to nostalgia and from heartache to imaginative fictional narratives. While it explores a spectrum of moods and sonic influences, it’s united by the grit, pure feeling and authenticity of his voice together with his consistently compelling songwriting.
The album was produced and mixed by the multiple Grammy Award winner Chris Lord-Alge (Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood), and recorded at PLYRZ Studios in Los Angeles.
Kiefer says, “Writing and recording this album was a unique experience given the pandemic and subsequent restrictions that followed. I found myself, like so many, with a block of time that I had never been afforded before, which allowed me to not only reflect upon my life but also to write about it. Music has always been a personal extension of storytelling for me. I couldn’t be more excited to share these new songs.”
Kiefer boosts the album’s launch as he today also shares a new video for the song ‘Chasing The Rain’. Effectively a love letter in song written to bridge the distance with a loved one while on tour, its poignancy is heightened by the simplicity of the visual. It collates exhilarating live footage alongside behind-the-scenes clips of Kiefer’s adventures on the road.
His huge UK and European tour in support of Bloor Street is currently in the process of being rescheduled. Expect new dates to be announced soon. In the meantime, Kiefer is sharing a series of solo acoustic performances of every song from the album, alongside his reflections on the experiences and stories that inspired each one. All of the performances to date can be seen HERE.
From Lost Boys and Stand By Me to 24, everyone knows about Kiefer Sutherland’s phenomenally successful acting career. Yet in recent years, he has focused on applying his masterful storytelling ability to music, with Bloor Street following two acclaimed albums which delved deep into the worlds of country and Americana.
In addition to his music career, Kiefer Sutherland will be returning to our screens soon. He features alongside Chris Pine and Ben Foster in the upcoming film The Contractor (previously titled Violence of Action), and will play Franklin D. Roosevelt in the limited series The First Lady in a cast that also features Viola Davis and Gillian Anderson.
