Patrick Ballantyne is pleased to be releasing his newest album “Love / Shadow / Dust”.
The 20 track album, self-produced by Ballantyne showcases fresh material, as well as some new renditions of songs penned by Patrick but previously recorded and released by other artists.
“Love / Shadow / Dust is my pandemic record, my COVID-Opus.” says Ballantyne, “With the world shutting down how it did, I threw all the extra time I had into this record. Late nights, early mornings… Writing new songs, and rediscovering a few I’d forgotten. I immersed myself in what I love to do, what I believe I was born to do… And this album, these 20 songs, are the result.”
While best known for his work co-writing multiple Canadian Radio hits with acts Big Sugar, and The Trews, Patrick Ballantyne released his first solo album to critical acclaim in 2008. Love / Shadow / Dust marks his 5th studio album, following up his 2019 concept album “SKY”.
