For the creation of The Rural Alberta Advantage’s new album, Mended With Gold, frontman Nils Edenloff went off to a cabin in the woods, pondering the band's past and, apparently, sleeping with a pocketknife or protection from bears. According to a press release, Edenloff's writing eventually came to the conclusion that “the breakage and repair of an object becomes part of its unique history and ultimately makes it more valuable instead of a blemish to disguise".
The band's newest single, "On the Rocks", is a pure, understated display of emotion, highlighted by Edenloff's longing voice. Listen to the new track and check out Mended With Gold's tracklist below.
