Latest release


Released on March 5, 2021

Some art is about sustenance. Some of it is about healing, or harm; some is about play and some about its own labour. There is art about wishing, and politics, and despair, and inheritance, and enchanted basilisks. Across 15 years and five solo albums, the Toronto musician Owen Pallett has made art that is each of these things – music that shines, gallops, shudders, climaxes. Working alone and with some of the biggest names in popular music, they have sewn their name into the early sound of this century, a message hidden at its hem.

Island was released May 22, 2020 on Secret City Records.
