Montréal-based musician Patrick Watson is thrilled to unveil his new track and video entitled “Lost With You.” During the current pandemic, Patrick felt the urge to reach out to his fans with a recording and offer comfort. “I hope it keeps you good company,” writes Watson. This is his first new material since the release of the critically-acclaimed album, Wave, which Exclaim! called “beautifully gratifying,” and is accompanied by a video directed by Watson himself with the additional craft of editor and art director Arizona O’Neill. Watson explains, “I’m not going to lie but finally my embarrassing rollerblading skills came in handy to film this. Homemade COVID videos are very fun to make. I just kept seeing people biking when I heard this song.”
Patrick Watson composes, performs and records his albums with his full band, which includes Joe Grass (guitar), Evan Tighe (drums), Mishka Stein (bass). The recipients of Canada’s Polaris Music Prize, in addition to multiple Juno and Polaris nominations, Watson and his band have toured on all continents, on occasion playing with full orchestras to bring their rich music to life.
