Jim Cuddy Announces New Solo Album “All The World Fades Away”

Jim Cuddy has announced his new album, All The World Fades Away, will be released on June 14th. The new album, Cuddy’s sixth solo effort, sees the legendary songwriter making the most of a rare abundance of time to reflect, tinker, and create, drawing from his decades of experiences with an eye for appreciating the journey life has given him. Cuddy says, “You sort of enter a dream state when you begin writing. And I’ve begun to wonder why some images have stayed with me over the years and others haven’t. So yes, this album is about looking back. However, I tried to make sure the record is affirming of life as it is now, reflecting how much I like where I’m at today. It’s not wrapping up or being nostalgic for old times. It’s just… surveying.”

In addition to the new music, Jim Cuddy has announced a full slate of Canadian tour dates, running from June through December of 2024 that will take him from coast to coast. Tickets are available via JimCuddy.com presale beginning Monday May 6 at 10 am ET and will run throughout the week. General on sale begins Friday, May 10 at 10 am local (Victoria and Halifax general on sale begins at 12pm local). Select tour dates will include a digital album of All The World Fades Away with the purchase of a ticket.

The first new music from the album is the radiant album opener “Learn to Live Alone.”Of the musically buoyant but slightly tear-stained track, Cuddy says “If I were to look at the evolution of my very long relationship with my wife (actor Rena Polley), we have spent a lot of time apart. Independence has become one of the foundational pieces of our relationship, and it has shaped the way we live. When I see other couples that do everything together, I can’t help but wonder how that’s possible.”

The prolonged gestation of the three-years-in-the-making All The World Fades Away helps explain Cuddy’s reflective mindset. Hitting pause on his solo album, Cuddy took time to record and tour with Blue Rodeo. However, in the summer of 2023, Cuddy got the band back together at The Woodshed Studio to complete the album. Co-producers Tim Vesely and Colin Cripps – also on guitar – were joined by drummer Joel Anderson, bassist Bazil Donovan, violinist Anne Lindsay, keyboardist Steve O’Connor and a marquee roster of guests including vocalist Jenn Grant.

“Learn to Live Alone” arrives with a video shot by multi-disciplinary artist Jenn Grant, who’s involvement with the album expanded beyond her vocal contribution on “Scars” after she gifted Jim with a video for that song. Her work as both a visual artist and a musician gave her a singular perspective on Jim’s music, and she has gone on to create several videos for the album, bringing her unique visual style to support and highlight the powerful songwriting.

As a solo artist and as one of the creative forces in Blue Rodeo, Jim Cuddy has received nearly every accolade Canada can bestow upon a musician including 15 JUNO Awards, and The Order of Canada. Along with his bandmates in Blue Rodeo, Jim has been inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, received the Governor General Performing Arts Award and a Star on the Walk of Fame.
