Cuff The Duke “Morning Comes” Album Out Today

It has been an exciting start to 2012 indeed for Canadian four-piece Cuff The Duke, including a very exciting JUNO award nomination, “Adult Alternative Album of the Year,” for “Morning Comes” out today through Paper Bag Records. In celebration of today’s release, and recent accolades in their homeland, Cuff The Duke are excited to release a brand new music video for “Count on Me” – a song that testifies to loyalty and friendship amidst the weight of loss and loneliness, following the boys on an imaginative, daydream adventure (watch above).

“Morning Comes” is a concept record — ten solid tracks that flow like a film or great novel, filled to the brim with emotional highs and lows, plot twists, and universal truths. The album tells a story of change, confronting loss and – as track “Standing on the Edge” calls it, having the courage to look across an unknown future and onto the other side. It’s the first part of a two-album concept, the second of which is currently being completed in the studio, set to release in the US this Fall. While “Morning Comes” is a record about the lows, its follow-up will explore life after its loss, picking up where the album’s closing track, “Letting Go” leaves off. “I always try to incorporate a sense of hope.” 
“Wonderfully tuneful, well crafted and vibrant… it could end up being one of the year’s finest Americana releases”
– Alternative Press, Album Review (4/5 Stars)
