For the new single, Sweeter, the band headed into Canterbury Studio to record with engineer Jeremy Darby, with Taylor himself in the producer's chair, and the final touches put in the talented hands of JUNO award-winning mix/recording engineer Tim Abraham.
“I started working on this song while visiting my family in Kahnawake at the annual Pow Wow,”shares Julian. “ Remembering back to 1986 when I was eight years old my cousins and I all jumped into an old station wagon as soon as school had let out. My Great Uncle Paul had decided to follow in Clark Griswalds footsteps and drive his family and me across Canada en route to my Grandfathers place in Maple Ridge. We set off on a what would be my very first Trans Canada road trip. Hearing Chief Dan George speak at the Mission Pow-Wow would be a highlight of that journey for me. I’ve had many Canadian journeys since. In fact, I would hit the road again in 2001 but this time with my friends in a travelling band opening for the likes of Blue Rodeo, 54:40 and Spirit of the West. This is the story of that childlike euphoric feeling you get when you feel like you’re going somewhere even if you don’t know where that is. It’s also a song about the love that I have for this beautiful country that we are so lucky to live in.”
