Sloan share second song from new LP, ‘Commonwealth’
by Bill Pearis
As mentioned, Sloan return this fall with Commonwealth, their 11th album. It has a playing card motif with each of the four members getting their own suit and side to the double album. You may have already heard Patrick “Shamrock” Pentland’s riff-rocking “Keep Swinging (Downtown)” and now we get a track from Jay “Diamond” Ferguson’s side. “Cleopatra” might be the album’s standout cut, cramming in a crazy amount of hooks into its 2:42 length. Stream it below.
Commonwealth is out September 7. Pre-orders are on sale now, including a deluxe edition that includes a signed print and a deck of Sloan playing cards.
