Toronto-based folk outfit, Great Lake Swimmers are set to release their fifth album, New Wild Everywhere, this Tuesday, but you can listen to the entire album here on CBC Music all week.




The much anticipated followup to their 2009 Lost Channels, which earned the band both Juno and Polaris nominations, breaks with tradition in that it was recorded in an actual studio, unlike their previous albums, which were recorded in churches, subways, castles and even a grain silo.

And since Great Lake Swimmers have been picked by Radio 3, along with partners, AUX.TV and Exclaim!, to be X3 Artist of the Month for April, we are excited to announce they will be joining us not once, but twice this month. On Tuesday, they sit down with Lisa Christiansen, and next week, they join Craig Norris to play the album in its entirety.
