Buffy Sainte-Marie Returns with 'Power in the Blood'



Arrival of Power in the Blood. This album will drop on May 12 through True North Records.


Sainte-Marie recorded the album in Toronto with three producers: Michael Phillip Wojewoda (Barenaked Ladies, Rheostatics), Jon Levine (Nelly Furtado, K'naan, Serena Ryder) and Chris Birkett (Sinéad O'Connor, Talking Heads).

Most of the songs here are brand new, but opening cut "It's My Way" is a re-recording of the title track from her 1964 debut album. "Power in the Blood" is a collaboration with electronic group Alabama 3.

According to a press release, "Power in the Blood is a reminder that, five decades on, Sainte-Marie is a voice as vital and significant as ever. Like so much of Sainte-Marie's work, it's universal."

The songs reportedly touch on subjects like "the sanctity of life, the splendour of Mother Nature and scathing political and social commentary." The tracklist is below and the album cover is above. Also below, see Sainte-Marie's tour schedule, which includes UK dates with Morrissey plus a handful of Canadian dates.

The new version of "It's My Way" can be streamed at the bottom of this page, along with the old version.
