Calvin Love readies Highway Dancer for Modern Sky USA, tours with Sheepdogs (2018)

Canadian songwriter Calvin Love will release his new LP, Highway Dancer, next Friday, October 26 via Modern Sky USA. Inspired by his restless spirit and the thousands of miles he’s spent alone on the open road, it’s an album for travelers, and for anyone who’s ever been in between moving and standing still.
Today, Love shares album track “You Got Me Runnin,” a song that perfectly embodies the record’s yearning, lonesome vibe on YouTube.There’s a palpable mood at the heart of Highway Dancer, as mercurial, dream-like, and haunted as a late night on the open road. It’s a love song to the journey, to the quiet hours, and to all of the places our minds drift to as the miles go by — something that Love knows well. A lifelong musician, he’s never been able to stay in one place for long: there was a move to Europe at 18, a couple of years in LA, and a few more spent just about everywhere else you can think of. While he’s always been influenced by his nomadic lifestyle, the new album takes on a new kind of road-noir, his usual shades of deep scarlet and aubergine now laced with the clay-red of the Badlands and the ice-blue glow of the dashboard.
Love is currently on tour with The Sheepdogs, and has a record release show coming up next month in Toronto. See below for all upcoming dates.
