The Canadian rocker needs your (or your rich uncle's) help.
"It's been six years since my last full-length release, and I've got some amazing artists who are going to help make it happen by contributing their talent as writers, musicians and singers. Lyris Hung, Tim Welch, Randy Cook and Rob Pruess have helped shape the project. Rufus Wainwright, Hawksley Workman and Steven Page are on board as well… The bulk of the funding is to help pay for musicians, engineers, studio and mastering fees. I'm releasing it on my own label, Le Petite Mort, and Fontana North is going to distribute it."
