The new solo project High Ends from Yukon Blonde frontman Jeffrey Innes is titled Super Class and will be released October 7th via Dine Alone Records. Started as an adventurous new songwriting outlet, the 10-song album takes listeners on an 80s-inspired, synth soaked & often psychedelic journey.
Having previously revealed LP cut, “Intoxicated,” an anthem to inebriated love with an impossibly addicting melody, High Ends have unveiled CSS’ take on the song. An unexpected reggae-tinged beat powers up the tracks bouncy synths, keeping all the infectiousness of the original.
The ten-song LP was recorded with producer Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, The New Pornographers) at his Vancouver Island facility. During the sessions, Gold & Youth drummer Jeff Mitchelmore handled percussion, Louise Burns and The New Pornographers’ Kathryn Calder contributed backing vocals, and Ladyhawk’s Darcy Hancock laid down guitar.
