Secret Path by Gord Downie on Apple Music

EDITORS’ NOTES

This hauntingly beautiful solo album is inspired by the story of Chanie Wenjack, an indigenous boy who died in 1966 after escaping one of Canada’s notoriously brutal residential schools. The Tragically Hip frontman handles the delicate material with an originality and eloquence that echoes Radiohead and Arcade Fire. Built around rustic weavings of piano, guitar, and atmospheric drums, each song becomes an image overlaid with sorrow, horror, and tenderness.
