Since 1970, when Bruce Cockburn (pronounced Ko-burn) released his self-titled debut on Columbia Records, the artist has consistently provided his fan base with album after album, almost year after year. To date, there has been twenty-four strong sets including Cockburn’s last album, Small Source of Comfort, which was released back in 2011. Since, it’s been relatively quiet, a strange anomaly given the usual consistency of one of Rock’s great male singer/songwriters.

Still signed to True North, we’re given the notice that Bruce Cockburn will rise from his solitude to provide his solid fanbase with a brand new solo effort, Bone On Bone. The new album will feature eleven new Cockburn originals (track-list below). Bone On Bone will be issued on standard CD, DD, and vinyl LP, all on September 15, although Bruce Cockburn’s site states September 8. (Go with September 15, for now.)

Bruce Cockburn is currently on a massive North American tour with eighteen scheduled Canadian dates from July 1 through September 30. He will hit the US with a total of 30 scheduled dates beginning on November 5 through April 21 of 2018. Get complete dates here.
