Published Feb 16, 2017Nearly two years removed from releasing his Dream It All Away LP, Leeroy Stagger has revealed the details behind his 11th studio LP. Titled Love Versus, the new disc will arrive in April.
Love Versus marks Stagger's first effort for True North Records, with label president Geoff Kulawick calling him "one of the most insightful songwriters I have ever come across. He has a gift for distilling complex images, commentary and concepts into brilliantly succinct lyrical one liners."
A press release reveals that Stagger teamed up with Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, Black Mountain, Yukon Blonde) to produce Love Versus, creating a dream band of drummer Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello), guitarist Paul Rigby (Neko Case), keyboardist Geoff Hilhorst (the Deep Dark Woods), and Stagger's longtime bassist Tyson Maiko.
