Daniel Romano announces more European tour dates


Finally Free is Daniel Romano’s third album of 2018, after a pair of Bandcamp-only releases the Canadian singer-songwriter posted in January. One, Nerveless, was full of strong power-pop hooks with a rootsy flair. The other, Human Touch, leaned more toward somber ballads with close vocal harmonies from musical collaborator Kay BerkelFinally Free doesn’t have as obvious a focus.

Romano’s latest features nine shaggy tracks that tend to meander into dead ends, as if he chiseled out rough song forms and didn’t get around to honing them before he started recording. Apart from piano on two tracks by Berkel, Romano played all the instruments himself. He has described these tunes as “my most accomplished and honest musical output,” which is a bold statement for a guy who has released 11 full-length albums since 2009. Daniel Romano is a philosophical one-man song machine, the Canadian indie bard's prolificity somehow hasn't diminished the quality of his work as he once again shifts modes, this time into tones of pastoral British folk and kaleidoscopic druggy musings that all seem to fit snugly within his ever-expanding oeuvre. However he chooses to present his work, Romano remains a man of many words, and Finally Free is no different in that respect.
