Description & Features+

"Serena Ryder - Utopia" - Just for the record, you could easily be staring a Serena Ryder triple album in the face right now. It might have taken four‐and‐a‐half years for this celebrated Toronto singer/songwriter to gift us with a follow‐up to 2012’s expectation‐defying critical and commercial hit, "Harmony", but a lack of new material was definitely not the hold‐up. No, just as she did for the last record, the prolific Ryder amassed something like 65 or 70 songs during the run‐up to her star‐solidifying new platter, "Utopia". The challenge wasn’t coming up with new material; the challenge was whittling it all down to fit an album‐sized package. Ryder was so flush with good stuff heading into Utopia, in fact, that she briefly toyed with releasing her own equivalent of the Clash’s Sandinista! or George Harrison’s "All Things Must Pass" – a triple LP composed of songs that she envisioned divided amongst moods of “light,” “dark” and the “grey” area in between. In the end, she chose to compress the full spectrum of emotions into a more
anageable, but no less ambitious package that wouldn’t necessarily require booking a day off work to properly absorb in one sitting. But you’ve been warned: there is definitely more to come. “I still have all those songs and, to me, they’re all good and they’re all good for a record so I don’t know,” she laughs. “I might have three more records.” There was no grand design to Utopia. A loose theme derived from the First Nations parable of the Two Wolves – which states that we have all have two wolves inside us, one light and one dark, that fight for dominance as they are fed in either direction – applied itself in hindsight, as Ryder saw those two sides of her own personality playing out in the song writing and wondered what would happen “if you fed both wolves instead of just one of them, so that neither of them are hungry?” "Utopia" is a collection of winning songs written on the fly in Los Angeles, London, Nashville, Los Angeles and Toronto with such friendly collaborators as Simon Wilcox, Thomas “Tawgs” Salter, John Grant, Todd Clark and Derek Furnham.
