JUNO award-winning rock act Sam Roberts Band release their new single “Picture of Love” via Known Accomplice / Cadence Music Group to all streaming platforms. The new track is the lead single from the group’s forthcoming album, due for release this fall.
Written by Sam Roberts and produced by JUNO award-nominated Gus Van Go (The Trews, Whitehorse), “Picture of Love” is a refreshing dose of warmth with guitars effortlessly woven through an irresistible melody. With over 100 million career streams to date, Sam Roberts Band continue to deliver their legacy of hit singles to take over the airwaves.
The new track marks the band’s first release since their 2020 album All of Us, which was released to critical acclaim, receiving a JUNO nomination for Rock Album of the Year and being named by Uncut Magazine as one of the top 10 highest-rated albums that year.
Born in Montreal, Sam Roberts had been a violin player, surrounded by a vast range of musical influences, who eventually moved on to guitar and started a rock band with friends. The Inhuman Condition became the best-selling independent EP in Canadian history and included a re-recorded version of “Brother Down” and the chart topper “Don’t Walk Away Eileen”. In 2003 he released his first full-length album, We Were Born in a Flame. This year marks the 20-year anniversary for the Double-Platinum certified album, which was a huge hit in Canada and won JUNO Awards for Album of the Year, Rock Album of the Year, and Artist of the Year.
Roberts has since continued to release hit Platinum and Gold-certified albums, winning awards across the board and landing once of a lifetime performance opportunities such as at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver.
Fans will be able to hear “Picture Of Love” live this year when the band hit the road for select summer shows, including two nights at The Kee To Bala on September 2nd & 3rd, marking the 18th year the band have played the historic venue.
