Canadian songcrafter extraordinaire Patrick Watson is back, with an absolutely new and absolutely wonderful album. Titled Adventures in Your Own Backyard, it is constructed of the sort of elegantly written and artfully arranged pop music you would expect from the man who won the prestigious Polaris Music Prize for his 2006 LP Close to Paradise.

It is coming out on the 30th of April, but you don't need to wait that long to get a glimpse of its majesty. Patrick has prepared a trailer for the album which you can view right now:

He's also playing a couple of dates in London and Brighton with a band made up of Mishka Stein (bassist), Simon Angell (guitar), and Robbie Kuster (piano). Here are those dates:
