With Plein D’Amour, legendary Canadian band the Guess Who have crafted a collection of songs that raises the bar and continues to take it up a notch, both musically and sonically.
The Guess Who, who rose to chart-topping success in the late '60s and early '70s, have returned with their latest offering, Plein D’Amour. With a rich history boasting hits like "American Woman," "These Eyes," and "No Time," this iconic group has left an indelible mark on the music scene.
While their 1970 album, American Woman, remains an international favorite, reaching No. 1 in Canada and No. 9 in the United States, the Guess Who's musical prowess extends beyond a single album. With an impressive five other albums reaching the Top Ten in Canada, the band boasts a total of 14 Top 40 singles in the United States and over 30 in Canada. Their influence is undeniable, and their sound continues to resonate with fans old and new.
Consisting of Derek Sharp, Michael Staertow, Leonard Shaw, Michael Devin, and founding member Garry Peterson, the Guess Who have continued to build on the success with their recent singles, "The King," "Plein D’Amour," and "Headline," which garnered immediate attention and over 165,000 streams on Spotify.
Plein D’Amour showcases the band's unwavering talent and serves as a platform for standout tracks like "Across The Line," which captures the essence of their signature sound while exploring new sonic territories. It is evident that the band have poured their hearts and souls into this project, as founding member Garry Peterson boldly states, "After recording this album and living with it for a while, I believe this is the best album that I have played on."
In addition to the captivating music, Plein D’Amour offers a visual feast for fans. The limited-edition colored vinyl includes a 180-gram purple splatter version and a smoked green version, each a collector's item. Renowned graphic designer Ioannis, known for his work with Deep Purple, Allman Brothers Band, and Led Zeppelin, has lent his artistic touch to the album artwork.
