The sophomore album from Luke Lalonde, 'The Perpetual Optimist', is available now, with the first 100 copies pressed on limited edition clear vinyl.


The album finds the singer writing more in the vein of Americana greats like John Prine, Roger Miller, and Kris Kristofferson; with nods to 60's pop of Jacques Dutronc, and the Kinks. It is a record shaped as much by Luke Lalonde's own musical upbringing as it is by the frenetic world around him. He writes with a more pointed perspective than ever, addressing the most pressing issues of our time: the escalating threat of climate change, connection in the face of manic uncertainty, and mortality. ‘The Perpetual Optimist’ is Luke Lalonde’s most mature and confident work to date.
