Murray A. Lightburn, the longtime frontman of Montreal’s acclaimed The Dears, returns today with a deeply personal new single “Dumpster Gold,” to announce his third solo full-length album, Once Upon A Time In Montreal, for a March 31release via Dangerbird Records. The album, which Lightburn jokes is an audio version of a biopic, was inspired by the passing of his father, a jazz musician from Belize who moved to Montreal via New York to reconnect with his teenage sweetheart. The two were married for 56 years, until he passed in April 2020 in a Quebec nursing home where he’d been living with Alzheimer’s. Lightburn shared a video for the single earlier today via RANGE.
