"The Moment Is A Wild Place" is an epic ballad that will contend with the greatest songs in the eternal canon of Gord Downie. The late frontman of legendary Canadian rock band The Tragically Hip, Downie is celebrated beyond his lifetime for bettering his nation, and bestowing timeless songs like "Ahead By A Century,” “Courage (for Hugh MacLellan)," and "Bobcaygeon.” Now, in collaboration with iconic producer Bob Rock (Metallica, Bon Jovi, Motley Crue, Michael Buble), Downie offers amongst his most indelible performances, the shimmering and cathartic seven-and-a-half minute "The Moment Is A Wild Place." Shot with Rock's wall of guitar sound – a chiming psychedelic patina – Gord sings to the heights of his agility, his voice hearkening back to halcyon days, his lyrics as simple yet profound as any he has written – "They keep saying, ‘Just live in the moment / What they don't say / Is the moment / Is a wild place.” A beacon in defiance to the paradox of being alive in the present, "The Moment Is A Wild Place" is a magical, resonant gift from the collision of rock n' roll giants. The Moment EP features six songs taken from the upcoming double album, Lustre Parfait (out May 5, 2023).
1. The Moment Is A Wild Place
