Famously recorded around a single mic at Toronto’s Church of the Holy Trinity, the Cowboy Junkies second album The Trinity Session is widely lauded as a quiet classic. Without any major celebrations happening to commemorate the album’s thirtieth anniversary by the band, the Berlin-based Canadian musicians Scott Monteith (Deadbeat) and Fatima Camara have assumed the mantle of merrymakers supreme as they give kudos to Session with the highest compliment possible (and with the Junkies’ endorsement): a full album reinterpretation release!

Trinity Thirty is out April 26 on Constellation Records and finds the duo of Deadbeat and Camara reworking The Trinity Session’s sparse arrangements with minimal noodles and measured, moving vocals. The result is a caring tribute that celebrates and stands on its own; as original as the original.
