Joel Plaskett goes down odd path to new album "Scrappy Happiness"

Alright, I have to admit I heard about this a little while ago but I just couldn't wrap my head around what Joel Plaskett was up to.

Here's the deal, as I understand it.  Beginning yesterday Plaskett will be recording and digitally releasing a song a week for ten straight weeks.  Every Tuesday the new song will be premiered on CBC Radio 2's The Drive with Buck 65 (I mean Rich Telfry) at 5:15pm EST.  The first song, was "You're Mine".

This will culminate in the release of a complete new album, Scrappy Happiness, on March 27th.

You can track the progress and the process (and the progress of the process one assumes) here.

Joel Plaskett plays the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Toronto on May 18th & 19th.
