With over a million records sold worldwide, a career spanning more than 30 years, and a catalogue of hits that occupy the airways to this day, legendary Canadian pop/rock band 5440 released an album that re-imagines ten of their most popular songs. This is not a re-recording of these classic songs but rather a unique approach. In many ways these versions reveal the depth of the group’s songwriting, overshadowing the original versions. Featuring original arrangements of violin, guitar, banjo, mandolin and more by Daniel Lapp, La Difference: A History Unplugged gives new context and spirit to 10 classic songs fans all know and love.
This is an album that feels at once familiar and entirely new. Fans will be delighted to hear the folky stomp of Baby Ran, or the middle-eastern influenced arrangement of One Gun – combinations that until now, would’ve been hard to imagine.
