Toronto, ON – Today, Shad unveils his fourth album Flying Colours through an exclusive track-by-track stream with CBCMusic.ca a week before its official Oct. 15 release via Black Box.

Shad kicks off his Canadian tour on Oct. 19 with a sold out show inside Toronto’s Opera House. Those who didn’t get a ticket in time will be relieved to hear that a new Toronto date has been announced for Jan. 31 at the Danforth Music Hall. Tickets are on sale this Thursday, Oct. 10 through Ticketmaster, but early birds can buy tickets starting today with the pre-sale password “stylin”.
On Tuesday, Oct. 15, Shad takes over the editorial reins of CBCMusic.ca, providing readers with engaging pieces about the people that inspire his music, the stories behind his songs, the lines he wished he wrote, basketball as well as a few other surprises. You can find the updated tour schedule after the jump.
