On his last record, 2010’s The Waiting, Royal Wood was in a considerably more contemplative mood when compared to his newest masterpiece We Were Born To Glory. These 13 tracks boast a considerably more upbeat pop edge. Wood wears the suit well (no pun intended), indulging his love of pop, embellishing his songs with lush strings, piano, guitar and more. We Were Born To Glory will quite possibly be one of the catchiest, well thought-out pop records to emerge from Canada this year. Get on this train now.
