Following last Friday’s release of his new album, The Neon Skyline, Andy Shauf made his daytime television debut on CBS This Morning: Saturday.
Shauf gave a riveting performance of three tracks - “Try Again,” “Living Room,” and “Neon Skyline.” Onstage, he was joined by five other players - Karen Ng (woodwinds), Colin Nealis (keys), Joshua Daignault (bass), Chris Bezant (guitar), and Sean Mullins (drums). This marks his first television appearance since his performance on The Late Late Show with James Corden in 2017, and previews his North American tour, which kicks off next week at Columbus’ Ace of Cups. Tickets are available now and a full list of dates can be found below.

Additionally, Shauf released a new video for “Neon Skyline,” which was directed by Colin Medley and features Shauf in his studio in Toronto. “Over the course of the last few years I'd come by and take photos and listen to whatever new songs he'd been working on,” says Medley. “Sometimes we'd go to the Skyline, but quite often we'd never leave the studio, staying up all night turning each other on to different songs. At some point Andy put up a dartboard. I guess I just tried to capture those nights and pay tribute to Parkdale, the neighbourhood where we both live.”

The Neon Skyline is out now on ANTI-. The interconnected songs on the album were all written, performed, arranged and produced by Shauf, and follow a simple plot: the narrator goes to his neighborhood dive, finds out his ex is back in town, and she eventually shows up. It’s densely layered with an abundance of charming moments. His characters are all sympathetic here, people who share countless inside jokes, shots, and life-or-death musings when the night gets hazy.
