Sloan Shares “Magical Thinking” from Steady, Out October 21 and Announces Canadian Tour





Canadian indie-rock royalty Sloan have released the third single, “Magical Thinking,” off their upcoming 13th studio album Steady, coming out on October 21 through murderecords/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. Fans can pre-order/pre-save Steady HERE.

“Magical Thinking” is released with an official lyric video today and follows the two previously released songs, “Spend The Day” and “Scratch The Surface.” Of the track, Sloan’s Chris Murphy explains, “This song lampoons the idea of anyone who thinks that their feelings trump science. Yes, I think being alive is a miracle and that we should all be grateful but people’s beliefs ultimately mean nothing and whatever those beliefs are they shouldn’t become legislation or be tax exempt and I shouldn’t have to respect them. And I don’t.”  

The release of Steady will coincide with the 30th anniversary of their debut record Smeared which came out in October 1992. Sloan are one of the rare bands to make it to their 13th album with all four original members who are equally prolific songwriters and all still working at the top of their respective games, sounding utterly ageless in the process. The album title is reflective of Sloan’s impressive 30-year feat, Murphy explains, “They say if you want to go fast go alone but if you want to go far go together. I don’t know if there are many other bands you can name that are still making records with their original line up 30 years in. Look it up!”
