HOMESHAKE — the long-running solo project of Toronto-based musician Peter Sagar — announces his new album, CD WALLET, out March 8th via Dine Alone Records, and shares a video for the lead single, “CD Wallet”. Written and recorded over a majority of 2023 at Peter’s home studio in Toronto, CD WALLET is a record that takes place in his hometown of Edmonton, and touches on memories of growing up and the feeling of returning years later. Peter explains how the album was “made in a heavy, straightforward indie rock style to impress my childhood self” and addresses feelings of nostalgia and the trappings one finds themselves in when reflecting on years past. 

The video for “CD Wallet” was shot by Jim Larson in Edmonton and features clips of Peter traveling through his childhood home, visiting places he hasn’t seen since moving away over a decade earlier but is returning to now. It’s also an homage to feeling alien in a place you haven’t lived in, but still know where everything is and how to get there. 

CD WALLET also emphasizes Peter’s early fascination with guitar music: ‘Wake up, grandma why don’t you put on a little makeup,’ or so he thought the lyrics went to “Chop Suey!” by System of a Down. Sagar was flabbergasted; he sat, mouth open, with a copy of Guitar World magazine open to the tablature of “Chop Suey!” Reading the fine print with a magnifying glass completely stunned, knocked flat onto his back, he learned a guitar can be tuned much lower than he had expected! Drop C in fact. A tuning he uses to this day. An artist and an album were born.

CD WALLET is the sixth HOMESHAKE full-length album and was mastered by Josh Bonati. “Early” from 2019’s Helium was featured in the fifth episode of HBO’s How To with John Wilson in 2020. Following 2021’s Under The Weather, HOMESHAKE toured extensively across North America, Europe, and Asia. In 2022, he released Pareidolia Catalog, a six-volume, 126-track instrumental mixtape, accompanied by a collaborative cassette box set and t-shirt with Brain Dead. That same year, HOMESHAKE co-wrote and featured on Eyedress’ “Spaghetti,” one of his first collaborations since “Love Is Only a Feeling” with Joey Bada$$ in 2017. More new music is forthcoming in 2024 as well as a North American headline tour to be announced with live band members Greg Napier, Mark Goetz, and Brad Loughead.
