Bruce Cockburn Releases New Single 'To Keep The World We Know' Featuring Susan Aglukark

By Stevie Connor.

As always Bruce Cockburn has his finger firmly on the pulse of global issues; climate change, human greed, wildfires, floods, and he eloquently talks to the issues on his latest single, To Keep The World We Know, featuring Susan Aglukark, taken from his latest album, O Sun O Moon.

As with so many Cockburn albums, the musicianship on O Sun O Moon is superb. Produced by Colin Linden the album features vocalists Shawn Colvin, Buddy Miller, Allison Russell, Sarah Jarosz, Susan Aglukark and Ann and Regina McCrary, with Janice Powers on keyboards, Gary Craig and Chris Brown on drums, Viktor Krauss on bass, accordionist Jeff Taylor, violinist Jenny Scheinman and multi-instrumentalist Jim Hoke.

Bruce Cockburn has enjoyed an illustrious career shaped by politics, spirituality, and musical diversity. His remarkable journey has seen him embrace folk, jazz, rock, and worldbeat styles while earning high praise as a prolific, inspired songwriter and accomplished guitarist. He remains deeply respected for his activism and humanist song lyrics that thread throughout his career. On all his albums Cockburn has deftly captured the joy, pain, fear, and faith of human experience in song.

O Sun O Moon is his first vocal album since 2017’s Bone on Bone, and his first full-length album of original music since 2019's instrumental Crowing Ignites. Bruce Cockburn has won 13 JUNO Awards, an induction into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame, a Governor General’s Performing Arts Award, and has been made an Officer of the Order of Canada, among many other accolades. He has 22 gold and platinum records including a six-times platinum record for his Christmas album. Cockburn continues to tour internationally.
