The legendary Canadian rockers are launching a new album and celebrating career milestones

Barenaked Ladies’ new album In Flight marks a new chapter for the band. Maybe it’s just the passage of time, maybe the joy of getting back on the road after the COVID lockdown, but Ed Robertson has noticed a change in his own attitude which adjusted his tone on the new project.

Brimming with 14 vibrant tracks, the band’s 18th studio album seamlessly captures the hallmark playfulness and astute observation that have earned BNL global renown, artfully juxtaposed against a contemplative, philosophical backdrop. In Flight offers a sense of joy and appreciation for life, reminiscing on what BNL have achieved while looking forward to what the future may hold.

'We're a band that has committed to being who we are and what we are,' says Ed Robertson, 'and being as good as we can be—doing the best shows we can do, writing the best songs we can write—and we've done it for 35 years. I'm super proud of that.'

They are also celebrating the 25th anniversary of their chart-dominating, pop-culture-defining smash One Week, and the 35th anniversary of their first ever live show in Toronto.

Over the course of 35 years, the beloved quartet has sold over 15 million records worldwide and built up an arsenal of hits, such as If I Had $1,000,000, One Week, Pinch Me and The Big Bang Theory Theme. Widely acknowledged as one of the best live acts on the planet, BNL has hosted a cruise, had their own Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavour, and participated in the first-ever 'space-to-earth musical collaboration' with astronaut Chris Hadfield. To date, BNL has amassed eight JUNO Awards, garnered two GRAMMY nominations and was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame
