Long-running Toronto jazz group Monkey House have announced the details of their sixth album, Remember the Audio.

Led by singer, songwriter, composer, arranger and producer Don Breithaupt, Monkey House are celebrating their 30th anniversary this year.

Remember the Audio follows the band’s 2019 release Friday, which topped the iTunes jazz chart and hit No. 11 on the Billboard contemporary jazz albums chart.

While Breithaupt had already written most of the music before the pandemic, he says “at least half of the lyrics were written in the spring of 2020, after the world shut down.” Not surprisingly, there’s a sense of foreboding and doomscrolling that comes with Remember the Audio — including in the title of the album’s lead single, The Future is Almost Gone.
