Corey Hart releases a new single, with an 5-Song EP and tour to follow in 2019
The Sunglasses at Night man himself, Corey Hart has announced the details of his first major arena tour across Canada since 1986! As well, he’s released the seasonal track “Another December” that will be included on the new 5-song EP titled Dreaming Time Again, which also includes the up-tempo rocker “First Rodeo” featuring Jim Cuddy on vocals. The legendary Bob Ezrin produced the EP, which will be Hart’s first studio collection of songs in over 20 years, with the title track being released as the first official single on January 14, 2019.
Having sold over 16 million records worldwide by amassing 9 consecutive US Billboard Top 40 Hits and scoring an impressive 31 top 40 singles here in Canada (including 12 – Top 10 Hits), Hart was inducted into Canada’s prestigious Walk Of Fame in 2016.
Hart’s iconic debut single, “Sunglasses At Night” was an international hit, and the video became a staple on MTV during the summer of 1984 and claimed the first-ever Juno awarded in the Video Of The Year category that same year. His sophomore album “Boy In The Box” achieved Diamond status certification (1 million-plus sales) faster than any other Canadian artist in history by spawning four hit singles lead by his classic anthem, “Never Surrender,” which spent nine weeks at number one in Canada, winning Single of the Year at the Juno Awards in 1985.
