“Song and Dance Man,” the title track from Collett’s sixth full-length album, finds the Toronto indie troubadour back at centre stage, with three-minutes-and-change and a story to sing. Featuring the bright production touch of Bahamas’ Alfie Jurvanen, it covers the trials and triumphs of the modern musician with the wit and melody of classic Collett: contemplative reflections on aging, backed with an affinity for freewheeling ‘70s dance music. The album’s themes of love and loneliness, sun and shadows are buoyed by its souring sound, spacious grooves and languid melodies.
