The Canadian artist recently spoke about new music, saying that he’s “always writing and recording”.

“I’m always writing and recording little things all over the place – nothing cohesive like a project or anything but yeah it’s my hobby,” DeMarco explained.

“I’ll wake up, head to the garage and just toot around for most of the day…I mean I always have some songs – I don’t really know if they’d make an album.”

“I’m just happy to write stuff and in the past it was always like, ‘I’ve got a month between this year of touring and next year of touring so I’m going to make an album right now!’. I could still schedule my tours like that still but I think then I’d be in worse repair then I already am!”

“I’m just taking it a little breezy. I’ll have music soon, I don’t know what it’ll be like.”
