The Grammy Award nominated – and multi-million selling – Canadian rockers Barenaked Ladies, have announced the release of their new single Bringing It Home. Lifted from their current and fifteenth studio album Fake Nudes, released in November 2017, the single release arrives as Barenaked Ladies celebrate their 30th anniversary – and hot on the heels of their acclaimed a capella performance of Canada’s national anthem at the NBA All Star Game last month. The band, who comprise the long-standing partnership of Ed Robertson (guitar, vocals), Jim Creeggan (bass, vocals), Kevin Hearn (keyboard, guitar, vocals) and Tyler Stewart (drums, vocals), have also revealed they will be inducted into the Canadian Hall Of Fame during the 2018 Juno Awards in Vancouver on March 25.

Barenaked Ladies latest album Fake Nudes features fourteen freshly minted tracks including “Lookin’ Up” written by BNL frontman Ed Robertson, Kevin Griffin (Better Than Ezra) and Sam Hollander (who has co-written with Weezer, Fitz & The Tantrums and Train).
States Ed Robertson, “I'm incredibly proud of this collection of songs. This is a record where all band members shine. It's incredible to feel so excited about something 30 years into our career. I'm excited to get out and play these songs live.”
Fake Nudes captures the rock icons’ incredible camaraderie and musicianship that stand as a testament to the band’s remarkable longevity. Back on board is award-winning producer Gavin Brown, who has helmed the band’s last few projects, Grinning Streak (2013), Silverball (2015), and Ladies And Gentlemen: Barenaked Ladies And The Persuasions (2017). Fake Nudes features songs written by Ed Robertson, Kevin Hearn and Jim Creeggan.
