The fifteenth studio album from Barenaked Ladies, Fake Nudes is finely crafted yet flowing with carefree energy, stylistically adventurous yet rooted in timeless melodies and unforgettable hooks. As Robertson explains, the close collaboration that fueled the making of the album has everything to do with the band's deep connection on an artistic and individual level. "It's all about trust, and knowing that you can rely on the strengths of your bandmates," he says. "Whenever I go into the studio with new demos, I can always trust Jim and Ty and Kev's instincts, and know that adding each of their personalities to the mix will make the songs that much better."

In bringing their latest album to life, Barenaked Ladies found their chemistry and camaraderie stronger than ever before. With next year marking the thirtieth anniversary of the Toronto-based band -- which has now sold over 14 million albums worldwide and earned multiple JUNO Awards and Grammy nominations -- Fake Nudes emerges as their most dynamic album to date.

Reuniting with award-winning producer Gavin Brown (who also helmed 2017's Ladies And Gentlemen: Barenaked Ladies And The Persuasions, 2015's Silverball, and 2013's Grinning Streak), Barenaked Ladies recorded Fake Nudes at their long-beloved Noble Street Studios in Toronto. With the tracklist pared down from dozens of song sketches brought in by Robertson, Hearn and Creeggan, the album builds off the band's harmony-rich hybrid of folk and pop/rock and pushes into more eclectic sonic terrain. Whether they're weaving in elements of electronic music or classic country, Barenaked Ladies' anything-goes approach instills Fake Nudes with a powerful vitality that makes each track all the more infectious.

"The diversity that's always been a hallmark of this band is really liberating when we're making records, because we never feel restricted to a certain sound," Robertson notes. "It's way more malleable than that: whatever sound we all create together, that's Barenaked Ladies."
