Wooden Arms is the follow-up to the critically acclaimed Close to Paradise, which vaulted the man and his band to international stardom in 2007, and sold over 100,000 copies. The album, self-produced, comprises 11 brand new tracks recorded in a few short months at the end of 2008 in Montreal. The internationally praised Montreal band toured non-stop for two years following the initial release of Close to Paradise in 2006, and in many ways Wooden Arms is the story and sound of a band waking up in strange places all around the world. In 2007, Watson won Canada’s prestigious Polaris Prize, turning more than a few heads in beating out offerings from Arcade Fire & Feist.
