New Wild Everywhere is the fifth studio album by Canadian folk rock band Great Lake Swimmers, released April 3, 2012 on Nettwerk.[1]

The album was recorded at Toronto's Revolution Recording studio, the first time the band has recorded in a traditional studio.[2] However, in keeping with the band's more established process of recording in unconventional locations, one track, "The Great Exhale", was recorded in the Lower Bay station of the Toronto Transit Commission's subway system in Toronto.[1] A preview track, "Easy Come Easy Go", was released in January 2012[2] and was the number-one song on the CBC Radio 3 R3-30 singles chart for the week ending on February 25.[3]

The track "Les Champs de progéniture" is a French translation of another album track, "Fields of Progeny".[4]

The album is also available in a "deluxe edition" for advance orders, featuring several live recordings and rarities.

The album debuted at number 33 on the Canadian Albums Chart.[5] The album was named as a longlisted nominee for the 2012 Polaris Music Prize on June 14, 2012.[6]


The artwork used throughout the layout of New Wild Everywhere was created by Midwest-based printmaker Nick Wroblewski. The woodcut print featured on the cover is entitled "Suspension of Disbelief".[7]
