Commonwealth is the eleventh studio album by Canadian rock band, Sloan. In 2013, the band revealed plans for a double album, with each of the four sides featuring a solo suite by a different band member. In May 2014, it was announced that the new album would be titled Commonwealth and would be released in September 2014. On July 14, 2014, the band announced the official release date for the album September 9 and released the album's lead single, Keep Swinging Downtown. The album's cover was.

Sloan - Get Out. Sloans Commonwealth was released in 2014, and marks the bands second double album at least on vinyl. This time around, they moved away from their standard method of total band democracy, and instead claimed a single side of each LP for themselves. The four cards on the album cover represent the band members: Jay Ferguson is the King of Diamonds, Chris Murphy is the King of Hearts, Patrick Pentland is the King of Shamrocks not clubs, as Pentland is of Irish origin, and Andrew Scott is the King of Spades. Each band member is the master of that particular side, so each members contribution. Commonwealth, their eleventh studio album and first in three years, following graceful career highlight The Double Cross, pays titular homage to both the bands Canadian heritage and their democratic songwriting partnership. It also manages to break new ground, no small feat when you consider theyve been at this for a quarter-century: instead of their usual mishmash of each members compositions, each of the bands four members has one full side to themselves, all coming together to make up a sprawling double album. There's signature traits that have marked each Sloan album since their 1994 breakthrough Twice Removed. Sloan Format: Audio CD. Please retry. Show details. Buy the selected items together.

There is a second pressing available on the latter part of the Commonwealth tour with one LP red and the other black. Also comes bundled with a CD version of the album.
The first pressing was supposed to have been red and black as well, but due to a mix up at the plant it wound up double-black. I can't recall how many there are. 5000, perhaps?
