Joel Plaskett chronology

Three is the third solo album by the Canadian indie rock musician Joel Plaskett, released on March 24, 2009.[2] Plaskett produced and recorded the album himself at his own Scotland Yard studio in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

In addition to being released as a triple album, the number three is reflected in several other aspects of the album. Each disc has nine songs on it, many of which are titled with a single word or phrase repeated three times. The album's release date of 3/24/09 also consists of numbers divisible by three, the cover features an image of Plaskett holding three fingers up, and preorders through MapleMusic were distributed with access to exclusive tickets, priced at $66, which would entitle the purchaser to a seat in the first twelve rows of Plaskett's concert at Toronto's Massey Hall the night before the album's release.[2] According to Plaskett, the discs tell a story of "going away, being alone and coming home", with each disc representing one of those three themes.[3]

Guest musicians on the album include singers Ana Egge and Rose Cousins, who were at the Folk Alliance festival in Memphis in 2007. The three of them tried jamming at Easley McCain Recording in Memphis, and Plaskett decided he wanted to have them on his new album and write parts for them.[4] Plaskett's father, Bill, was also a significant contributor to the album, offering songwriting and arranging, vocals, and playing bouzouki, acoustic guitar, tenor guitar, and piano.[3]

The album was shortlisted for the 2009 Polaris Music Prize.[5][6] It won Contemporary Album of the Year at the 2009 Canadian Folk Music Awards.

In June 2009, Plaskett released a follow-up EP, entitled Three More, which contained three songs not featured on the original album.

In 2010, Plaskett released a condensed version of Three called Three to One primarily for the non-Canadian market.[7]
