Joel Plaskett catches the campfire spirit with “Hey Moon”

Fresh off the release of 2022’s Window Inn Sessions, the Halifax rocker looks up into the night sky on his latest single.

“Hey Moon,” Halifax rock troubadour Joel Plaskett asks on his latest single, “are you full yet?” It’s a simple line, but the kind of deft songwriting touch the 48-year-old has built his career on, ever since breaking out in the 1990s as part of the alt-rock band Thrush Hermit.

Described as “inspired by the memories of his own experiences at camp as a teenager, with pals who would later become Thrush Hermit,” Plaskett’s first musical release since 2022’s The Window Inn Sessions, Hey Moonis clear-eyed, stripped back and stirring—the kind of summer singalong that evokes starry nights at Long Lake or Kejimkujik, or long drives from Halifax to Mabou. Watch the lyric video below.
