Ooh La La

Ooh La La is a forthcoming album by the Crash Test Dummies scheduled to be released through digital download in 2010.


On November 11, 2008, Brad Roberts announced in his featured blog on the band's website that he and Ellen Reid are presently recording a new album tentatively titled "Toys", adding that the other three members of the band are busy with their families and are unable to commute to New York City to contribute[1].

The following day, Roberts specified in a subsequent journal entry that he has "about 20 songs now, and must pick the best ten." He added Ellen Reid will feature as lead vocalist on one track, which he elaborated on November 18th as "achingly beautiful". On November 23rd, Roberts added that some "very accomplished, high-priced players and arrangers have volunteered to play on it for free, just because they think it is extremely unique" and the record is "falling into place like a finished crossword puzzle."[2]

On December 1, 2008, Roberts confirmed he originally planned to release the album in a digital-only format, but added that, although getting the record to stores is out of the question, he would "consider running some CDs with artwork if there is any fan interest." and mailing them by request to fans.[3]

On December 12, 2008, Roberts added that the record "is turning into a two volume work, with 20 songs completed (unmixed) to date" and "won't be released until early Spring".[4]

In July 2009, Roberts confirmed that the album will have a digital only release[5]. In addition, the album had the new title of "Ooh La La"[6] In August, Roberts stated that the album was almost ready for mastering, though he decided add some more instrumentation first. He also expressed amazement at how an album that began only with an optigan and omnichord has grown to symphonic proportions.[7]. Roberts posted on update in November that the album is mastered and slated for a spring release,[8] however he recently posted an update stating the release date for the record remains unclear due to several reasons.[9]
