Long before Vancouver's Said The Whale became a JUNO Award-winning, radio chart-topping indie rock band, it was an exploratory songwriting experiment led by high school friends Tyler Bancroft and Ben Worcester. Now, a decade since their 2007 formation, they have taken the project back to its freeform roots while simultaneously venturing forward into uncharted art-pop territory.

As Long As Your Eyes Are Wide is the group's fifth album, and it was recorded amidst a period of turnover. Following the success of 2013's hawaiii, which spawned the Canadian rock/alternative number 1 hit "I Love You," bassist Nathan Shaw and longtime drummer Spencer Schoening both left the lineup. Now operating as a trio - with frontmen Tyler and Ben and keyboardist Jaycelyn Brown - the group briefly considered making separate solo records before ultimately deciding to enter the studio with no preconceptions and no concrete plan.
