On Wednesday, October 17, 2018, as the country remembered Gord Downie following the one year anniversary of his passing, we played a song from a special package that was delivered earlier in the month.

Sideshow had received a package with no sender information and really no information outside of a note and CD saying it contained never-before-heard Tragically Hip Material.

We played the song ‘Wait So Long’ a couple of times on the 17th as a part of Gord FM.

You won’t find that audio here, but there is a live recording you can find below.

The song is also listed on the Hip’s official list of 61 unreleased songs.

Since Gord Downie’s passing, the band has said that they have recorded material they plan to share. Guitarist Rob Baker told the Toronto Star that at the time of Downie’s passing, the band was in the middle of recording an album and that they have a “double album’s worth of unreleased material.”
