A Singer Must Die is a collaboration between the Canadian music organization Art of Time Ensemble and vocalist Steven Page. It is Page's first release following his departure from Barenaked Ladies, although it was recorded before he left the band and originally conceived as a side project, and his first solo album since 2005's The Vanity Project. It contains ten tracks, which are covers. Page performed all of the songs on the album live with the Art of Time Ensemble on June 20 and 21, 2008 at the Enwave Theatre in Toronto. The concert was broadcast on CBC radio the following month. Originally, the live concert was not intended to result in an album, but because of the success of the concert, they decided to go into the studio to record the songs.


The album was put on Page's website for preorder about a month before its release. A certain number of preordered copies were autographed by Page, as well as Andrew Burashko, who is the pianist in the Art of Time Ensemble.
