The Great Detachment is the sixth album by Canadian indie rock band Wintersleep, released in 2016 on Dine Alone Records. The album received its widest publicity for "Amerika", a single whose video painted a seemingly apocalyptic portrait of contemporary American life before cutting away to a clip from a campaign speech by Donald Trump, several months before the 2016 presidential election. The song was their biggest hit since "Weighty Ghost" in 2007, reaching #1 on Canada's Alternative and Rock charts. The album was a shortlisted Juno Award finalist for Adult Alternative Album of the Year at the Juno Awards of 2017.
