Arkells release their brand new album, Blink Once, via Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.
Blink Once is about resilience. It’s about grieving with loss and fallouts and finding your way back,” says frontman Max Kerman. “The making of the album began before the pandemic, but the material seems to hit harder after everything we’ve been through over the past 18 months. These songs are about finding comfort in your family, community and music.”
BLINK ONCE TRACKLIST:
You Can Get It (ft. K.Flay)
One Thing I Know
Nobody Gets Me Like You Do
Swing Swing Swing
Years In The Making
Arm In Arm
The new release comes hot on the heels of Arkells’ triumphant return to live music, three history-making nights at Toronto’s Iconic Budweiser Stage, in August. Previously announced as a two-night affair, a third show was added to meet the overwhelming demand and enthusiasm for a return to live music this summer, as the band played to over 30,000 fans.
Blink Once, a bi-coastal project which was recorded in LA and completed in Toronto, includes the current hit single, You Can Get It featuring K.Flay, which was prominently featured in the E3 launch of the Forza Horizon 5 video game trailer this summer.
Blink Once also includes tracks Years In The Making, One Thing I Know, Swing Swing Swing, Strong, as well as All Roads, which serves as the soundtrack to #TogetherAgain, a national vaccine awareness PSA to combat vaccine hesitancy in Canada.
