Arkells deliver a new track, “Swing Swing Swing,” off their highly anticipated album Blink Once due September 22nd, available for pre-save and pre-order now.

“There’s a tradition in gospel and soul music where you find these transcendent chordal arrangements that make you feel everything at once,” says frontman Max Kerman. “That’s what we were chasing with this song – throw some blistering trumpet in there and we have something that feels very new to us. My favourite songs have three key ingredients: they make you wanna 1) sing and 2) dance and 3) have a cry all at once,” says Kerman. “Hopefully each *Swing* in this song can do that for you, and you’ll actively feel all 3 if you’re coming to a show this weekend.”

Blink Once, a bi-coastal project which was recorded in LA and completed in Toronto, includes current hit single, “You Can Get It” featuring K.Flay, which has charted in the #1 spot at Canadian Alternative Radio for 4 weeks and is their fifth #1 at the format. “You Can Get It” was prominently featured in the E3 launch of the Forza Horizon 5 video game trailer this summer. Blink Once also includes #1 track “Years In The Making,” “One Thing I Know,” as well as “All Roads,” which serves as the soundtrack to #TogetherAgain, a national vaccine awareness PSA to combat vaccine hesitancy.
