showcases a new collection of songs where Arkells continue to push their sound and creativity
to a new level.
As the band stayed busy making music during the last two years, they always knew they would come out of the pandemic with two distinct records - Blink Once and Blink Twice.
The first single Reckoning
was released earlier this year and was followed by current radio single Past Life
featuring Cold War Kids.
"Blink Twice is about going to new places and seeing the world with fresh eyes.
"You can either move through life and grow stubborn, or you can grow curious", says frontman Max Kerman.
"We've never had an album with so many guest artists along for the ride.
"Everyone from Cold War Kids, to Aly & AJ, Tegan and Sara, Lights, Cœur De Pirate, Joel Plaskett and Wesley Schultz of The Lumineers.
"At our core we'll always be a living, breathing soul band. But Blink Twice lets us be that and more."
With no shortage of new music, the band has shared a brand new song Dance With You
featuring Cœur De Pirate and Aly & AJ.
"We've always loved French music. From 60s folk to modern electronic music, the sound of the language is unmistakably cool and romantic," continues Kerman.
"Once the song began to come together, we reached out to Beatrice (Cœur De Pirate) to pen the French verse.
"Our pals Aly & AJ sang on the choruses and the song immediately felt like nothing we've ever been part of before."
