Bahamas Release New Single “Way With Words” Today

Today, Juno Award-winning Toronto singer and songwriter Bahamas—a.k.a. Afie Jurvanen—releases his new single “Way With Words” vie Brushfire/Republic Records.

Check out “Way With Words” HERE.

It heralds the arrival of his fourth full-length album, Earthtones [Brushfire/Republic Records], in stores and at all digital retailers on January 19, 2018. Pre-order it HERE.

On the song Jurvanen stated: “It was hard for me to get excited about this song. I have recorded it a few times and nothing has stuck. We started as a trio with Pino (Palladino) and James (Gadson) and I tried not playing guitar at all at first… Pino came up with this this crazy chordal thing on bass and the song started to come to life more. Added guitars from Christine Bougie and myself while we were on a break touring with The Lumineers and Felicity Williams, Robin Dann and Alanna Stuart added all the harmony parts last December.”

Merging sparse, chilled-out production, hummable guitar, and a sweeping hook, “Way With Words” is the follow-up to Bahamas’ recent single “No Wrong.” Upon its arrival last month, “No Wrong” quickly racked up over half a million Spotify streams and ignited excitement among fans for the impending release of Earthtones. Watch the music video HERE!

Most importantly, the album upholds a tradition of progression for the artist. Recorded in Los Angeles with the ultimate rhythm section—Pino Palladino [Adele, Ed Sheeran, The Who] on bass and drummer James Gadson[Herb Alpert, D’Angelo]—Earthtones represents another creative breakthrough for Bahamas as the sound becomes deeper and more dynamic than ever before.
