Bahamas Announce New Album 'Earthtones,' Share Charming New Track 'No Wrong':
Bahamas, the easy-going alias of Toronto-based singer/songwriter Afie Jurvanen, is returning with his first LP in four years. His new album Earthtones will be out on Jan. 19, 2018 via Brushfire/Republic Records, following up his 2014 record Bahamas is Afie.
Largely recorded in a compact, three-day session, Jurvanen finds himself joined by drummer James Gadson and bassist Pino Palladino, who separately have supported the likes of Beck and John Mayer, and together played alongside D'Angelo for his superlative comeback album, Black Messiah. The inclusion of the Vanguard members illuminates the grounded qualities that have always always been just beneath the surface of Bahamas' breezy music.
Billboard is pleased to share the first track off Earthtones, the charming and soul-bearing "No Wrong." A soft, cushiony piano ballad, Jurvanen dishes out twinkling guitar riffs as he croons about venturing on and doing what you love, even if doing so leaves you feeling fatigued and lonesome.
Listen to "No Wrong" below, and catch up with Afie in our interview, where he chats about Earthtone's inception, the sacredness of funk and the forward-thinking hip-hop that's influenced his creative streak.
