Fresh off a Polaris long-list nomination, a couple of Juno Awards and sold out Canadian and international dates, Arkells have released a cover of Tobias Jesso Jr.’s “Can’t Stop Thinking About You”.
“When I heard the Tobias record, I immediately got jealous,” said Arkells lead singer Max Kerman. “The chord-melodies and string arrangement are right up my alley. He’s channelling all the 70’s piano-balladeers that I love so much. I think there is a real kinship in our songwriting, and dude’s got nicer curls than me too. Might be a long lost cousin.”
Stream the song below.
