Juno Award winning Canadian rock band, Sam Roberts Band, is back with their new single, “If You Want It”. The track garnered an exclusive global premiere with Apple Beats 1 and The Strombo Show this past Saturday. The episode, Takeover: The New Canada, aired July 2, timed to celebrate the Canada Day long weekend. Listen to the episode here.
“If You Want It” sets the tone for the forthcoming Sam Roberts Band studio album, set for release later this year. The track, which was produced by Graham Walsh (Alvvays, Viet Cong, METZ) and Sam Roberts at the Bathouse Recording Studios, perfectly captures the quintet at their best: creative instrumental melodies and memorable lyrics that allow their listeners to interpret their own meanings from the songs. In Roberts’ own words: “It’s about a trip to Hell…And hopefully back…”. Listen to the track here!
Sam Roberts Band also recently headlined the KOI Fest at the Parking Lot music festival in Kitchener. Check out our photos here.
