Canadian rock band Arkells have shared a stream of a new track called “Knocking On The Door” from their most recent album Morning Report. Frontman Max Kerman commented on how the song came together; “We’ll be knocking at the door, ten times, followed by 10 soul band shots, James Brown style. It started as a random moment in the middle of a set in Philly on January 19th and eventually became a refrain we began building every night on tour.”

“The day after we got home from tour in the middle of February, Tim sent me this drum groove with a heavy, southern marching band vibe. I started playing piano over the song and singing ‘That’s me, I’m knocking at the door!’ By March 10th we were in the studio recording the song. Now it’s out. There’s some ideas that need time to simmer, and then there are some ideas that need to be recorded immediately. From the moment the song was born, we couldn’t wait to finish it with our extended players – The Northern Soul horns and The Arkettes. Can’t wait to play it live this summer.”
