New album will be released via Pelagic Records this summer (not announced yet!) and Arabrot will release “sinnerman” as a first track on April 19, which will actually be a Single Record Store Day Only Release.
Quote from Kjetil (Årabrot main man) for the track “Sinnerman:
” ‘Old blues, the minstrels in dirty suits, the chaingang choirs, the gospels, the deep roots of folk and country music channeled through generations of blood and sweat, the love and hate of biblical proportions. This is all such a pivotal part of the greatest art. That being literature, music or even film. I watched the Nina Simone documentary one night and was deeply moved by her version of Sinnerman. A few days later I tried a different take of the song in our studio and it had a nerve I quite enjoyed. We tried it again some time later and that particular vibe was still there. I had no plan for the song at all, no idea if it actually was good or not. I wasn’t even sure it would be included on the album. Boy was I wrong.’ KN “
