Arkells collaborate with Cœur de Pirate, Aly & AJ on summery new single ‘Dance With You’

Arkells have shared a new collaboration with Cœur de Pirate and Aly & AJ on their summer anthem, “Dance With You.” The track comes alongside the announcement of the release date for their forthcoming album, Blink Twice which will be out September 23rd via Universal Music Canada.

The dancey new single features a catchy hook and French verses. “We are thrilled to be featured on this track,” said Aly & AJ explain of the collab. “And we’re happy to lend our vocals to this perfect summer jam to cut loose to.” Alongside the track, Arkells have shared a retro, glamorous music video packed with shots of all the artists dancing along beneath colourful effects.

“We’ve always loved French music,” frontman Max Kerman explains. “From 60s folk to modern electronic music, the sound of the language is unmistakably cool and romantic. Once the song began to come together, we reached out to Beatrice (Cœur De Pirate) to pen the French verse. Our pals Aly & AJ sang on the choruses and the song immeditaly felt like nothing we’ve ever been part of before.”

More on “Dance With You”:

“So happy I’m featured on this dance track fever dream of a song, with ROC legends Arkells and personal heroes of mine Aly & AJ,” Cœur de Pirate says of “Dance With You.” “Max called me out of the blue and was like ‘write me a verse that sounds like we’re having a good time in a bar in Paris’ and as someone who had just given birth at the time of that call, I thought that was right up my alley.”

In addition to “Dance With You,” Blink Twice features the previously released “Reckoning” and their Cold War Kids collaboration “Past Life.”
