Former Hey Rosetta! frontman Tim Baker has just dropped “All Hands,” a new track off of his forthcoming debut album, Forever Overhead, which revolves around kinship and connection.
His new joy-filled indie folk single explores human connection through the lens of a thank you letter, as Baker shows his appreciation for his past and the people who have gotten him to where he is today. “This is a song about my past,” Baker, who grew up in St. John’s, Newfoundland, explains. “It’s a song of homesickness that grew into a nostalgic anthem. I was thinking of the Newfoundland diaspora (or any diaspora, really). And it turned out celebratory – sort of reveling in the fact that there is this place that is an inescapable part of me.”
Listen to “All Hands” below.
Forever Overhead is set for release on April 19th, and you can catch Tim Baker at the Great Hall on April 23rd, 24th, and 25th.
