Live from the studio, singer-songwriter and former Hey Rosetta! frontman Tim Baker performs “Some Day.” Baker’s upcoming album The Festival is due out October 7, 2022.
“It’s very simply about the desire to start again someday,” Baker explained about the song. “Somewhere new, where you can be a better version of yourself, and live a fuller, richer, truer life than what you are currently living.”
“As a living human being, I’ve always enjoyed upbeat pop shuffles full of heartfelt lyrics and playful countermelodies,” Baker adds. “The ‘song’ just sort of fell out – one of those easy writes that rushes out and requires only light editing. As soon as I played it with my friends Ben Whiteley and Phil Melanson, and we sunk into that shuffle, and they wailed those falsetto backups there in Ben’s garage, I couldn’t wait to record this and get it out into the world.”
Tim Baker parted ways with Hey Rosetta! after the award-winning band said farewell in 2017. He released his debut solo Forever Overhead in 2019. The album earned him a Juno nomination for Songwriter of the Year, three East Coast Music Awards, and a spot on the Polaris longlist.
Baker began working on The Festival amid the covid-19 pandemic. He withdrew to his home province of Newfoundland to focus on writing new material. “Writing The Festival saved my life,” says Baker. “I could immerse myself in a different world. It gave me a reason to go on, something to hold onto.”
Tim has announced a run of North American tour dates throughout November and December. He will be in Toronto on December 9th to perform at Massey Hall.
