Following on from their recently released acoustic album Campfire Chords, Arkells recently made their return with a brand new banger called You Can Get It. The new single features rapper K.Flay with whom the band recorded in-person in Los Angeles prior to 2020’s lockdown. On June 13th 2021 the track was used for the video game “Forza Horizon 5” trailer as part of the Microsoft & Bethesda showcase during the virtual E3 video game convention. Watch & listen below.
Forza Horizon 5 Trailer featuring Arkells
This song is about finding your momentum, the potential energy that’s inside of you. The moment when you scream to yourself “I DON’T GIVE A F*CK TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT! YOU CAN GET IT!” So often, the future doesn’t just feel unknowable – it feels impossible. We wanted this song to feel like possibility. Like the world is opening up. Like you are powerful
In the accompanying video, a fun take on the iconic game show Wheel Of Fortune, frontman Max Kerman takes on the role of co-host Vanna White. His bandmates play through a game of puzzles that spell out meaningful experiences we’ve longed for while in lockdown. The ‘wheel’ depicts what’s coming up next, whether that is a live performance break, experiences with loved ones, or announcing K.Flay’s entrance to the song. Watch the video below.
