The band comments: “Our new single »Bourdon« is out on all streaming platforms today! A tricky song to pull off, but we’ve nonetheless been performing it at almost every show since we wrote it, and we’re super happy with how the studio version turned out!
Thanks a lot to Jansen Records for releasing this and our upcoming studio album »Earthbound«!
Recorded by Dag Erik Johansen in Athletic Sound in June last year. Mixed by Marcus Forsgren and mastered by Christian Obermayer. Beautiful cover by Robin Gnista as well.”

Emerging from an ocean of fuzz like a Kyuss that went to jazz school, power trio Kanaan return with their fourth studio album in as many years. »Bourdon« is the first tantalising glimpse into this otherworldly band’s brilliant new opus.
»Earthbound« will be released 12th November via Jansen Records – a change in direction for the still-young group. Where Kanaan’s former albums have been jazzy and psychedelic explorations, with forays into kraut and free improvisation, the new album »Earthbound« comes at you heavier than a ton of bricks. The heavier Kanaan bear elements of the best of stoner rock, psych and sludge.

Inspired by bands such as Colour Haze, Hawkwind, Elder, Motorpsycho and Acid Mothers Temple, »Earthbound« serves up plenty of surprising twists and turns, beautiful and mellow passages and masterful musicianship. Although never flashy, the whole album is a showcase of the three wildly talented musicians as they plough their way through enormous riffs and thunderous grooves.
Searching to perfect their hybrid of heavy rock and psychedelic jazz influences, the band isolated themselves in Halden’s Athletic Sound studios, working day and night to accomplish what became »Earthbound«, a quantum leap for their sound in terms of sheer heaviness and psychedelic extravaganza compared to their previous albums.
