New Zealand’s Katchafire are spreading their roots reggae love with new single ‘Love Today’ out February 9 (Universal NZ/Zojak Worldwide) on iTunes, Spotify & YouTube. ‘Love Today’ is the third track to be lifted from their forthcoming new album ‘Legacy’ (out April 2018). Made with the support of NZ On Air.
Jordan Bell who produced and sings this song said “’Love Today’ is about loving something so much that it empowers you & sets you free from your normal world to change for the better. It’s about loving what you do, whether it’s sport or dancing… we attract what we love. It’s also about giving love from your heart, so someone can lean on your love. Unconditionally. Give love today and see what happens!”.
Speaking of the recording process, Jordan says “The way this song came together is the epitome of the legacy kaupapa (theme). Katchafire is such a huge family – not only the core members but international members as well as family that have housed, fed, & looked after us on this journey. They have all played a part.”
“This songs’ conception began in New Zealand and then went on to be flavoured by the world. The songs’ life then went global! ‘Love Today’ has many places to call home; like a child that is raised and loved by many parents… A true family effort and labour of love”.
An eclectic piece that has come together in all corners of the globe, ‘Love Today’ was written in Ngaruawahia NZ; the vocals were recorded in New Zealand, Hawaii, Australia and Hollywood; the music was recorded in Jamaica, Hollywood & Hawaii; the track was edited in NZ and Jamaica; then mixed & mastered in Jamaica!
Never has a Katchafire song been loved by so many great hands. This is a true reflection of present day Katchafire and the legacy being passed down.
