Afie Jurvanen, also known as Bahamas, is gearing up for the release of his new LP Bahamas is Afie. In honor of the occasion, he’s shared a charming video discussing everything from hair to, well, the honestly titled record.
The video follows Jurvanen and comrade/food extraordinaire Russ on a day of coffee drinking, grocery shopping (for Russ’ restaurant Aunties & Uncles), cat watching and a little jamming to his new album for the first time.
The followup to 2011’s Barchords, Bahamas is Afie is Jurvanen’s third album, and marks a new phase for the Canadian singer-songwriter. “I guess more than the last record, I just feel like it’s some fully realized version of me,” he says to Russ in the video. His first self-produced release, we’ve come to expect good things from the former Feist guitarist.
The album will be released Aug. 19 via Brushfire Records, and you can check out “Bahamas is Afie… (And Russ)” above. Jurvanen is on tour now.
