For the Fire’s first new track since the pandemic put a stop to their international touring plans, “Circle Back” is all about summer lovin’ and good vibes, and to remember when things get rocky – love always wins!
Katchafire drummer Jordan Bell is at the helm of “Circle Back”. Jordan is no stranger to stepping out from behind the kit and up to the mic with Katchafire – his past credits also include ‘Sweet As’, ‘One Stop Shop’, ‘Down With You’, ‘Love Today’, ‘Wasted In Love’, ‘One More Day’ and ‘Walk With Me’. JB said “It’s been a while! The brothers of the Fire cant wait to get out on the road again and play this new tune “Circle Back”, and some old favourites of course!”.
This will be first single from Katchafire since their 2018 ‘Legacy’ album, which hit No.1 on the US iTunes Reggae Chart and spent several weeks in the Top 5 of USA’s NACC World Charts & the Roots Music Report World Charts. ‘Legacy’ was the bands 5th studio album, which saw them nominated for Best Roots Artist & Best Maori Artist at the New Zealand Music Awards and Group Of The Year at the Island Music Awards in Hawaii, and ascend to the No.3 most streamed New Zealand artist on Spotify globally.
