The Kings are back! After a 10-year hiatus spent, in part, writing and producing for some of the most notable artists in the music industry – Drake, Sia, Maroon 5, Nelly Furtado, Tina Turner, Jason Mraz, Selena Gomez, Jessie J, Shawn Mendes, James Blunt, Andra Day, Olly Murs, Rachel Platten, The Arkells, Ricky Martin, Dua Lipa, and Andy Grammer, to name a few – The Philosopher Kings have returned with a brand new single, and stellar music video to match. The insanely catchy Still The One is available now on all digital streaming platforms, and the video premiered today on ET Canada.com. Check it out below.
“It was great getting back together with my band brothers to do another music video,”comments frontman, Jarvis Church. “It really feels as if no time has passed. The idea behind the video is really simple. We’ve always felt like our live show is the core of the Philosopher Kings so we wanted the video to capture the energy we have live. I’ve worked with Aaron A many times over the past 15 years. It has been incredible to watch his progression into one of the top directors in Canada. I’m a big fan of his.”
The Philosopher Kings took the Canadian music industry by storm with their infectious melodies, undeniable energy and a unique combination of pop and alternative rock. Their recording career began with the band’s self-titled debut in 1994, which spawned the hit single, Charms, with the album eventually earning Gold status in Canada. Winning a JUNO Award in 1996 for Best New Group and landing on the U.S. Top 40 chart that same year with Charms, the band criss-crossed the country, becoming one of the most sought after and popular live acts on the circuit. Their commercial, critical and popular breakthrough occurred with the release of their second album, Famous, Rich and Beautiful in 1997, which was certified Platinum.
Fast forward to 2017, The Philosopher Kings have reunited with a renewed energy, revitalized focus – and brand new material. Stay tuned for their forthcoming fifth studio album, Return of The Kings, which is set for release later this year
