Toronto pop-rock quartet Jane’s Party release classic rock anthem and ‘70s jam, “Stay With Me”, which features Ewan Currie (The Sheepdogs/ BROS) on vocals and Mix Clilverd (Tom Odell) on slide guitar.
This is the second single from their forthcoming album, with Jane’s Party currently at work with Zeus—who served as a big inspiration for the band coming up as musicians—to foil the pop-heavy production of 2019’s Casual Island, embracing a raw, “back-to-the-garage” approach that captures the essence of their notoriously tight tour-de-force of a live show.
Produced by Carlin Nicholson and Mike O’Brien of Zeus, the band describes “Stay With Me” as “a rock and roll song – pure and simple – that perfectly sums up the aesthetic of our upcoming record and artistic endeavour.” Tom Ionescu (guitar/vocals) explains that
“for the last few years, ‘Stay With Me’ has been our off-script, wildcard live track that we whip out when we want to inject some energy into our stage dynamic and into our audience – a track that can feel like it can do anything; either completely fall apart, or blow a hole right through the ceiling at any point. We’re so pumped to finally get to share that live experience with everyone. Getting to include some of our favourite musicians made the live-off-the-floor recording and production process feel fresh and unexpected for us too. The final product feels like a glorious celebration of some of the best times we’ve ever had on stage, during a time when getting back to playing in front of people is what dreams are made of.”
JUNO Award-winning engineer Jay Dufour mixed the “party track – I felt like I was right there with the band rocking out!” Jeff Giles (keys/guitar/vocals) adds,
“Being a pop band, we don’t often get to stretch out and really let loose on our instruments, but ‘Stay With Me’ is one where the boundaries seem to fade away and it feels right releasing a song that’s perfectly rough around the edges.” Currie jokes, “The good fellas of Jane’s Party asked me to do my best Rod Stewart, so we had a few beers together and made this song. Just kidding, we did it via the internet (social distancing, don’t you know).”
