BADBADNOTGOOD have just released two brand new tracks. The Toronto-based jazz outfit composed “Goodbye Blue” / “Glide (Goodbye Blue PT 2),” two separate songs released as double-singles — as its title suggests, the second track is “part two” of the first. The first track sees a feature from Jonah Yano, who also collaborated on BADBADNOTGOOD’s most previous single “Key to Love.”

“Goodbye Blue” measures at approximately four minutes, kicking off with delicately plucked acoustic guitar notes as Yano seamlessly enters the track with smooth vocals. Most of the track is centered around Yano’s soulful delivery, set up by a series of intricately detailed jazz arrangements. Syncopated basslines by Chester Hansen drive the track forward, complemented by lightly muted keys by James Hill and a soaring sax solo by Leland Whitty close to the end. “Glide (Goodbye Blue PT 2)” was inspired by the aforementioned song, where BADBADNOTGOOD decided to build upon its feel, this time as an instrumental track.

In a statement, Hansen offered extra insight into how the band came up with the songs: “The end of 2018 was the beginning of the first long break from touring that we’ve had basically since we started as a band. It was a time of reflection and the opportunity for us to explore all sorts of things. Goodbye Blue was one of the songs that came out of this. Eventually, we worked some of the melodies and feeling into a second instrumental which felt like it stood on its own, but was definitely a companion piece.”
