Bahamas announces fifth studio album with “Own Alone”



Afie Jurvanen (a.k.a Bahamas) has shared the intersection of funk, folk, blues and some r&b in his new single, “Own Alone,” which will be featured on his just-announced upcoming fifth studio album Sad Hunk, set for release on Oct. 9 with Brushfire Records. The track is the first project that Jurvanen has released since his fourth album Earthtones from 2018. 

The 11-track self-reflective Sad Hunk is described as “an album inspired by domestic life” that “embodies an undaunted self-awareness.” with “Own Alone” speaking to the distinguished difference between physically being alone and internally feeling lonely, especially within an era of fast-paced change and novelty. 

“I think I’m always trying to get closer and closer to the source, like the way old blues albums were made—there’s no production; all the emotion you’re hearing is just the players, the room, the song,” Jurvanen explains of the approach taken for the new album. “It’s almost like a photograph as opposed to a painting, where if you don’t like the color of a certain flower in the garden, you change it. I want you to hear every word I’m saying and take in the song and make it your own.
