Arkells will release their new record Morning Report next Friday August 5th and we’re loving the first single, Private School. Turns out there’s a song on the record called Drake’s Dad which is appropriately about…Drake’s dad. It’s been called, “An uplifting song about mischeif, missing home, and meeting the right kind of strangers.”
According to Arkells frontman Max Kerman, “The following is based on a true story…last summer I was on a road trip with my best friends through the American South…and in the middle of the night, we happened to meet Drake’s dad — Dennis Graham — in a Memphis bar.”
The best part of this Canadian story unravelling in the American South is it leads to Drake’s dad actually being cast in the music video!
