Toronto, ON – April 3, 2020 – The Blue Stones treated fans today with the release of Careless, the third single from their highly-anticipated new album due out later this year on Entertainment One (eOne). Careless shows a new side of the band, placing singer, Tarek Jafar’s soulful voice in the spotlight, complimented by a finessed mix of keys, vibey guitars, 808 kicks and snare. While the band has amassed a considerable following around their brand of dynamic alternative rock, Careless is an important track in their creative journey as it showcases their ability to produce music outside of what might be considered their ‘comfort zone’. Lyrically, the song exhibits the same sort of maturity, taking on a dark tone and tackling the subject of getting lost in love and vices – exemplified by the line, "I know you love me, but it won't change a thing." You can stream Careless  here now and watch the visual accompaniment on YouTube here.

About the track, Tarek stated, “Careless is a dark and vibey track that draws from a lot of our RnB influences to paint a story about making mistakes, and liking them.”

Careless follows The Blue Stones’ breakout single Shakin’ Off The Rust, which just crossed over 6 million streams worldwide and found the band headlining a largely sold out North American tour. Most recently, the duo were nominated for a JUNO award for Breakthrough Group Of The Year, adding to the excitement from both fans and critics regarding their upcoming full-length

When Tarek Jafar and Justin Tessier formed The Blue Stones, they were facing uncertainty about who they were individually. What they did know for sure, though, was that they wanted to make music together - and, so they did. Following the success of their debut album, Black Holes, the band quickly found a following in the alternative rock world that lead to them sharing the stage with the likes of grandson, Welshly Arms, and Reignwolf. As they began working on new music, The Blue Stones caught the attention of producer, Paul Meany (Mutemath, Twenty One Pilots), with whom they would eventually enter the studio with this past summer. Working with Meany lead to The Blue Stones exploring – and creating – music in a different way than they had before, and led to a new approach by Jafar when it came to tackling lyrics. The result was the band truly discovering who they were during the writing process. They’ve crafted something that shimmers with such purity and truth – musically and lyrically – that one can’t help but be swept up and carried off by the songs that will eventually form their as-yet-untitled sophomore album slated for release on Entertainment One next year. The duo may be redefining who they are, but their decision to pursue the rock’n’roll dream holds as strong as ever as they enter the next stage of their journey.
