Noah Kahan Shows “Northern Attitude” On New Single

Gearing up for a new chapter, singer and songwriter Noah Kahan unveils his new single entitled “Northern Attitude” out now via Mercury Records/Republic Records. It heralds the arrival of his highly anticipated third full-length album, Stick Season, available on October 14th.

“This song wasn’t supposed to exist. I was about to track guitar for another song on the album and had started fiddling around with a riff I made up in the moment. I had taken 2 edibles, so I wasn’t sure if I was just high and feeling myself, but it sounded really fucking cool. My co-producer Gabe thought so too, and told the engineer, Konrad Snyder, to start recording. Gabe sat down with a 12 string and plucked some melodies over the riff, and I began to sing. The lyrics I sang came from a place of total creative freedom, and I did not think they meant anything at all at first. It just felt fun to freestyle in a world class studio in my home state. We played it over 2 or 3 times on the microphone and walked into the control room to listen. It wasn’t until I listened to the lyrics that I had vomited out of my brain that I realized I had been trying to write them for years,” says Noah.

He continues, “I was singing about isolation, about loneliness, about trying to assess who you are and where your life is going, and about accepting that and opening yourself up to love either way. Vermont has the second smallest population in the United States, and the second most rural population too. By definition, it is one of the loneliest places to live in the world. I felt that infinite loneliness in the years I spent living there after I graduated high school. I watched as my friends felt it and as my parents and family felt it too. I wanted to write a song about that loneliness, and what it means to the way we exist and the way we approach relationships. All that time in solitude can bring about clarity in oneself, and I believe this song is an exploration of that self-realization. Thank you to those who supported this tune from the beginning and a warm embrace to my fellow humans raised on little light.”
