After gaining more momentum and new fans from playing shows across the Toronto area, Adelaide took some time off this winter season to write and record some new music. The alternative-rock band spent weeks perfecting their new music; songs that previously were only known to their fans who saw them live. The first cut off their upcoming EP is called “Care”.
The track was born after the band’s vocalist and guitarist, Dan Taylor, took a solo writing trip to Montreal. “I was just trying to escape the hustle and bustle of my everyday life,” Taylor explained. He was struck by the phrase, “if you care to know,” but he originally had a difficult time fitting it into a melody. For Taylor, “if you care to know” meant:
“I’ve got something I can share with you, and something I can show you, but only if you’re interested in coming along for the ride with me.”
“Care” is just as honest and heartfelt as the band’s first single, “Can’t Lose”; however, the band has stepped up their game with the song’s production. When Taylor returned home from his writing trip, the track really came together when the rest of the band added in their personal touches including, “the killer bass line and chorus lead riff,” Dan recalls.

Adelaide’s forthcoming EP will be released on March 2, 2018. “Care” was engineered by Alex Dimauro and mixed by Mike Brandolino. The track was co-produced along with the band.
