Heading into the final months of what has been the biggest year of their career, The Reklaws are bringing the party to their fans today with the release of their third album, Good Ol’ Days. Debuting three new songs “Middle Fingers,” “People Don’t Talk About” and the album’s title track “Good Ol’ Days,” the album also packages together a collection of songs the multi-PLATINUM duo have shared over the past couple of years during the pandemic, as they close out this chapter and celebrate the major milestones accomplished through these tracks. 

“We just can’t wait to share this album with our fans,” said Stuart Walker, half of The Reklaws duo. “We’re so in love with the first two albums we’ve been able to share but this one just feels different. With most of the songs being written and released during the pandemic, a difficult time for so many people, it has become a collection of tracks that tell the story of what we were going through at the time. This release allows us to close that time of our lives and look forward to what’s in front of us.”

“We learned and experienced so much over these past two years, so bringing this album together feels like a legit victory,” shared Jenna Walker. “Our music and trying to keep showing up the best we can for our amazing fans has really given us purpose and moments to look forward to over the past couple years, and we are forever grateful to each and every one of you for being by our side and helping us continue to live out this crazy dream of ours.” 

With a cheeky nod to what the last two years have brought, Good Ol’ Days has allowed The Reklaws an opportunity to share some of their favourite, previously unreleased songs like the album’s title track “Good Ol’ Days.” Written from their cottage during the pandemic, the track is a nostalgic look back at The Reklaws’ roots, reminiscent of their fan-favourite  “Where I’m From.” The album also debuts “Middle Fingers,” an anthem for the girls and a solo track that Jenna has wanted to share with fans for a long time, written by close friend Emily Reid. “Every time I go into a writing room this is the song I want to write. It’s a new season for the girls and this song is really a celebration of choosing to move on from something that no longer serves you. We played it a lot this summer and the response was epic, without even releasing it yet,” said Jenna.

The third new track on Good Ol’ Days is a deeply personal one. Dedicated to anyone going through a heavy time and feeling isolated in their struggle, “People Don’t Talk About,” embodies the loneliness and weight many were feeling at the time. “It’s the hardest and most vulnerable song we’ve ever written and recorded, but also the most important and most powerful,” said Stuart. “After everything we’ve all been through the past two years, we want to encourage people to talk about their struggles and to use our platform to show people how important it is to reach out for help when they need it most.”

In addition to the three new tracks, Good Ol’ Days gives fans a nostalgic look back at the milestones celebrated these past few years through tracks like “What The Truck,” the fastest Canadian country song to go PLATINUM in the streaming era and 2022 CCMA Award winner for Top Selling Canadian Single which can be found on the album in both the full-band and acoustic formats. It also includes The Reklaws’ third #1, “11 Beers” feat. country superstar Jake Owen. In addition, on the 11-track album fans are able to catch two songs released this past summer that saw both Jenna and Stuart step into their own for the first time on solo tracks, “Cowboy” and “The Downside.”

The past few years have been monumental for The Reklaws. To kick off 2022 the pair landed two 2022 JUNO Awards nominations for Group or Duo of the Year – the only country act nominated in the category for the third straight year – and for Country Album of the Year. They spent this past summer traveling coast to coast for a series of sold out headlining shows and just last month the pair took home two CCMA Awards for Top Selling Canadian Single with their record-setting track “What the Truck” feat. SACHA and landed their second consecutive Group or Duo of the Year Award. As they close out what has been an unmatched year the award-winning duo continues to prove why they are unstoppable when it comes to breaking down boundaries in country music.
