Vancouver artist Frazey Ford, has shared “Saul”, the track was originally recorded for her album U kin B the Sun, but never made the cut. Named for her son, “Saul.” The song’s arrival follows the release of the “U kin B the Sun” music video, and Frazey’s return to the stage this fall, with North American tour dates in early 2022.

Ford, began writing the song not long after the birth of Saul – who features as the clouds in the “U kin B the Sun” video – and only completed it recently. Sonically restrained yet richly expressive, “Saul” is an outpouring of the particularly vulnerable and earthy experience of love for a child.

U kin B the Sun was recorded at John Raham’s Afterlife Studios in Vancouver, British Columbia, featuring her Vancouver musicians Darren Parris, Leon Power, Craig McCaul, and Caroline Ballhorn, Erilk Nielsen along with Phil Cook on keys, U kin B the Sun follows Ford’s 2014 release Indian Ocean, an album made with members of legendary Memphis soul band The Hi Rhythm Section.
