The track “Ooh It’s Kinda Crazy,” the second U.S. single from their No One Does It Better, will be shipped to American radio stations on January 21.
SoulDecision — whose last hit, “Faded,” peaked at #4 on MTV’s “Total Request Live” late last year — will debut the video for the new single on “TRL” this Friday. The video was shot last June in Toronto by producer Stephen Scott, who also directed “Faded.”
“Ooh It’s Kinda Crazy” was first recorded and released independently in Canada in 1998 when the band was still known as Indecision. The track was re-recorded and re-released as the group’s third single to the Canadian market; they’ve now released a fourth in that country.
The group — singers Trevor Guthrie, Ken Lewko and Dave Bowman — hails from Vancouver but is now based in Toronto. They have toured across Canada twice and opened shows in the States for Christina Aguilera, ’NSYNC and Destiny’s Child. They also performed at the Orange Bowl in Miami in early January.
The band is scheduled to kick off a number of headlining dates in Canada, starting February 7 in Vancouver, and will perform and present at that country’s Juno Awards on March 4.
“Because our album came out so much earlier in Canada than in the States,” Guthrie said, “it was looking like the Canadians were going to have a long wait, but we’ve recorded a couple of songs for the U.K., [and] it looks like we’re going to release [them] back home.”
Future plans also tentatively include a tour of Australia and Asia later this year, and hopefully some shows in Europe.
Their American fans can catch them on forthcoming episodes of MTV’s “Say What Karaoke” and “Snowed In,” and, according to Guthrie, the band is currently negotiating with “a big act” for another U.S. tour.
