27.10.2017 - Samana Rising is proud to announce the digital release of our first single Time to Wake Up.

Distrokid will release pop/rock band Samana Rising's first single Time to Wake Up on October 27th, 2017.                                    The single, long awaited by fans who have followed Samana Rising's live shows around the area of Stavanger, is best described as a pop/rock song with elements of funk. The lyrics and theme of the song are about entitlement, accountability and taking responsibility for yourself, your circumstances, actions and resulting consequences. 

Time to Wake Up was recorded at the bands own rehearsal studio, Farm Funk Studios and was produced by Jon Martin Haarr with additional instrumentation and production at Norsk Lydstudio in Drammen by Peter Michelsen of Donkeyboy fame. Peter also contributes with playing B3 organ & additional rhythm guitar on the track. 

Time to Wake Up will be available for digital streaming worldwide and on all the major streaming services like Spotify, Tidal & Apple Music. The song will also be available for purchase at iTunes & Amazon Music.
