Pop Icon: Alessia Cara reveals two new singles ‘Sweet Dream‘ and ‘Shapeshifter‘ via Def Jam Recordings
Alessia shares: “The theme of duality is recurring on this next album, so it made sense to release two songs to introduce both ends of the thread. The first side being ‘Sweet Dream’ which represents the hardship & helplessness surrounding my last couple of years. It’s about insomnia and the hoops my brain jumps through at night while I’m supposed to be asleep. Never fun! Then on the flip side, there’s ‘Shapeshifter’ which is witty and sophisticated in a way that I feel represents the more mature and light-hearted parts of the album. I had to go through lots of pain to regain my footing and this song feels unwavering, despite it not being about the happiest of things.”
The 2 new releases ‘Sweet Dream‘ and ‘Shapeshifter‘ are featured on her forthcoming third album.
Her previously announced version of Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” is set for their upcoming deluxe ‘Black Album’ box set, and she will join Metallica, Billie Eilish, Lorde, The Weeknd, BTS and many more for the September 25th Global Citizen concert.
