Globally-acclaimed singer-songwriter Charlotte Cardin breaking down boundaries with new single ‘Looping’ via Atlantic Records
The song arrives alongside news of Cardin’s 99 Nights international headline tour, kicking off August 31st in Trois-Rivières, QC before hitting the US in October with stops at New York’s Irving Plaza on October 27th and Los Angeles’ El Rey Theatre on November 7th. Tickets go on sale starting Friday, May 12 at 10am local time.
Co-written/produced with Mr Hudson, Felix Joseph & Jason Brando and sampling “The Way We Were” by Barbara Streisand, “Looping” marks the second new release from Cardin following last month’s infectious single “Confetti.” Deemed “an anthem for wallflowers” by Genius and amongst the “best new pop music” by Uproxx, the song continues to captive listeners via a newly released English-French version last week. Both songs arrive amidst a mysterious 99 night countdown teased by Cardin on social media, due to complete on June 9th.
Charlotte says: “I thought I was writing about Mr Hudson’s dog who sees life in black and white. Jay was under the impression we were writing about my obsessive thought patterns. Felix was randomly sampling Barbara Streisand’s ‘The Way We Were“. And somehow all of this made sense. Or did it? Fuck, I’m looping again.”
Cardin released her debut full-length album Phoenix in 2021 to widespread acclaim (and platinum certification in Canada) including a sweep of 2022 Juno Awards that included wins for Artist, Album, Pop Album and Single of the Year and a 2022 Polaris Music Prize nomination. Praised by HYPEBAEfor its “rippling melodies” and “stunningly raw vocals,” the albumheld the #1 spot in Canada for two weeks and boosted Cardin to over 313 million combined global streams to date. The album was celebrated with an elaborate and immersive ticketed livestream performance dubbed “The Phoenix Experience,” in addition to an expanded deluxe edition. The stunning body of work features stand-out singles “Meaningless” and “Sex To Me,” the latter of which was featured last month on the second season of Netflix’s Sex/Life.
Following the success of her Big Boy EP across Canada, Cardin made waves worldwide with her major label and US debut Main Girl EPin 2017. Featuring the standout title track and breakthrough “Dirty Dirty,” Main Girl quickly gained critical acclaim from the likes of The FADER, Harper’s BAZAAR,Interview, NYLON, PAPER, W Magazine & more. The release simultaneously sparked a whirlwind two-year journey around the globe that saw Cardin support the likes of Nick Murphy and BØRNS, in addition to selling out headline shows on multiple continents (including 29 shows on her 2022 North American Phoenix Tour) and gracing the stages of festivals such as Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza,Austin City Limits, Osheaga & Festival d’Été de Québec.
