Def Jam Recordings and Grammy Awards-winning artist, Alessia Cara, released her very amazing sophomore album, The Pains of Growing, not even a full eighth months ago. But that isn’t stopping the very talented singer and songwriter from already getting set to release its followup, This Summer. A new EP that is set for a September 6th release date.
Promising to release a new record every couple of weeks leading up to the EP’s release, today she kicks off the campaign for the project with the very upbeat Jon Levine-produced lead single, Ready. A very guitar and drums driven record where over the island like upbeat backdrop, Cara sings about being ready for a Summer love, but she also isn’t going to wait for it, if they don’t show it.
The record has that upbeat island like, feel-good Summer vibe that makes you feel good and want to dance and move around to have a feel-good time. Cara’s very beautifully angelic vocals and beautifully inspirational lyrics that will instantly make you feel good good, if you really need it and are having a bad day, just the perfect icing on the cake.
The catchy lyrics from Cara of the sure to be newest hit record from the singer, sure to have you singing along throughout the rest of the Summer and beyond. Sure to be a candidate for the Song of the Summer too, it makes you wonder with so many other hit and amazing songs already under her belt. Is there a record, Cara ever makes that isn’t so amazing and perfect?
With how great the drums and guitar from Jon Levine and Midi Jones sounds on the production to make it that much better too. I can hardly wait to hear how great it sounds live, as it’s the perfect type of record to be elevated and made that much greater during a live performance too. Which most of us wouldn’t have to wait long for, as Alessia also earlier today announced she will be going on a headlining U.S. tour during the Fall with the Chicago area stop at Rosemont here on October 30th. With all of the rest of the dates on the flyer below too.
