Alessia Cara Releases New Songs

Grammy winner Alessia Cara is back with her first solo music of the year, dropping two singles: “Sweet Dream” and “Shapeshifter.” The songs mark a new era for the Brampton-born singer-songwriter, as they will be part of her upcoming third album.

When asked about the songs, Alessia said “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.”

“Sweet Dream” is candied pop, and sounds like a natural progression of Cara’s other songs, such as “Trust My Lonely.” Despite its downcast themes, the upbeat, addictive melodies are a playful and fun side of Cara that listeners don’t always get to hear.
