Today, Charlotte Day Wilson shares the title, art, and release date of her second EP, Stone Woman. The much-anticipated follow-up from the Toronto-based vocalist, producer, and multi-instrumentalist arrives February 23, containing five new tracks as well as previously released single “Doubt”.

Along with news of the EP, Charlotte announced a very select run of eleven live performances in support of Stone Woman, beginning March 20 in Vancouver and concluding in London on April 25. All tickets go on sale January 19. Full dates and ticket links can be found below.

“Doubt”, which arrived in November, was premiered by Zane Lowe and described by The Fader as a “gorgeous track that instantly finds a camaraderie with the listener in its warm and honest handling of regret.

“Doubt” followed Charlotte's debut EP CDW, with its standout singles "Work" and "Find You" and a stream of accolades from Pitchfork, The Fader, Beats1, NPR, Pigeons & Planes, and music fans around the world.

Stone Woman represents Charlotte’s first project in the 18 months since the CDW release and she once again plays the roles of vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, and producer, showcasing her vision of intimate, timeless music with clarity.

The recording chronicles the growth and uncertainty of that period, proof of Charlotte's power and poise, and the certainty of her emergence as an essential voice in 2018 and beyond.

PRAISE FOR CHARLOTTE DAY WILSON

"Quiet storm R&B and dark pop for doomed lovers... Her voice doesn't just sound great on the ear; it carries a huge emotional weight." - Pitchfork

"Hypnotic... Wilson directly channels soul music of decades past but also inhabits that same minimalist expanse occupied by so many of her contemporaries." - NPR

"Her soulful timbre and sparse, self-produced melodies craft a celestial re-imagination of the blues." - The Fader

Rich Aucoin has never been one to do things normally. You know the stories by now: How he toured across Canada on a bike - confirming the next night’s show from the green room of the venue he was currently sound-checking in. On that bike tour, he ran a half-marathon in every city, raised money, donated every cent to Leukemia research. On the next tour, he ran half marathons for Heart And Stroke while at the same time recording 2011’s We’re All Dying To Live, featuring over 500 players. And his first EP, Personal Publication, syncs up perfectly with “How The Grinch Stole Christmas” and 2014’s Ephemeral with “The Little Prince”. How every show features a custom video opening and a party under a parachute and at the end of that show, he puts his phone number up and you texted him.

Well, if you’ve received a text from Rich today, or saw a poster around town, or on social media, asking Rich to text you, then you’ve likely already heard the news that there’s a new EP coming out on March 16, and you’ve probably already heard the new track, “Release”. He’s currently hunkered down in a call centre today sending the new track to everyone who has texted him in the last 6 years - totaling almost 16,000 friends and strangers - and to every new fan texting him today. If you missed the poster, it says:

Today’s reveal of “Release” is also accompanied by a video directed by Dave Hung, who worked on Kanye West's “Famous” video, and was shot on four separate occasions off the coast of Nova Scotia. The video is a departure from Aucoin's homage pieces in “Want to Believe”, “Brian Wilson is A.L.i.V.E” and “IT” - this time favouring a long meditative, photographic shot. While filming, Aucoin lay in the water, repeating the mantra of there being no shark attacks in Nova Scotia while the rest of the crew flew drones safely from shore.

WATCH AND SHARE “RELEASE”

It shouldn’t surprise you to learn that when Aucoin’s computer was stolen on a surf trip in Costa Rica in 2016, along with it went most of the recordings for the new EP. Gone. All but one completely finished new song which he had sent to his manager. That song was to be the last song of the new EP. And that record? He didn’t just start over - he made his best work ever: spanning through electro-jungle variations to joyous and catchy orchestral pop.

That song he managed to save? It’s the one you’re hopefully hearing now. “Release” is a sprawling instrumental which features the drumming of Broken Social Scene's Justin Peroff. The heavy electro track is built upon vocal samples and pads sung and manipulated by Aucoin which weave in and out of Peroff's hard-panned grooves and modulating synths.

Recorded by Thomas D'arcy at Taurus Studios and Milkshake Studios with Peter

Chapman, the track is a stark contrast to the short high-tempo songs from Aucoin's previous release, Ephemeral. The track hints toward a rebirth for Aucoin and stimulates a need to experience his high energy live shows which, coincidentally, begin in Canada on February 20. Full tour dates can be found below with more dates being announced shortly.

Today, Liza Anne has shared another track from her upcoming album Fine But Dying, an earworm with bite called “Small Talks”. On the track, the Nashville-by-way-of-Georgia singer unleashes danceable disdain for the frustrating formalities of southern hospitality. Her sweetly tart voice cuts through a propulsive beat as she sings with raucous, relatable honesty:

The older I get the harder it gets
Maybe I’m fine, maybe I’m dying
I’m just tired, tired of trying

 “Small Talks” is the third song from Fine But Dying, out March 9 via Arts & Crafts, which Liza calls “my woman at her wildest self album.” She confronts her inner anxieties and history of mental illness as she battles the vertiginous nature of early adulthood in a fearless display of both strength and vulnerability. Fine But Dying was recorded at La Frette studios in Paris (Feist, Nick Cave) and produced by Liza Odachowski and Zachary Dyke.

Fine But Dying has earned early praise from Stereogum, who called her second single, “Closest To Me”, “gorgeous and subtly devastating” and NPR Music who called Liza’s music "bold in both sound and subject." Liza has also made fans of Billboard, Zane Lowe, and Nylon, who dubbed Liza an artist with the "keen ability to turn even the smallest of feelings into a sweeping song.”

Supporting the release of Fine But Dying, Liza will tour extensively across North America, kicking off with a stop at SXSW. Full tour dates below.
