Alessia Cara Announces New ‘This Summer’ EP & First Single ‘Ready’
It’s been just eight months since the release of Alessia Cara‘s deeply personal sophomore album, The Pains of Growing. Now, in the midst of a continent-wide tour with superstar Shawn Mendes, the songstress is delivering more music to fans.
“caught the writing bug out of the blue and made an EP,” the 23-year-old Grammy winner wrote in a post on Twitter on Thursday (July 18). “it’s called This Summer. I’ll be releasing a new track every couple of weeks until it’s release.”
The EP’s lead track, “Ready,” is out July 22. The accompanying photo shows two film pictures, one of a group of pink flowers in front of palm trees, and the other a corner of a building. To coincide with the pink theme, Cara changed her usual yellow icon to a rose-tinted one.
See the announcement below.
