Tedy Releases New EP “Manic Party”: Streaming
Haitian-Canadian R&B singer-songwriter Ted Andreville, aka Tedy released his sophomore EP “Manic Party” along with a new music video for “Enemies” on November 25, 2022.
The EP comprises 6-track, produced by Big Taste and Dallas K.
“This album very much came out of the pandemic and spending time focusing on me and my own journey” Tedy said of the EP. “I wanted people to get to know me, the real me, and come along for the ride.”
He continued, “I was so lucky to work with incredible producers—Big Taste (Justin Bieber, Dua Lipa) and Dallas K (Lauv, Tiesto, Fifth Harmony)—on my sophomore EP, Manic Party. Very much borne out of the pandemic, this album is a snapshot of a transitional period, as I grew into the role of creator and artist more fully. This is an outpouring of my personal growth, showcasing how I learned to put myself first and be true to my identity.”
- He added, “I started out as the "Reaction King" on YouTube, amassing a huge following for my videos. As time went on, I realized that there was something else I needed to explore in my life. I wanted to move forward – no matter the cost – and follow my dream of writing songs.”
The accompanying video was directed by David J Redman.
Tedy explained of some tracks for the EP.
“How do we grow personally, individually, and shed the things that no longer serve us so we can do the hard, scary things that really matter? 'Enemies' is my favourite ballad on the EP, and it explores this theme.
I was thinking about the way that relationships can appear perfect and present as something idealized, when the reality is that we're all broken and fractured. That pressure keeps people stuck in bad relationships and bad situations because they're afraid of being alone and looking less than perfect. And that’s really what this song is about: having the courage to choose what's healthy and focus on your own happiness, despite how vulnerable you can feel.”
“Way It Is”
“I wanted to write a song reminding people that nothing is forever and you can and will get through it. It's better to appreciate everything in the moment and be grateful for what was had than to hold onto things with regret.”
“I Wanted My Heart to Break”
“I was so afraid of writing ballads my whole life; I was always worried I wouldn't be good enough. This song was inspired by a pretty dark time in my life and the process of coming out of it, learning to accept myself for who I am, stand on my own two feet, and not be afraid of what others thought. I Wanted My Heart to Break” means so much to me. This song helped me get over my fear, put myself out there, and just express myself completely. When people hear this song, I want them to feel empowered, free, and ready to go for whatever they want regardless of the outcome.”
