Alessia Cara Returns With Tow New Songs “Sweet Dream” & “Shapeshifter”
- Canadian singer-songwriter Alessia Cara is back. She released two new song “Sweet Dream” and “Shapeshifter” since the 2020 film “The Willoughbys” soundtrack “I Choose”.
“Sweet Dream” received its first play during BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Annie Mac on July 15, 2021.
Two songs were written by Alessia Cara. “Sweet Dream” was produced by Jon Levine. “Shapeshifter” was produced by Salaam Remi.
The music video for “Sweet Dream” was directed by Tusk .
“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,” explained Alessia Cara. “The first side being 'Sweet Dream' which represents the hardship and helplessness surrounding my last couple of years. It's about insomnia and the hoops my brain jumps through at night while I'm supposed to be asleep. Never fun!”
She continued, “Then on the flip side, there's 'Shapeshifter' which is witty and sophisticated in a way that I feel represents the more mature and light-hearted parts of the album. I had to go through lots of pain to regain my footing and this song feels unwavering, despite it not being about the happiest of things. (got my feelings hurt whatever).”
She added, “Sweet Dream is delirious, vulnerable, and whimsical. Shapeshifter is dramatic, sharp, and unabashed. 2 sides to 1 coin. The coin is this era, and me.”
