Today Canadian singer songwriter Kiesza stakes her claim on the electro pop throne she ruled back in 2014 with comeback single ‘You’re The Best’.
Produced by NamahFalcon, ‘You’re The Best’, (released via Kiesza’s label Zebra Spirit Tribe), is the first official UK single release from the “larger-than-life” (PAPER) singer-songwriter in years. In the tender, synth driven track, the “ballerina-turned sailor-turned dance-pop upstart” (Billboard) welcomes listeners into a more intimate soundscape than she’s ever explored. While the stripped-back, simple video (directed by Ljuba Castot), sees and dancer put her classical trained dance moves to the test.
Alongside the release, Kiesza will be performing a series of acoustic shows in intimate venues in three UK cities. Kicking off at Manchester Gorilla in Manchester on Saturday 2nd November, Kiesza will then travel to Thekla in Bristol on Monday 4th November before her final show at Bush Hall in London on Tuesday 5th November. Tickets for Kiesza’s 2019 UK Acoustic Tour are available to purchase here.
Kiesza’s UK dates follow hot on the heels of her U.S. and Canada headline tour in the Summer, (which included a show at NYC’s Rockwood Music Hall in time for Pride) and supporting MIKA on his North American Tour in September. They will see Kiesza perform fan favourites in addition to previewing new music from her forthcoming album (due for release in 2020).
Kiesza became an instant star in 2014 when her impassioned vocal tune ‘Hideaway’ (which has notched up over 1 billion + streams to date), and her 1 million + selling debut album, Sound Of A Woman saw her top charts globally. Marquee talents rushed to work with her, and soon we saw the rising Canadian talent’s feature on releases from the likes of Skrillez, Diplo, Duran Duran and Joey Bada$$ (to name but a few). While brands such as Fendi and Maison Birks utilised her iconic image in their promotional campaigns.
A life life-changing car crash and head trauma brought Kiesza hurtling back to earth in 2017 and she has spent the last two years on hiatus recovering. Now, 2019 – marks the rebirth. Kiesza 2.0 is poised and ready to re-take the global stage with her own unique brand of pop music.
