EMI are gearing up for next Friday’s UK release of In The Meantime, the third studio album from Canadian singer-songwriter Alessia Cara. Alessia announced the album at the beginning of the month via an Instagram post revealing the eye-catching album artwork.
Fans have already been treated to two of the album’s singles, Sweet Dream and Shapeshifter, with the video for the former making its worldwide broadcast premiere on MTV Live, MTVU and across MTV’s global network of channels, as well as on the Viacom Times Square billboard.
Alessia recently sat down with NME for a wide-ranging interview where she discussed mental health and how she became overwhelmed after writing in the same room that the late Amy Winehouse had once written in. She also talked about being featured on The Metallica Blacklist with her reimagined version of Enter Sandman, telling the publication, “We tried to make it contemporary, but at the same time maintain the essence of the song. Hopefully, we did it justice. They [Metallica] gave us their stamp of approval, and that’s really what matters to me.”
