FRESH: ‘Crave’ Kiesza’s Awesome New Album!

Kiesza releases her second album, “Crave”

Toda​y ‘electro-pop maven’ (The Fader), Kiesza releases her second studio album, “Crave” via her own label Zebra Spirit Tribe. Written entirely by Kiesza, “Crave” is a nod to a decade she has always been drawn to: the eighties. Showcasing Kiesza’s signature electronic leaning pop sound, it features production from Peter Wade, phonehome, Bobby Love, Chris Malinchak, Electric, Louis Biancaniello & Mike Biancaniello, and LICK DROP.

Lyrically, “Crave” reveals a fearless and honest portrayal of Kiesza’s personal experiences, including her traumatic and life-changing year in 2017. Following the release of her chart-topping, international hit debut album “Sound Of A Woman”, Kiesza was forced to take a two year after suffering a critical head injury in a car crash. The injury rendered her incapable of writing/recording music, performing live and potentially ever walking again. She was subsequently not only housebound (essentially self-isolating), but also bedbound for several months, with no idea of when she might recover. Eventually Kiesza emerged, fully recovered, stronger than ever, and bursting with ideas for a new collection of songs.

“There is so much I could and want to tell you about what it took to get to this album and why it sounds the way it does. I will tell you everything in time, but for now just know that this album is intended to lift you up. It’s there to give you a second wind and boost your spirit. I wanted it to be positive, for you and for me, as I know a lot of us need that right now. I’ve been on that same rollercoaster that you almost certainly have for the past five years; that one they call life. And there is still so much to share. It’s best to think of this album as that beautiful sunlit tip of the iceberg, while I slowly begin to take you beneath the surface. I’m beyond excited to shared this new body of work with you and I hope it adds some positive energy to your day as you listen through music. And thank you to my whole tribe, who are this reason this music is coming out. I love you” Kiesza says.

Alongside the release of “Crave”, Kiesza has shared the music video for her recently released single from the album, “Love Me With Your Lie”. Directed, edited and styled by 10th Dimension studios, a creative collective based in Hollywood, the accompanying music video for “Love Me With Your Lie” presents Kiesza in a way she has never been seen before.

Singer-songwriter Kiesza was raised in Calgary, Canada. As a former member of the Royal Canadian Navy, a ballet dancer, and beauty queen, she always danced to the beat of her own drum. After exploding onto the music scene in 2014 with “Hideaway” and her one million + selling, chart-topping “Sound of A Woman” debut album, Kiesza was recruited to write songs for the likes of Rihanna and Jennifer Hudson, and collaborate with Duran Duran, Skrillex, Pitbull, Diplo and more.

Now, returning to music after her post accident hiatus, Kiesza is emerging as an artist reborn. Armed with a brilliant collection of new songs and a fresh perspective on the future, she is releasing her music independently through her own label, Zebra Spirit Tribe. The new decade marks a promising new beginning for one of the last decade’s biggest breakouts, and this time, she’s doing it her way.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
