Alessia Cara has announced she will be playing at Camden’s barfly on 8th September. The show sold out in only 24 hours showing just how popular the Canadian singer is on this side of the pond. Her latest single, Here will be released on 4th September.
The 18 year old singer songwriter has already had an impact in the US and UK charts with her ironic party anthem Here which was premiered by The Fader and took the top spot on the Billboard + Twitter Emerging Artists chart.
About the song Alessia confessed that ‘Here is a rue story, It’s a party song, but really it’s the complete opposite of a party song. It’s absolutely me; it shouts out the person in the corner of the party, looking around uncomfortably. I feel like this song narrates what the wallflower is thinking.’
The young Canadian is receiving support from Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, Annie Mac, Clara Amfo, Mista Jam, Toddla T and Benji B as well as Trevor Nelson from 1xtra. Not to mention the fact that Taylor Swift has come forward as a fan and critics already drawing comparisons with compatriot Lorde.
Alessia Cara will play Barfly on 9th September 2015 and her single, Here is set for release on 9th September through Virgin EMI.
