Alessia Cara is back with two new songs – listen to ‘Sweet Dream’ and ‘Shapeshifter’.
The new tracks preview the singer’s long-awaited third album, which will follow 2018’s “The Pains of Growing”.
“The theme of duality is a recurring one on this next album, so it made sense to release two songs to introduce both ends of the thread,” Cara said in a statement regarding the pairing of the single and her upcoming album.
“The first side is the ‘Sweet Dream’ which represents the hardship and helplessness I’ve had around my last few years. It’s about insomnia and my mind bouncing around at night until I’m asleep. Fun never!”

Cara continued: “On the other hand, there’s ‘Shapeshifter’ that’s witty and sophisticated in a way that I think represents the more mature and light-hearted part of the album. So much for me to regain my feet again.” Had to go through the pain and this song feels unbreakable, even if it’s not the happiest thing.”
