Alessia Cara is back with two new singles, ‘Sweet Dream’ and ‘Shapeshifter’.

The one-two release is from her upcoming, as-yet-unannounced third album, which follows on from 2015 debut ‘Know-It-All’, and 2018’s ‘The Pains of Growing’.

“The theme of duality is recurring on this next album, so it made sense to release two songs to introduce both ends of the thread,” she says. “The first side being ‘Sweet Dream’ which represents the hardship & helplessness surrounding my last couple of years. It’s about insomnia and the hoops my brain jumps through at night while I’m supposed to be asleep. Never fun! Then on the flip side, there’s ‘Shapeshifter’ which is witty and sophisticated in a way that I feel represents the more mature and light-hearted parts of the album. I had to go through lots of pain to regain my footing and this song feels unwavering, despite it not being about the happiest of things.”
