We close this year with the arrival of Malko’s very first solo project, Spleen Amore. A three-pack EP that is sure to entice you into wanting more.

Spleen Amore presents three distinct pieces related to the theme of love. ‘Madonna’ shares a story of the melancholy of a one-sided love, ‘On Me’ speaks of the game of seduction, and then ‘Medicine’ illustrates the intoxicating passion of the earlier moments in a relationship.”

Charlotte Cardin thrills fans by releasing bonus tracks to her debut album Phoenix in her deluxe edition. With this version comes a new line of merch, plus a vinyl with a very special diary-like booklet.

“We wrote about fifty demos for the initial Phoenix album. Out of the batch, we picked thirteen to tell the story we wanted to tell with this first record. As much as we loved the other tracks, we couldn’t fit all of them on there. But ever since we released the album, the response has been so positive that I wanted to give back to my ever so supportive fans by extending the Phoenix era a little longer. I went back to those first demos that I loved and chose to work on the ones that were particularly special to me for this release. I hope they will be special to you as well.”

The “Phoenix Deluxe” album is available now.

World-renowned singer-songwriter Charlotte Cardin has teamed up with viral artist Lubalin for “Phoenix (Reprise),” a reinvented duet version of the track from her critically acclaimed debut album. It’s no coincidence that the two artists reunited for this single as Lubalin co-wrote the original song.

“Phoenix (Reprise) is probably my favorite version of this song that I worked with Charlotte on both the original and the cover. To me, it really has its own story that starts with the version that’s on Charlotte’s album. Before I became “TikTok famous” in late 2019, I met with Jason Brando at Cult Nation to play him some of my demos, including an early demo of Phoenix. At the time, I only had the chorus (“you told me, you loved me…”) and a basic beat with piano, 808s and drums. There were also the “oohs” that you hear in the quieter part before the last chorus. Jason asked me if he could play it for Charlotte. When I gave him the okay, I never thought anything would come out of it. A few weeks later, Charlotte recorded the song. The song was then chosen for the album. Not only that, but the album will be named after the song and will be the first track on the album. I’m still absolutely amazed at how it turned out,” says Lubalin.

The arrival of spring marks the arrival in force of the young Montreal collective PLAYDAYS, which presents its first EP, including its two previously released singles, “Vidé” and “Femme de luxe”, then its new song “American Life”.

The collective also reveals its very first music video, which accompanies this last piece. This is the culmination of a project that began over a year and a half ago, and has been refined with the arrival of containment last March, until today. The “American Life” exhibited by the collective is one of luxury, money, appearances, excessive validation research, and polarizing biases fueled by disinformation and algorithms. The group portrays a false utopia where “the victims of the model are no one other than those who dream of it”. PLAYDAYS points out, however, that the goal of the EP is not necessarily criticism of this life, but rather instigating awareness in order to dissociate oneself from its toxic aspects.
