After what seems like FOREVER, Alessia Cara is back with new music! She just released the first single from her next album, "Growing Pains," and talked to me about the song and the pain going into writing all of this new music.
Growing Pains is only the beginning of a story of struggle that she was "masking" from the world for a while. Even when her life was seemingly at its highest point, she was struggling and didn't know why or how to convey it. She was able to find her outlet in her new songs.
I asked Alessia if she'll get emotional when singing the new songs, and "absolutely" was her answer. It's safe to say we'll be cutting right into her heart and mind when it's released in September.
We also talked about the pressures of living up to the music everyone has already loved from her and how she stays true to herself. LISTEN BELOW:
