Canadian alt pop-inspired singer-songwriter-composer Adaline, whose moody pop compositions have been featured in over 60 television shows and films, has released the debut single “Entertainer” from her anticipated third studio album Aquatic – due out June 2 via Cadence Music Group.
Aquatic follows Adaline’s critically-acclaimed and Western Canadian Music Award nominated sophomore album Modern Romance. Produced predominately by Tino Zolfo, the aptly titled Aquatic, features 10 brand new hook-infused percussive torch-pop songs.
Conceptualized on the ocean, it lyrically serves as a metaphoric baptism – one of starting over. Aquatic is a journey through the darker side of love. It speaks to the unending search for real connections in a world where such a notion is riddled with cruel falsehoods and misplaced expectations. The albums lead single “Entertainer” perfectly captures this sentiment.
“I don’t need another person to merely entertain me romantically. I’m looking for a little bravery,” remarks Adaline on the message behind “Entertainer”. “I find it a common sentiment in my generation: we’re looking for something just a little more profound.”
Aquatic Track Listing:
- How Could We Know
- Entertainer – LISTEN
- Younger Days
- Calling It Love
- Break Me Apart
Since her debut release in 2008, Adaline has been featured in award-winning television shows and films including Grey’s Anatomy, 90210, Rookie Blue, Lost Girl, Flashpoint, Degrassi, Heartland, Bomb Girls, Killjoys, The Samaritan and more.
She worked with Brendan Canning of Broken Social Scene on the score for the Bret Easton Ellis written film, The Canyons, scored the NBC Thriller, Fear of Mutilation and was selected to do a 10-month composer residency at Norman Jewison’s Canadian Film Centre where she collaborated with Canada’s up and coming film talent.
Adaline is also the voice behind the Cineplex successful short film “Lily and The Snowman” which features her cover of “Follow You Follow Me” by Genesis. The film went viral online garnering over 55 million views and was seen by 40 million people in the theatre over the holidays.
