Summer Nights in Montréal feat. Yann Perreau
Jill Barber - Entre Nous - Outside Music Canadian New
May 8, 2020 - Today, singer-songwriter Jill Barber releases "Summer Nights in Montréal" featuring Québec's Yann Perreau. The French version of the new single is from her forthcoming French album, Entre nous, due out on June 19th, 2020 with Outside Music.

"On Summer Nights in Montréal, I savour the memory of a past encounter: a sweet recollection of a steamy evening in Montréal;" shares Jill. "But more than that, it is a love letter to Montréal, to the intoxicating effect it has on me, and the “joie de vivre” that I feel each time I’m there. I loved the idea of this song being a duet, a back and forth “dance” between a woman and a man, so I approached Yann Perreau about singing it with me. He is a coup-de-coeur of mine and I am thrilled to have him as my duet partner on this song."
Chris Labelle - s/t Canadian New

"The Ottawa country singer wrote the tune — an unabashedly sentimental anthem of gratitude for front-line workers — during one of the sleepless nights leading up to the birth of his first child with wife Julie. Their baby boy, Grayson, was born April 27 at the Montfort Hospital as it was dealing with an outbreak of COVID-19."

Bringing a child into a world upended by a pandemic was just the start of the worries that kept him tossing and turning that night. He was also concerned about his mother, Heather, a 63-year-old triple-bypass surgery survivor who works as a cashier in a grocery store, and brother Kyle, who works at the Ottawa Hospital General Campus and can’t hug his kids after a shift.

The night he wrote the song, Labelle said he received a text from his brother that went something like this: ‘Hey Chris, this is real. It’s a big deal. I want to say I love you.’ "

“A lot of them have no clue if you have COVID or not so they’re fighting this thing that’s invisible. It’s very scary,” Labelle says. “I just wanted to cheer them up. Even if you’ve had a long day at the McDonald’s drive-through, the message is: ‘Thank you, guys.’”

Pale White Moon
Mike McKenna Jr. - At the Edge of the World Canadian New

Video Released May 8, 2020
From his album "At the Edge of the World"

"Pale White Moon is based on a true story of a young folk-singer named Taylor Mitchell, who died whilst hiking at a national park in Cape Breton — over ten years ago. McKenna was still living there at the time, whilst he was working at a Christmas tree farm and had heard about it through the grapevine."

Mitchell, a Toronto-based singer-songwriter who was on a solo tour, was hiking on the Skyline Trail when she was attacked by a cougar. "
