Six-time Juno Award winner Serena Ryder has released her new single “Candy” today. The new song is the lead single off Serena Ryder’s upcoming album: The Art of Falling Apart. The 10-track project chronicles Ryder’s years of struggle with mental health, and her journey from mental illness to wellness. Ryder debuted the track as part of the official Canada Day virtual celebrations, of which she also played co-host. A video for “Candy” featuring Tanya Howard, one of the star dancers of the National Ballet of Canada will follow in the coming weeks.
Of the new single, Ryder says “This song is about being vulnerable and the many layers to being a human on the path to wellness. Candy is an intro to let everyone know that I’m about to show my softer, more vulnerable side with this new record”
The Art of Falling Apart was written and recorded over just ten days. The track listing allows the listener to follow Ryder’s creative process in a truly linear sense. Each song was recorded the day it was written, featuring powerfully raw, unprocessed vocals. “Candy” is the first song on the album, through which Ryder begins to open up, unravelling her upbeat, sunny edges to show a softer, more vulnerable side.
The release of “Candy” also marks the first release by ArtHaus Music under its new distribution agreement with Warner Music Canada. Of the new partnership, President of Warner Music Canada says “We are thrilled to welcome ArtHaus Music to the Warner Music Canada team. I’ve long been an admirer of both Serena Ryder and am thrilled to be working with my longtime friend Sandy Pandya.” Founder of ArtHaus Music Sandy Pandya adds “Steve Kane is a genuine music-man, and we are beyond thrilled to work with him and the team at Warner Music Canada in building and fostering the Arthaus Community.”
