PEI songwriter-multi-instrumentalist and former Hey Rosetta! member KINLEY shares a new song, “Run With You.” The catchy pop rock inspired track premiered at The Bluegrass Situation. Produced by Colin Buchanan with Greg Alsop (Tokyo Police Club) on drums, “Run With You” will appear on KINLEY’s self-titled sophomore studio album due out February 21, 2020. The track, which features backup vocals from Liam Corcoran (Two Hours Traffic), can now be streamed on all DSPs. A lyric video by Aidan Searle can be viewed below:
“Run With You is a letter to a cool Canadian rock singer I have always admired,” shares KINLEY. “No matter what I am feeling the sound of her voice can make me drop everything and dance. In this song I wanted to thank her for the amazing music and the way it makes me feel. It is about how I want to hang out with her and not feel or care about anyone else’s judgement.”
Other tracks on KINLEY’s self-titled sophomore LP include “Lightworkers,” as well as the empowering song “Washington” which took home the very first Women’s Freedom Song Contest award. The album is produced by Colin Buchanan (Paper Lions) at The Hill Sound Studio in Charlottetown.
KINLEY follows the songwriter’s 2016 debut studio album Letters Never Sent. The LP, which garnered three Music PEI Awards and two East Coast Music Awards, featured the powerful lead single “Microphone.” The video for “Microphone” went on to inspire a new sexual health curriculum in PEI; with focus placed on consent, gender norms, bystander intervention and sexual assault for all grade 9 Health classes.
