Alessia Cara has some big news.
Only eight months after the release of her sophomore album Growing Pains the Canadian singer has released the first single from her forthcoming EP This Summer.
“Ready” is an upbeat, bouncy song for the summer with a reggae groove.
“Why do I care so much about you, boy? You know I do/ I think a million thoughts, but only half get through to you,” she sings.
Cara is currently on tour with Shawn Mendes which might have spurred the EP.
“Caught the writing bug out of the blue and made an EP,” Cara, 23, announced last week on Twitter. “It’s called This Summer. I’ll be releasing a new track every couple of weeks until it’s release.”
The EP’s lead track, “Ready”, will be the first to be released on July 22. Cara teased her fans with a picture of the Los Angeles scenery including bougainvillaea, palm trees and a building.
Cara also announced an 18-date tour across the U.S. this fall. The singer will be performing in Toronto on Sept. 6 with Mendes.
