Now This Is More Like It: Alessia Cara Premieres Formidable New Song “Not Today”
Alessia Cara shared today a new song from her upcoming second studio album “The Pains of Growing” (out November 30th) by exclusively premiering it on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show. She then quickly uploaded the song on digital platforms and uploaded an official lyric video on her YouTube channel. The new song premiered today is track number 2 on the album: “Not Today” – produced by Jon Levine.
I’ll say this fast: “Not Today” is my favorite song from “The Pains of Growing” era to date. It’s, in my opinion, superior to the two official singles Alessia has released. If I were her, I would upgrade “Not Today” from countdown single to official single ASAP. Honestly, I was very worried until today for this era because none of the songs I had heard up until point sounded as good as any of the songs from Alessia's previous album - so THANK GOD for "Not Today". The lyrics, the instrumentation, the carefree vocals in this one… everything works out to perfection here. I’m obsessed and I can’t stop replaying.
See what Alessia Cara had to say with respect to the inspiration behind this song in her Beats 1 interview this afternoon:
Alessia falando sobre "Not Today": foi uma das últimas canções escritas para o álbum após o fim de um relacionamento e é sobre a fase que precede a superação. "Lembrar que as coisas melhoram, mas é ok dizer 'hoje não, eu preciso ficar na cama, triste, e sentir pena de mim mesma". pic.twitter.com/wXXSVmVimK— Alessia Cara Brasil (@alessiacarabr) 13 de noviembre de 2018
