After making waves around the world with the release of his new single KIND OF LOVE last month, MAALA announces the release of his highly anticipated debut album COMPOSURE via Sony Music Entertainment New Zealand on Friday July 29 and will it be available for pre-order on Friday July 8.
MAALA a.k.a. Evan Sinton, sees the sound of his impending album as a natural evolution from his debut EP, which featured singles TOUCH and IN THE AIR and received over three million streams.
“The album feels like a progression – it’ll feel familiar to some extent. I feel like I’m trying new things out.”
COMPOSURE’s 10 tracks were recorded in the autumn at Golden Age Studios in Auckland, with producer Josh Fountain (Leisure). It features writing collaborations with US songwriter MoZella and New Zealand’s own Leroy Clampitt.
The new music has piqued the interested of fans around the globe, including long-time supporter Zane Lowe, who hosted the worldwide radio premiere of KIND OF LOVE on Apple’s Beats 1, noting “a great voice, a brilliantly produced pop record.”
HILLYDILLY was hot on its tail, describing the track with “…big hooks and expansive, thumping, energetic production… It’s got wider appeal that anything he’s released thus far.”
MAALA’s super sultry music video for the first single KIND OF LOVE is directed by Jordan Arts and premiered on MUSIC FEEDS.
After recent shows in Leeds, London, New York and LA, MAALA is excited to showcase new tracks to NZ audiences as the opening act for Flume’s NZ shows.
