Toronto, ON – January 12, 2018 – Only a week away from the release of his upcoming self-titled album, rapper Cadence Weapon shares his new single, High Rise. Serving as the follow up to previous singles, Large, Don’t Talk To Me, and the critically acclaimed, My Crew (Woooo), High Rise is the fourth track from the album, set for release on January 19, 2018 via eOne Music. Get a first listen at CBC Music, and pre-order the album here.
With Montreal producer, Jacques Greene, at the helm, High Rise is a bold look at city life and the condo boom.
“’High Rise’ was inspired by my experience looking for a place to live when I first moved to Toronto. It made me imagine a demonic real estate agent chanting at me to give up the search for a house, to move into a condo,” Cadence says of the inspiration for the track. “I think many people are dealing with rampant gentrification and the erosion of community today so I decided to write a protest song about it.”
Cadence will be sharing the new music on stage this winter, as he has announced new tour dates in Ontario and Quebec, commencing with a spot at Hillside Inside Festival in Guelph, Ontario on February 9, through March, supporting New York trio, Too Many Zooz. See below for a complete list of dates.
The upcoming album features appearances from Deradoorian, Blue Hawaii, Brendan Phillip and Casey MQ and tracks from producers, Kaytranada, Francis Got Heat, Jacques Green and Harrison. The 12-track album is a reintroduction to Cadence Weapon as an artist, through his new music, and he's excited for the world to experience this new beginning.
