September 22, 2023 – Today, Canadian singer-songwriter laye releases her sophomore project losers via Sony Music Entertainment Canada. Listen HERE.
With over 24M global audio streams, laye is an artist on the rise, and this body of work pulls together a confident collection of guitar-driven alt-pop songs, following a steady stream of releases over the past many months. Working with a slew of prominent co-writers and producers, including Cici Ward (GAYLE, Cheat Codes, Huddy), Oscar Neidhardt (Thirty Seconds to Mars, Emeline, Conan Gray), and Stevie Aiello (Thirty Seconds to Mars, Starset), losers is the work of an artist laying bare the complicated emotions of loss. Says laye, “losers was formed when I found myself at a standstill. The majority of the EP was written at a time when I was losing: losing at love, losing at life, and losing myself.”
The EP is an eight-song collection, including previously released tracks “blue,” “touching myself,” “Unhappier,” and “you’re my achilles heel” along with new tracks “backseat driver,” “I saw god,” “my last cigarette,” and “sunday scaries.” Taken together, the EP takes listeners on an authentic journey. “To me,” says laye, “losers feels like the early-2000s Tumblr era. These are songs that would have made me lock myself in my room to cry, dance, and maybe sneak a cigarette. They’re songs to lose yourself in.”
