Competition ends September 25, 2015

Canadian singer-songwriter Mo Kenney is excited to announce the release of her new album In My Dreams in the UK on September 4th 2015, followed by a UK Tour.

In My Dreams is a stunningly accomplished and exciting follow-up to Mo Kenney’s 2012 much-decorated and universally acclaimed self-titled debut; and has already achieved award-winning success in Canada, swiftly securing itself an ECMA for Pop Recording of the Year.

The new album, which is slightly rockier than the first record, takes the listener on a memorable emotional rollercoaster, each song sung with passion and attitude.

The first single taken from the album, Telephones, was released earlier this year.

Canadian folkie Mo Kenney is doing things a little differently, and it’s paying off. Her self-titled debut album drew praise and attention for its combination of folk and pop, and her new record ‘In My Dreams’ goes one further by producing a slightly rockier sound. She has won multiple high-profile awards (including Canadian Folk Music Awards, Nova Scotia Music Awards, East Coast Music Awards, the list goes on) and has taken her music all the way across the world, visiting the UK, Germany, Ireland and Australia. Now, she is planning to return to European shores this September for a string of shows (available on her website), in support of the new record.

The lead single from ‘In My Dreams’ is ‘Telephones’, an intoxicating folk rock number with bluntly honest lyrics and a knack for a catchy chorus, set to something of a 60s vibe. “If I had another lover could I keep you on the side?” Mo asks her partner, lamenting how their relationship has gone stale since she’s only home on the weekends, but not wishing it to end entirely. Rather matter-of-fact and effortlessly confident, the accompanying video only builds upon the no-bullshit approach taken. Mo is pictured singing and playing guitar directly to the camera in a number of settings, sometimes on the phone and interacting with various mannequinns. There’s a quirky, retro feel to it that sets her apart.
