After a period of chart-topping collaborations, Canadian electro-pop trio Dragonette have made a valiant return with their fourth studio album Royal Blues to be released worldwide on November 11. Perfectly timed to keep listeners warm while the winter months creep in, the 13-song collection is an irresistibly hook-laden, dancefloor-ready celebration of wisdom that only comes from life experience.
Sonically strapped with a joyous energy, the record is tinged with melancholy undertones. “Sweet Poison” is a deeply personal album cut about love that you can’t hold onto nor let go of. The purposeful simplicity of the video artistically elevates the emotion of the lyrics. The “Sweet Poison” video premiered with Entertainment Weekly today and is available to post/share HERE. Broadcast premiere with Much.
To celebrate the release, the band will embark on a 22-date North American tour making stops in Boston, LA, Chicago, Portland, Toronto and more. Be sure to catch the powerhouse pop trio live in a city near you!
