Lou Canon will release her third studio album, Audomatic Body, July 10 via Paper Bag Records. Today, she teases listeners in anticipation with her new single/video “Invisible Desire”, debuted on Ghettoblaster Magazine. She reveals, “This song is about pushing higher, going further, moving deeper. And engaging with the world in a sensual way. There is a passage by James Baldwin that encapsulates this sentiment, ‘To be sensual, I think, is to respect and rejoice in the force of life, of life itself, and to be present in all that one does, from the effort of loving to the making of bread.’” Canon’s breathtaking falsetto invites listeners into an ethereal dimension where they can relax and rejoice in their carnal adventures.
Audomatic Body belongs on its very own plane. Kinetic beats pulse within it’s swampy waters, where natural and synthetic vibrations coalesce beneath Canon’s delicately distorted, sometimes almost-whispered vocals. Flashes of intimacy, imagination, loss and rejuvenation punctuate the entrancing set of songs theatrically shaped with motifs and featuring voices that will later be heard on the record. Amongst those voices are Ariel Engle of Broken Social Scene/La Force, Hayden, Tim Kingsbury of Arcade Fire and Brendan Reed of The Unicorns/Arcade Fire.
The album was recorded with Grammy-winning producer Mark Lawson (Arcade Fire, Timber Timbre, Basia Bulat) in Montreal, with some parts made in home set-ups at a little cabin in the Russian river, up north in Grey County, in Prince Edward County and in Toronto.
