Toronto’s Peter Katz is back with a brand new single. “Like We Used To Be” dropped on May 8 ahead of the album’s September release, titled City of Our Lives; produced by JUNO-nominated producer Derek Hoffman.
The single’s chill pop vibes come from Katz and co-writer and Grammy-Award winning producer/songwriter Rich Jaques. Featuring breathy vocals and dreamy synths, Katz released an accompanying lyric video full of warm, colourful visuals.
The new album will be the first from Katz since his 2015 album We Are The Reckoning, which was praised by CBC q Radio host Tom Power as “one of the most heartfelt, beautiful and vulnerable records of the year.”
“Like We Used To Be” is about hitting that definitive end moment in a relationship;” shares Katz in a press release. “Somehow that person still holds this ability to make your heart pound and your palms sweat, but you reach a point where you’re able to feel the nostalgia of it all, without feeling like you need to go back. You can see a way to finally begin to move on.”
Fans can pre-order the album and stream “Like We Used To Be” now. The full album, City of Our Lives, is available on September 18.
Rebecca here- a Niagara native now living and breathing music in Toronto. As a Ryerson journalism graduate and a self-proclaimed music junkie, I’ve been fortunate enough to write for brands like Andpop and Really Records, and now Canadian Beats. My tastes in music are all over the map- Stevie Wonder to Fall Out Boy; Miranda Lambert to One Direction – which is why I spend almost as much money on concerts as I do on rent. But I have no regrets. If you like my ramblings you can also find me on Twitter (RMattina5) & Instagram (rmattina93).
