Edmonton-born, Toronto-based songwriter, Ella Coyes has shared a new single for their project, Sister Ray. The single, “Reputations” is the latest release from their upcoming debut album, Communion, to be released on May 13, 2022, via Royal Mountain Records. They will support Communion with a full run of North American dates (TBC shortly), these come off the back of a recent slot at SXSW and previous shows opening for Julien Baker and Mount Eerie.
The new single signposts another crucial part of the forthcoming debut album documenting a true coming-of-age tale when Coyes packed up and traveled the length of Canada.
Speaking about the track, they say:
“I wrote this song to make myself feel better about breaking up with my partner and moving across the country. It felt so joyous to me when I was writing it, to say some of the things out loud that I had been tentative about for so long. It’s one of the most “produced” songs on the record, and we leaned into it. This was my little anthem and I wanted to hear some of that in the production.”
