Canadian songwriter Kate Rogers has experienced some success in the UK, and she’s looking to have an impact here at home with the upcoming Canuck release of her new album. Repeat Repeat, which is credited to her Kate Rogers Band, is due out February 19.
The album was recorded at Toronto’s Lincoln County Social Club with producer Chris Stringer (Timber Timbre, Snowblink, Ohbijou). Unlike some of Rogers’ past work, these tunes were penned alone. “For years, co-writing was usually my go-to process because I always believed that more heads were better than one,” she said in a statement, “but I wanted to push myself this time out and so I made a promise to myself I’d fight through it on my own.”
Hear the bouncy pop number “Contender” over at Quick Before It Melts. A video for the previously released album cut “Anger Management” is at the bottom of the page.
Rogers plans to announce a Canadian tour soon. In the meantime, she will celebrate the release of the album with a show at Toronto’s Drake Underground on February 22.
Repeat Repeat will be released in the UK and Europe this spring.
