Composer/producer, songwriter, and singer Casey MQ has dropped new single “Me, I Think I Found It.” The track is off the multi-artist’s forthcoming album Later that day, the day before, the day before that due June 7th via Ghostly International following the lead single “The Make Believe” featuring Oklou.

Elaborating on the meaning behind “Me, I Think I Found It,” Casey shares, “I began writing this song at the piano on the edge of spring quietly as the seasons in Toronto were changing. There was a piano line that I would play over and over… A few friends were texting me to hang out in the park and so I scribbled down the idea the best I could and ran out the door. The song, for me, is an inner divine. I found love and it’s something I held individually whether there was someone on the other side or not.”

Later that day, the day before, or the day before that came about as Casey MQ spiraled into unconscious and subconscious-led writing sessions at the piano. With the new album he questions what is true entirely, understanding our mind’s tendency to bend and project onto pictures of the past. Across vivid, baroque pop balladry, Casey MQ reorients his recording project and point of view under the notion that memories are malleable. All the joy, pain, love, and loss housed within remembrance is open to interpretation and deconstruction, which he does deftly, with curiosity and complete artistic freedom.

“It’s a memory album,” Casey puts it simply, winding up for the deeper unpacking, “and it might be a breakup album, too…there are more questions than answers.” Engaging his dreams and sitting with sheet music at his newly acquired piano, he looked to new and old inspirations including the works of Claude Debussy, Joni Mitchell, and Joe Hisaishi’s beloved Studio Ghibli film scores. “Since I was young, I always wanted to write a piano album.” On Later that day…, Casey combines his electronica expertise with his love for piano compositions to create an atmosphere, giving Casey’s more spacious, minimal arrangements a distinct luster and sheen. The textures and tones shift from song to song as if mirroring the way our minds constantly recontextualize, remember, and forget.

Casey’S 2020 album babycasey, which gave voice to songs seen through the lens of childhood, various film score work and collaborations with artists such as Oklou, Eartheater, and Vagabon. His gifts as a producer and songwriter are rooted in textural world-building and the excavation of personal truth. babycasey includes the popular songs “Candyboy” and “Walls Could Talk.” Last year, Casey also teamed up with Cecile Believe for the track “I Got a Bike.”
