Montreal-based musician and producer Caila Thompson-Hannant aka Mozart’s Sister has announced the release of her sophomore album Field of Love. Her new record is the follow up to her 2014 debut Being. Field of Love will be released February 17th on Arbutus Records.
Writing for Field of Love began in early 2015. Reliving her childhood love of ‘90s dance pop, Caila wanted to capture the spirit of the era’s pop song – colorful, cartoonish, goofy but always earnest. Throughout the writing process, she maintained only one rule: follow through on every musical desire. The critique could happen later, once the fun was finished. Ditching barriers and prejudice, her aim was to make music everyone was invited to.
“I wrote Field of Love at a point when I truly did feel I was floating in a field of love. Once I got going the songwriting process happened very easily. As the songs came I realized: oh I really like these. There was a naivety to them and I felt like I could really cut loose when writing”.
