“Sure To Come” By iskwē

Singer/songwriter iskwē shares “Sure To Come,” the follow-up single to her “I Get High” Feat. Nina Hagen. “With so many ways to become obsolete in this world and all the things we’re afraid of, it brings me a sense of calm knowing the only piece that’s certain is some day I’ll be forgotten,” says iskwē. “We cancel each other at the push of a button; we crumble at the thought of being entirely alone. Whether it be our turn now or tomorrow, that day is sure to come.” The single was co-written and produced by Damian Taylor (Björk, Bomba Estéreo, The Killers) and recorded at Panoram Studio in Mexico City.

The song was recorded in Mexico City and features a beautiful group of musicians, including a real-life marimba played by Miguel Haller. “It had been a dream of mine to record this instrument live on a record, and I’m so happy I was finally able to do so,” says iskwē. “I wrote “Sure To Come” as a conversation with myself; I wanted to remind myself of the real reason I walk my walk and let go of the ones who’d rather talk the talk. I hope that this song can empower you and provide the same sense of acceptance that writing this song has done for me.”

This fall, iskwē will kick off her Canadian tour. “I CANNOT WAIT to bring this new music to the stage! It has been almost 5 years since I have seen some of these places. I am looking forward to reconnecting with my fans across the country and meeting lots of new folks,” shares iskwē. “This new music is like nothing I’ve ever done before…and recreating it for these live performances has been so much fun. I hope everyone is ready to move their bodies and be a part of this new chapter of my musical journal!”
