“Sweet Tuesday (Stars Mix)” from iskwē’s new album, The Stars (a re-imagination of her album acākosīk). This song was written for her dear friend, a kindred spirit who ventured back to the sky world after a long and courageous battle with cancer. It is the follow-up to “Night Danger (Lovers Mix)”.

“The Stars version of ‘Sweet Tuesday’ had been a dream of mine for quite some time, working with a chamber-style arrangement, which had originally been inspired by Bjork’s performance of Unravel at Riverside Church. I really loved the idea of simplifying even further, to the root essence of each tune, attempting to capture simply the emotion.”

iskwē is a creator and communicator of music and movement, and a teller of stories. Her recordings have received critical praise and attention: acākosīk (nominated for Juno Award: Adult Alternative Album, Winner Best Music Video for “Little Star”(2020); and The Fight Within (2018: Juno Award nomination, Longlisted for the Polaris Music Prize).

The Stars is the inverse of acākosīk [English-The Stars]. It is an elegant and intimate sharing of the collection and features new arrangements of piano, cello and violin and a dramatic orchestral reimagining of “Night Danger (Lovers Mix)” allowing iskwē’s songwriting, voice and spirit to shine. The Stars invites us into an emotional and soulful experience with iskwē.
