In a sexy nod to dominatrix fetishism and the female form, Kiesza is back with new single "Love Me With Your Lie," from her second studio album "Crave," via her own label Zebra Spirit Tribe. "Crave" reveals a fearless portrayal of Kiesza’s personal experiences over the last few years, which includes a traumatic and life-changing year in 2017.
After a long period of self-reflection and personal healing, Kiesza wanted, primarily, to deliver an uplifting sonic experience. With elements of synth-pop, electronic funk, and a shimmering vocal performance, she does just that.
There is so much I could and want to tell you about what it took to get to this album and why it sounds the way it does... It’s there to give you a second wind and boost your spirit. I wanted it to be positive, for you and for me, as I know a lot of us need that right now. – Kiesza
While putting a spotlight on Kiesza's signature mix of electronic pop hooks and dance-friendly vibes, "Crave" features production from Peter Wade, phonehome, Bobby Love, Chris Malinchak, Electric, Louis Biancaniello & Mike Biancaniello, and LICK DROP. The enticing music video for "Love Me With Your Lie" was directed, edited and styled by 10th Dimension studios, a creative collective based in Hollywood. With her new single, Kiesza celebrates the physicality and temporary rapture of a dance-floor connection. For the moment, this sultry groove will have to suffice as a visceral reminder of what it is like to enjoy the company of strangers without PPE.
Kiesza was raised in Calgary, Canada, and is a former member of the Royal Canadian Navy, a ballet dancer, and beauty queen. This song is featured on our Groovy Summer playlist.
