Toronto, ON – August 16, 2016 – After announcing his debut album earlier this summer, Toronto producer Harrison is back to share a new single from the project with Vertigo, featuring a l l i e. The new track is a breezy, early 2000s dance inspired cut, which features vocals by Toronto up-and-comer, a l l i e. Vertigo is now available on all digital retailers and streaming services, including Spotify and Apple Music.
Harrison spoke with Pigeons & Planes about the single: “When I first made this song I wasn’t sure if it would remain an instrumental or not. After weeks of overthinking it, I chose to send it to a l l i e. She and I have been chatting collabs for a long time, and I chose this one for her because it seemed like an unusual choice. Traditionally, her music is half the tempo and rooted in RnB and hip hop. I wanted to see what she could do with something that was double the tempo and rooted in funk. What she delivered turned the vibe up 200% with her deliciously harmonized pop melodies, while also keeping it sultry. The woman is a force to be reckoned with. I am very grateful that she’s a part of this record.”
Harrison previously shared two offerings from the album with a couple of stellar collaborations. He first partnered with Clairmont The Second on It’s Okay I Promise, followed by the Ryan Hemsworth feature, Vanilla, which also arrived as a single on Ryan Hemsworth’s Secret Songs label. The third, So Far From Home, arrived as a funky collaboration with Young Guv (Ben Cook of Fucked Up, No Warning).
These diverse singles mesh together as one singular artistic statement on Checkpoint Titanium, which will arrive on September 9th via Last Gang Records. Regarded as one of the most promising young artists in the Toronto music scene, Harrison intends to live up to the hype with his debut album. You can now pre-order Checkpoint Titanium and receive the singles as instant gratification downloads. The album will also be available on vinyl and is now up for pre-order. Check out the full album details below as well as the previously released songs.
