One of Canada’s biggest musical exports to have emerged in recent years has been Vancouver-based alt-pop artist Jade LeMac.

After accumulating more than 30 million streams to date, LeMac finally unveils her debut EP today, entitled ‘Constellations’ (out now).

“I’m very excited to be releasing my first EP. It’s named after ‘Constellations’, the first song I had released. It’s the song that started this whole journey and I wouldn’t be here without it. I have learned so much about myself, my song writing, and storytelling through this EP. The process has made me explore my own creativity and imagination, and brought me to these places and stories that never would have existed if I hadn’t written it. Overall, I’m hyped about being able to share this first piece of me. It’s the beginning of a new chapter in my own story, and I can’t wait for what’s to come and to continue doing what I love.”

Alongside the release of the EP is new single ‘Car Accident’. A beautifully powerful and emotive ballad, the song looks into the dynamics of a complex relationship.

“This is the first time I have ever written from the perspective of two people and I love how subtle but how impactful the changes are. I was actually writing the lyrics on the bus and as I was coming up with this story in my head I was seeing myself inside of these characters and feeling all of these feelings of two people who have both lost something, and I ended up just crying the whole way. It’s probably one of my favourite songs on the EP.”
