new music: canadian singer melanie durrant evokes ’60s soul with her new single, ‘mr wonderful’

July 9, 2015

Listen to the new single from Toronto-based singer/songwriter Melanie Durrant, ‘Mr Wonderful’. The release comes from her new album, ‘Anticipation’ – a collection infused with old-time soul, jazz, and RnB. Regarding her 11-track LP, Durrant states: “The whole process was challenging and amazing. If I were to point out a highlight of making this album, I would say meeting & working with new people and making new friends. I’ve been a bit of a loner for the past few years and this whole project woke me up and made me feel like I could breath again. It was like stepping into your favourite shoes that you found neglected at the back of your closet and falling in love with them all over again.” Listen to ‘Mr Wonderful’ below.
