Mieke shares stunning new single ‘Sleeping Alone’ ahead of new EP release

Mieke 7

Ontario native Elissa Mielke – performing as Mieke – has shared beguiling new song “Sleeping Alone.”

The mesmeric track is taken from the Canadian artist’s new self-titled EP, Mieke, scheduled for release on the 28th of August.

The singer and songwriter says of the new collection of songs: “I’ve been in problematic situations with producers and major labels over the last few years; either people tried to take the project in direction that felt artificial, or I had to sign on for a career without creative involvement. I needed to make something honest and raw. Something strange and vulnerable. Something thoughtful and free. Something that was authentic to where I’m at.

“For this EP I worked with Don Kerr and Howie Beck (Feist, Hayden, Bahamas), people I trust,” Mieke continues. “Don records out of his house so we did the vocals in his dining room and the instruments in his basement. That let me fully connect with the feeling I had wherever I wrote the songs – in Toronto, in Tokyo, in my small town high school, or in London – and to go back to that moment.”
