Alessia Cara – Here

18-year-old Alessia Caracciolo (Cara) is a talented singer-songwriter from Brampton, Ontario signed to Def Jam. The first single from her upcoming project is the Pop and Oak and Sebastian Kole-produced "Here," a soulful and bittersweet record about straying from the norm.

"Here" is a song "for all the antisocial, awkward, and miserable party-goers of the world," Alessia told The FADER. "This one time I went to a party and while there, I realized how much I hated it, along with every other party I had ever gone to. We wrote about it the next day."

After one listen to "Here," it's safe to say this newcomer has a golden future. She may be an "anti-social pessimist" on the record, but she better brace herself for being around a lot of people because we're gonna go on a limb and say her fanbase will multiply very quickly.

Alessia Cara is the truth!
