Brooklyn-based vocalist Corina Corina is proud to announce the release of her second full-length album, â€œThe Free Way,â€ on March 18, 2014. The record came to fruition following two national tours in 2013 and nine months in the studio with creative partner Willie Green, who also produced her first album â€œThe Eargasm.â€ Corina Corina’s unique style, combining the soulful, the sexy, the sassy, and the vulnerable has once again found its home over Green’s robust cinematic instrumentals. A two- week National tour will immediately follow the release.
The offering showcases Corina’s fearless emotional delivery and three octave vocal range at its strongest yet. Partially funded by a successful IndieGoGo campaign, the record captures the unmistakably original sound of a truly gifted vocalist and songwriter. The album is enhanced by an outstanding roster of guests spots from around the country, including one of New York’s most commanding lyrical performers, Elucid (Armand Hammer), eclectic poet and emcee Melissa Czarnik (Milwaukee), rapper Henry Canyons (Los Angeles) and a special bonus track featuring critically-acclaimed prolific New York MC billy woods. In addition to Willie Green (Backwoodz Studioz), production comes courtesy of a team of accomplished soundsmiths: Steel Tipped Dove (Greed Head, Modern Shark), Dirt E. Dutch (Little Ax), Deto-22 (Connecticut) and Minneapolis-based Electronic performance duo, Dichotomy.
The album’s first single, â€œI Canâ€™t Resist (feat. Henry Canyons)â€, is an uptempo pop instrumental showcasing Willie Green’s signature earth-shattering drums. The song describes the never ending cycle of being in the service industry, and how it equally supports and distracts from the creative process for an artist (â€œIâ€™m sick of all of it then I take a sip / another buck a better tip I’ll never quitâ€). In contrast, the somber and heartfelt Deto-22-produced â€œKamalaâ€ showcases concepts of time and adulthood. Corina writes a letter to the daughter she hopes to have someday. (â€œI know how much you’ll change me and my priorities / Canâ€™t do this prematurely, baby, please wait for meâ€).
