Louise Burns shares "Pharaoh," begins work on third album

Vancouver’s Louise Burns just released her new 7-inch featuring the hauntingly beautiful single “Pharaoh.”  Produced by Burns and Colin Stewart (Dan Managan, Black Mountain) and mixed by Damian Taylor (Arcade Fire, Austra, Bjork), the song showcases Burns’s singular vocals and intricate songwriting, drawing upon influences ranging from Nick Cave, Kate Bush, The Cure, The Pretenders, to Aaliyah and other well-deserving divas. Listen to it HERE.

Already a 20-year vet of the music industry and she’s barely 30 years old. She witnessed the heady last gasp of the majors in the late-’90s (Burns co-founded pop band Lillix at 11 and signed to Madonna’s Maverick Records at 15), and was front and centre for Canada’s indie renaissance. Now Burns is an in-demand collaborator (Gold & Youth), high-profile hired gun, an acclaimed solo musician (2011’s Mellow Drama, long listed for the Polaris Music Prize, and 2013’s Midnight Mass), and multi-instrumentalist whose celebrated songwriting is equal parts grit and gloss
Burns is currently working on her third solo album with co-producer Colin Stewart and Damian Taylor due out later this year.
