For immediate release:


02 February 2018 (Toronto, ON)Kiesza and Chris Malinchak have joined forces to bring to life new music with "Mother", released today via Island Records / Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. "Mother" is the first collaboration from singer/songwriter Kiesza whose career-defining multi-platinum world­wide dance music sensation “Hideaway” netted over 500 million global streams, and DJ/Producer/Songwriter Chris Malinchak whose 2013 hit song "So Good To Me" quickly became the most Shazamed record in the UK and the most played record on BBC Radio 1. At first glance, "Mother" is a departure for both; smooth, reggae-infused, 4-on-the-floor with a deeply spiritual cast. 

The video for "Mother" co-stars Kai Greene, who appeared as ‘Funshine’ on season two of Netflix’s runaway smash hit TV Show “Stranger Things” (October 2017). This comes on the heels of winning the title at the 2016 Arnold [Schwarzenegger] Classic. Watch HERE. Kiesza is currently recording more music and gearing up for an exciting 2018.
