Alessia Cara releases new single “Ready,” announces fall tour dates

Def Jam RecordingsAs promised, Alessia Cara has released her new single “Ready,” the first release from her upcoming EP This Summer.

The “Scars to Your Beautiful” singer surprised fans last week when she revealed she’d be releasing new music. 

“Caught the writing bug out of the blue and made an EP. It’s called This Summer. I’ll be releasing a new track every couple of weeks until it’s release,” she wrote on Instagram.

In the song, Alessia addresses a guy who doesn’t seem to be mature enough to handle a relationship with her. “Why are you pulling me down/If you got things to figure out?” she sings. “You’re still only a boy, you’re scared of a good girl/You’re not ready for me.”

Alessia’s This Summer EP will be out September 6. While she’s currently on tour with Shawn Mendes, she’s also just announced a U.S. headlining tour for the fall, kicking off October 21 in Boston, MA. Tickets go on sale this Friday.  Fellow Canadian singer Ryland James, who just released his debut single “In My Head,” will open for her.
