Fresh Sounds: Tanika Charles – Different Morning feat. DijahSB

Twice JUNO-nominated and two-time Polaris Prize listed, Toronto's soul songstress Tanika Charles unveils her album Papillon de Nuit: The Night Butterfly, alongside the release of the new single Different Morning featuring DijahSB.

Papillon de Nuit: The Night Butterfly is the third studio album from Canadian Soul/R&B powerhouse Tanika Charles and is slated to be released worldwide on Milan-based Record Kicks label on April 08th. Composed and recorded while in and out of lockdowns, Papillon de Nuit is an album anchored in growth and maturity. The thematic inspiration came from an unlikely source, a creature that soars after the sun sets, but often goes unnoticed until the light shines on it. It is the "papillon de nuit" to some, but drably referred to as a moth by others, revealing a bias in language alone.


Listen to Tanika Charles new single Different Morning featuring DijahSB, from her forthcoming new album Papillon de Nuit: The Night Butterfly:

Following the success of Soul Run (2016/17) and The Gumption (2019), Tanika had found a comfortable pace of releasing albums then hitting the road the following year to bring her show to new markets far and wide. So when things changed for all of us, and plans of touring The Gumption properly fell through, there was a realization that getting to work on the next project was the healthiest choice to make.

I think this album represents my best work to date. And yet, it also represents me coming to terms with who I am as an artist. For the first time I think I've actually accepted my own voice. I can hear beyond the imperfections, and I realized that when paired with the right music, it can sound pretty good. I still have my doubts and my dark places, but a little less of them, said Tanika about her new album.
