On the heels of competing as a semi-finalist at the prestigious 2016 Eurovision Song Contest, Rykka is set to release her debut single “Bad Boy” from her forthcoming album Beatitudes via Cordova Bay Records on July 8. The infectious electro-pop fused track is produced and co-written by Warne Livesey (Chris Walla, Matthew Good, Kandle), who also produced Rykka’s new LP at Coalition Music Studios in Toronto. Beatitudes will be released later this year, followed by a support tour this Fall. More information on the release and tour dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
What Rykka has to say about Bad Boy: “I wrote this song because I dated a lot to find out what I want. I would always date highly creative people who were obsessed with their goals to a point that they had nothing left to give back. Then I realized that there are people like that who are more balanced to give and take. Being a crazy artist myself, it reminds me of ego I want to be as well.
Warne and I recorded this song in Toronto when the temperature outside was colder than the moon. This song is one of the songs on the album that has the most solo input from me. I wrote the bulk of it at home in Switzerland and with Warne we fixed it up and made it what it is now. So I feel like it’s very close to me.”
