Erika de Casier is ‘ice’ and announces Montreal and Toronto shows
Erika de Casier shares a new single and video from her highly-anticipated third album Still, out on 21 February via 4AD. ‘ice’ featuring Tampa rap duo They Hate Change marks the first collaboration in de Casier’s discography, and what a marvellous first showing. For the three-minute cut de Casier moonlights as the duo’s third member, flipping a classic hip-hop trope (“Ice – you put it all on me,” she sings) into a comment on a frustratingly noncommittal person. The song follows previously-released single ‘Lucky’ and arrives with a video directed by Erika herself.
In addition to the single, de Casier is also announcing North American and European tours that’ll bring Still to some of her biggest venues yet. Beginning on 26 March in Montreal, she’ll play nine shows across North America, including a stop at Toronto’s Velvet Underground (March 27th), before heading to the desert to play both weekends of Coachella in April.
