Montreal-born LA-based artist Chiiild has shared his highly anticipated debut album, Hope For Sale, via Avant Garden Records.
This genre-bending album sees Chiild channeling the sounds of artists like D’Angelo, Tame Impala, Pink Floyd, and Marvin Gaye. But, he takes these inspirations and turns them into something you’ve never heard before. Throughout the 11 tracks, Chiiild uses his music to tell stories about diversity. Hope For Sale asks questions about what it’s like to be a human, and aims to unify people through his personal experiences.
“Aiming to cover the whole human experience, I dive into my outlook on life, love and social justice,” Chiiild says. “‘This is Hope for Sale.'”
Stream Hope For Sale below.
Opening with the album’s title track, Hope For Sale explodes into a danceable anthem. From the dreamily melancholia on “Hold On Till We Get There” to the heartwrenching, slow build of “Gone,” Chiiild takes you on a journey.
Alongside the new album, Chiiild has announced his upcoming Apocalyptic Optimistic Tour. He will also be supporting Leon Bridges next year on the US leg of his Gold Diggers Soul tour.
