Krisitan North Serving Disco Fantasy on His New Single and Music Video

Montreal crooner Kristian North releases a first single in anticipation of his second full length: Passion Play.


"Fantasy", the first single and opening track off Kristian North’s upcoming album, Passion Play, sets the tone for the earworm-filled new LP. This mid-tempo, four-to-the-floor, disco anthem drags the listener to a virtual dancefloor “where the bluest of bluebirds sing in perfect English” to all patrons. "Fantasy", as well as all songs on the full length, were produced, recorded and mixed by Renny Wilson (Anemone, Michael Rault, Faith Healer) and mastered by Harris Newman (Wolf Parade, Patrick Watson, Orville Peck).

'' I was kind of humming the chorus in my head and then I watched Donkey Skin and it all clicked. There’s something to be said about reality there but mostly it’s just candy, melodrama, fairy tales. We did very little in the way of second takes. Abigail was basically running out the door, that’s why it sounds so cool. The song has some nods to George Michael, who I listened to religiously for a couple years.''
