Hear Alessia Cara’s Rebellious New Song, ‘Wild Things’

Singer-songwriter’s debut LP, ‘Know-It-All’ set for release next month

Nineteen-year-old singer-songwriter Alessia Cara is following up her solid debut single “Here” and accompanying EP Four Pink Walls with her first LP, Know-It-All. The singer has previewed the album with the anthemic new song “Wild Things.” Know-It-All will be released on November 13th via Def Jam.

Like her song “Seventeen,” “Wild Things” is a celebration of youth and follows in the vein of the anti-cool kid stance on “Here.” Unlike her debut single, however, Cara goes for more straight-up pop on the more fast-paced, percussive tune. “We don’t care what they say, no way,” Cara sings on the rebellious track.

Cara gained attention for her smooth, Isaac Hayes-sampling “Here,” which was written from the perspective of an unwilling, reluctant party attendee. In July, the singer made her late-night debut when the Roots backed her on a performance of the single on The Tonight Show. A month later, her EP Four Pink Walls was released. Earlier this month, the Def Jam singer performed at the Tidal X concert, which also featured performances from Beyonce, Jay Z and Nicki Minaj.
