Montreal singer-songwriter Krief is pleased to debut ‘Mississippi’, the second single to be taken from his upcoming fourth solo record automanic.
Picking up where the grandiose first single ‘Life As It Happens (ft. Sam Roberts)’ left off, the snappier, post-punk-infused Mississippi plays out a narrative of addiction and the subsequent fear of facing your true self.
Krief summarizes “The song Mississippi is an inner dialog between a substance (the narrator), and the person addicted to the substance (Annie), the song is meant to illustrate the struggle within your own mind when confronting yourself”
Similarly to his previous albums, Krief created automanic independently, playing all guitars, bass, drums, percussion, piano and keyboards. He also recorded, produced and mixed the album between Studio Mixart in Montreal and Studio Bottega, on an alpaca farm in Kelowna, B.C. Mastering duties were undertaken by Phil Demetro (Kevin Drew, Hey Rosetta) in Toronto and engineer David Schiffman (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tom Petty, Johnny Cash, Nine Inch Nails) monitored the Montreal sessions.
