As an acclaimed songwriter, Sorbara’s musically diverse credits include having written songs for Keith Urban, Cyndi Lauper, Pretty Sister, and Carly Rae Jepsen with The Knocks.
Sorbara said, “Dragonette has spent a lot of time as an itinerant band, releasing singles and collaborations with wonderful artists and labels all over the place. But now I’m so excited to start a partnership with BMG and with a record that I really couldn’t be more proud of. I’m so stoked to be launching this relationship on the foundation of this album and looking forward to building it from there.”
