BAD CHILD UNVEILS BROODING “ROYALTY REMIX” WITH NO LOVE FOR THE MIDDLE CHILD
30 JULY 2021 (TORONTO, ON) –Today, singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist known as BAD CHILD reveals the ominous “Royalty Remix” of a previously released track in collaboration with LA-based indie-alternative artist No Love For The Middle Child through Capitol Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.
“Royalty” was originally released earlier this year as a track on BAD CHILD’s debut record Free Trial. BAD CHILD recalls on the original track, “‘Royalty’ is a song I want to scare people with, it’s about wanting too much and becoming enveloped in greed. It’s very angry and NIN inspired it heavily.” The intensity of the track is enhanced with the remixed version of the original.
Over the past three years, BAD CHILD has quietly been gathering momentum as an artist with only a handful of releases including his debut EP, Sign Up, a COVERS EP including reinterpretations of songs by Harry Styles, Bill Withers and Soundgarden plus his debut full length record Free Trial. He has quickly become one of Canada’s most exciting exports; profiled in Complex, HillyDilly, Sidewalk Hustle, Atwood Magazine, Wonderland Magazine and Toronto Star. BAD CHILD’s “Candy”, featuring Ryan Chambers, was included on the soundtrack for the highly publicized Netflix film, To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You. The only Canadian to be featured on the album which includes tracks from Sofi Tukker, Marina, Gordi and more. Last year, BAD CHILD’s single “Blood” was featured in a global Apple Watch campaign. Back in Canada, his first radio single “Breathing Fire” peaked at top five on alternative radio and was nominated for a 2019 SOCAN Songwriting Prize alongside Dilly Dally, grandson and Kaytranda. BAD CHILD teamed up with fellow Canadians Justin Bieber, Geddy Lee, Avril Lavigne, Walk Off The Earth and many more on a Bill Withers cover of the classic “Lean On Me” for the historic airing of Stronger Together Tous Ensemble, a broadcast event paying tribute to frontline health workers and raising funds for Food Banks Canada in the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic.
BAD CHILD’s eccentric music and unique vision landed him on the festival circuit in the summer of 2019 playing some of the world’s most prestigious line ups including Lollapalooza, Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds and Osheaga.
