FEBRUARY 13, 2014

April 22nd will mark the return of Juno Award winner Meaghan Smith with the release of her new album HAVE A HEART (full track list below). The new album shows Meaghan bringing a new, bold pop production to the vintage style that earned her debut album THE CRICKETS ORCHESTRA such critical acclaim. A prime example of this ambitious production is in the first single, “Have a Heart” which has already become one of the most added songs at Canadian radio. Fans can pre-order HAVE A HEART (CD and vinyl with bonus CD configurations or bundled with a T-shirt) at the newly re-launched MeaghanSmith.com. Those who pre-order will receive an instant download of the single.

In addition to the early radio success, Meaghan has also released a video for the first single, which can be seen here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XotEEH-eAjw). The single hits on a classic Meaghan Smith theme with the lyric “Love can be sweet but it might fall apart, but you'll only feel the beat if you have a heart.” Of the song, Meaghan says “To me it means to be brave – to feel things. You’ll only be a part of life if you take chances. Go for that thing that you really want. It’s terrifying, but that’s how to live.”

When making HAVE A HEART Meaghan knew that despite her critical success with THE CRICKETS ORCHESTRA, she wanted to try something new and ambitious. Of the new album, she says ““Have a Heart is about taking a giant risk. That’s what I’m doing with this album. It’s such a drastic change. My heart beats faster every time I think about it, but that's how I know I'm alive. Forget the net. Just jump and see what happens.”
