Alessia Cara: "I've Never Danced"

Alessia Cara stopped by Elvis Duran and the Morning Show to perform about her new single "Growing Pains", off of her upcoming sophomore album, The Pains of Growing - expected to be released in September. 

The 21-year-old Grammy award-winning artist admitted that her sophomore album is very different from her first record. 

"I think I was a lot more honest this time around, in terms of what I'm going through and some of the negative things I'm going through that I didn't necessarily touch on the first time. It's a lot more introspective. More mature. That last album was very teen angst times a thousand!"

She went on to tell Elvis Duran and Danielle Moanro that there are a lot of songs on the album about specific people she has relationships with, including a particular track she wrote from the perspective of a friend. The overall theme of the record centers around the pains of growing, but Alessia promises it's not all sad! 

When asked about what things outside of her comfort zone make her the most nervous, the Canadian native was quick to name doing live interviews and dancing! 

"I've never danced before, but I don't think I would ever do that though. No one wants to see that. Trust me."

What can we expect from Alessia on her next tour (minus dancing, ha!)? Something more refined than she's done in the past. It's been three years since her debut solo album, and she's a different person now. 

"I think I want to make it a bit more simple, artistic, more sophisticated," Alessia told Elvis Duran about her thoughts on what she hopes her album tour will be.
