4 Dec


Kiesza has teamed up with Diane Warren on new music.

The legendary songwriter recently co-penned “Til it Happens to You” for Lady Gaga, taken from the 2015 documentary film, “The Hunting Ground,” which deals with campus rape in the United States.

Warren’s recent credits also include Leona Lewis’ “You Knew Me When” [Island], Ciara’s “I Got You” [Epic], Paloma Faith’s “Only Love Can Hurt Like This” [RCA] and Celine Dion’s “Unfinished Songs” [Columbia].

Furthermore, fans of her poignant songwriting should look out for the upcoming projects by Zendaya [Hollywood], Lea Michele [Columbia], Mariah Carey [Epic], Grace [RCA], K. Michelle [Atlantic], and Brandy [MBK].

Meanwhile, Kiesza – real name Kiesa Rae Ellestad – is expected to release her second major label album next year through Island Records.

The still-untitled project serves as the follow-up to 2014’s “Sound of a Woman,” which topped the US Billboard Dance / Electronic Albums Chart and spawned singles including “Hideaway” and “Giant in My Heart.”

On the songwriting front, Kiesza co-penned songs for Gorgon City (“Go All Night”) and Jennifer Lopez (“Feel the Light”). She also confirmed involvement on the next projects by Rihanna [Roc Nation], and Naughty Boy [Virgin EMI].
