“The melody in "Kiss Strangers" seems to match with the flow, synthesizing a gentle and soft sound. The vocals from Emily Clair give goosebumps, dissolve sadness and gently cover you with their warmth. Music that can reach deeply inside your heart and leave a sign there.”

“Мелодия словно плывёт по течению, синтезируя нежный и мягкий звук, а вокал -Emily Clair- пробирает до мурашек, становится твоим спасением от печали и нежно, куплет за куплетом накрывает тебя своим теплом. Музыка, которая способна разбить ваше сердце на пазлы и потом вместе с вами собирать его вновь и вновь.”


Canadian country artist Emily Clair is celebrating the release of her new single, “Kiss Strangers” – now available on all digital streaming platforms. The first single to be released from her first full-length album, “Stealing Hearts”, “Kiss Strangers” will be released to Canadian country radio on March 18th.

“Kiss Strangers” was co-written by Emily Clair along with Bobbi Smith – of Canadian country trio The Heels – and seasoned songwriter David Borys (Wes Mack, Kadooh).

Speaking about “Kiss Strangers”, Emily Clair says, "In country music, women are often presented as dwelling on past relationships by drowning in a box of ice cream or a bottle of wine. I wanted to break away from that perception and offer a fresh take on the post-relationship mindset. With Bobbi and David, wrote a sassy and empowering break-up anthem for all the strong, single women out there who want to let go of yesterday's heartbreak. Starting over doesn’t have to be so sad. The thrill of indulging in new adventures can also be fun and liberating."

Produced by Emily Clair's frequent collaborator, CMAO-nominated Shawn Moore, “Kiss Strangers” builds on Emily's country music foundation, but adds a more upbeat, pop-influenced flair that matches the adventurous theme and energy of the song.

The release of “Kiss Strangers” follows the artist’s well-received debut live-off-the-floor EP “Stripped” in 2021, along with five consecutive Top 40 singles on CBC Country/Sirius XM in Canada – the most recent ones being her 2021 efforts, “Drive Me Home” and “Limousine”. Two of the other Top 40 singles (“The Sobering Truth” and “Me or the Whiskey”) also made the semi-finals of the Unsigned Only Music Competition.

For Emily Clair – who grew up in Ajax, Ontario but is now based in Greater Napanee – the bold artistry behind “Kiss Strangers” is poised to usher in a new chapter for her, as the first single from her debut album, “Stealing Hearts”, which is in the early recording stages. Known primarily for her heartfelt ballads, “Kiss Strangers” shows more diversity, and the rest of the album promises to showcase more artistic depth and creative risks from her as an artist. In the meantime, Emily Clair wants the women who connect with “Kiss Strangers” to feel understood and uplifted after listening to her new single.

She says, “You don't have to be that girl who is grieving over heartache. We’ve all been there before. If your ex can move on, you have the strength to move on, too."

“Kiss Strangers” is now available on all streaming platforms. It will be followed by a Canadian country radio release on March 18th and an official music video release in the weeks ahead.
