Grammy award winning artist Alex Cuba released his new album El Swing Que Yo Tengo yesterday (Monday).
The title translates from Spanish to The Swing That I Have and was recorded in Cuba’s studio in Smithers.
His previous album, Mendo, was released in 2021 and won a Grammy for Best Latin Pop Album in 2022.
“It was a fun learning experience for me. Exploring how to mix my organic sound with electronic elements, slapping my bass on the title track, and reimagining the sound of a legendary Cuban song,” said Cuba.
While most of the album was produced by Cuba, the closing track Aguita de Coco features Rowanda artist Butera Knowless.
Cuba will be headlining the Midsummer Music Festival in Smithers on July 1st.
His album is available now on all streaming platforms.
