Ladan, the artist formerly known on stage as Cold Specks, will return with new music in 2021. It will be her first new music since 2017’s Fools Paradise which was described as her most personal work yet. The artist recognized for her twistedly enthralling lyrics and distinctive soulful voice, has dug deep and returned to her roots. A masterful body of work, it intimately explores her identity as a Somali-Canadian woman. She’s unveiled and allowed herself to stretch her palette thematically. The rawness that’s deemed Cold Specks a dark soul, has revealed itself to be a cathartic after glow, illuminating the sort of light born through healing.
