After releasing the singles Part of Your World and Not Perfect earlier this summer, Mark Clennon finally unveils Passion, a future soul and R&B infused EP, which features the two previously released tracks. The Toronto-based musician also unveils a music video for Not Perfect, a sensual and emotional track that embodies a complicated breakup and all the feelings involved. It’s a song about the complicated parts of a relationship and I think that it’s something that everyone can relate to, he explains.
Passion is Mark Clennon's sophomore EP, and debut Bonsound release. It follows 2016’s When the Smoke Clears EP. With Passion, the intention was to experiment with a variety of styles and sounds. It was recorded with producers Rainer + Grimm, known mostly for their collaborations with The Weeknd and Drake. Mark has fond memories of the time spent in the studio with them. We would sit in the studio for hours jamming and talking about life and whatever was going on at the time. I felt inspired, I felt safe, just as if I were hanging out with friends I had known my whole life, tells the musician. Montrealer Joey Sherrett (formerly of The Posterz), with whom Mark Clennon developed a strong bond in the studio, also collaborated to the recording.
