It's with great enthusiasm that we've announced the signature of future soul artist Mark Clennon to our record label. The Toronto-based musician unveiled Part of Your World, the first single off his sophomore EP to be released in September. To write this very personal song, Clennon drew inspiration from a period in his life when he felt like an outsider. The lyrics address interracial relationships and the challenges of fitting into a culture that is foreign to you, into a space that is a little inhospitable.

The single is available on all music services.
Inspired by Pop Up Video, a cult TV show from the late ‘90s, the music video was produced and co-directed by the artist, which he considers to be a huge accomplishment. With much determination and after months of hard work, Clennon travelled to Jamaica to shoot the video on the tiny island of Maiden Cay. I chose to shoot on the Cay as a symbolism of the isolation I felt in that time in my life when I wrote this song, he explains.
PASSION, Mark Clennon's upcoming EP is due out on September 6, 2019. It follows the release of When The Smoke Clears (2016).
