Alex Cuba Returns with New Album 'Mendó'
Published May 06, 2021Alex Cuba is ready to make his next album statement. Today the Cuban-Canadian songwriter revealed he will return with Mendó, his latest full-length.
Mendó will arrive on May 21 and marks the follow-up to 2019's Sublime. According to a press release, the upcoming album finds him going "bigger than he ever has before, reaching across the world to collaborate with some of Latin music's biggest stars, ironically, while at home."
Cuba himself stated the following:
When I began to imagine this album, I knew I didn't want it to be small in any way. Neither did I want it to be known forever as the album that was born out of the pandemic. I was convinced that it definitely was the moment to aim at creating something very special, unique and vibrant, fuelled by the very deep emotions that this time has brought out of all of us.
Mendó was written and recorded from Cuba's home in Smithers, BC, though he was "dedicated to virtually reaching as far and wide as possible."
Included on the album are the recent singles "Hablando x Hablar" and "Mundo Nuevo" with Lila Downs. You can hear both of those tracks below.
