Widely respected for her fearless musical fusions of Latin Alternative Rock with a retro style and multi-genre influences. Mon Laferte recently surprised fans with the November 9th release her new album “Norma” (Spotify – Apple Music), which finds her reverting to her given first name for a personal passion project experimenting with many of Latin music’s most beloved dance styles. To further inspire a classic feel to the 10 song set, Mon Laferte choose to record these feverish single take tracks of cumbia, salsa, Mambo and more in the hallowed space of Los Angeles’ famed Capitol Studios which was a preferred home of Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Ray Charles and more.
“Mon Laferte’s ‘ Norma’ is an unexpected masterpiece, temporarily trading the artist’s cinematic pseudonym for her birth name. The album, recorded in one hour ‘a lo Sinatra’ at Los Angeles’ historic Capitol Records Studios, is her most cohesive yet, comprising 10 songs that experiment with a host of classical genres from cumbia to salsa to cha cha cha. [First single] ‘El Mambo’ begins with the singer murmuring spoken lyrics over classical Cuban piano, bubbling under the surface until the pot boils over in the chorus: ‘Tú tienes celos!’ she sings as the mambo erupts. Chronicling the manic rise and descent of the kind of passionate affair the Norma on the album cover might have, all wild-haired, shirt unbuttoned, and crying over a sliced onion, Norma is a feverish success.” – NPR Music
