Toronto, Cada singer/songwriter Jon Stancer has confirmed the forthcoming release of his new EP, titled In Light Of, in early 2022 and, today, has debuted the lead single and its video, “This Cannot Wait (Until Tomorrow).”

Commenting on the song and video, Stancer shares, “The intent was to juxtapose the earth’s beauty with the ugliness of what’s happening to it, and to recognize humanity’s role in its deterioration. It turned out a sort of dreamy, if not slightly eerie public service announcement, which may have been unavoidable, as the track has a very focused, very grand and very stark message. Like any video, there was an aim to make it visually compelling, but there was an added ambition, which was to inspire awe as well as outrage.”

The upcoming album was co-produced by Stancer and Dan Kurtz (ex-Dragonette/theNewDeal), and includes appearances by Kurtz, and musicians, Hawksley Workman and Sam Alison (aka Lotus Wight).
