TORONTO, ON - FEBRUARY 16, 2018 - Today, Canadian singer-songwriter Megan Bonnell releases the lead single and title track from her third full-length album, Separate Rooms, due out April 6, 2018 via Cadence Music. Co-written with Donovan Woods, the new song is the mature realization that true love carries with it as much loneliness as it does companionship. Watch and share the brand new video here http://bit.ly/MBSeparateRooms.
"The song Separate Rooms is a realization that relationships are as much about being alone as they are about being together,” says Bonnell. "The song was written in collaboration with Donovan Woods and really tries to celebrate the fact that a healthy, supportive relationship requires the occasional ”time-out” in order to rediscover who we are as individuals.”

Separate Rooms is a collection of 10 songs that explore not only timely themes but is also a bold statement of a self-assured woman navigating an increasingly dark and perplexing world. Bonnell has never been easily pigeon-holed into the predictable mold of the singer-songwriter and Separate Rooms embraces this edict, turning traditional musical genres on their heads. With her hallmark honesty, she effortlessly tackles such intense subject matter as mental illness, early pregnancy loss, and the dissolution of love. But, the new album is also a contradiction - it’s a lover’s appeal for space and independence and, at the same time, a desperate yearning for young and innocent love.
Despite the personal nature of the album’s lyrics, the production of Separate Rooms was a largely collaborative process. Joining the production team of Chris Stringer and Joshua Van Tassel, Bonnell manages to meld anthemic pop appeal with the textured, layered nuances of 70’s new wave, epic alt-rock ballads of the 90’s, and traditional folk craftsmanship. Thematically, Separate Rooms treads even further into difficult emotional territory than her previous records, finding Bonnell at her most vulnerable but also her most courageous. Musically, the album is nuanced and meticulously executed; the cohesive creation of collaborators obsessed with the idea of making something original and important.

What's The Story about Megan Bonnell?
Megan Bonnell is quickly becoming one of Canada’s leading voices as a songwriter, performer, and artist. Her debut album, Hunt and Chase was a whimsical journey of growth from her rural Ontario upbringing to her emergence as one of the most unique voices in Toronto’s established independent music scene. Magnolia, Bonnell’s second release, was a considerably darker and sonically expansive work which painfully and expertly dissected the themes of love, and more importantly, love lost. A two-time Canadian Folk Music Award nominee, Megan has spent the last three years touring Canada, the US, and making groundbreaking debut performances at European festivals including BIME Live Festival in Bilbao, the Barcelona Jazz Festival, and The End Festival in London.
