Ivan Cornejo Announces New Album ‘MIRADA’ Releasing July 18

Mexican-American singer-songwriter Ivan Cornejo, known for his heartfelt music and strong connection with fans, has announced the release of his new album ‘MIRADA’. Set to drop on July 18 via Zaragoza Records and Interscope Records, the album marks an exciting new phase in his career.

An Evolution in Sound

In an exclusive interview with Rolling Stone, Cornejo shared, “My new album represents an exciting evolution, and growth of my musical journey. Each track has a blend of my signature style but with a fresh sound that pushes the boundaries of my art.”

Upcoming Performances

Following his co-headlining performance at the Sueños Festival in Chicago, Ivan is set to take the stage at Milwaukee Summerfest on July 6 and Quebec City’s Festival d’été on July 13. These performances come on the heels of a record-breaking show earlier this year at Rodeo Houston, where he performed to a sold-out stadium of 72,000 people. Reflecting on this experience, Ivan said, “That was the most shaky I’ve ever been during a show. It was a great feeling, but I could also hear my heart pounding.”

Rising Star with a Bicultural Appeal

Ivan Cornejo’s music, a sophisticated blend of sad sierreño roots and hazy alternative-rock vibes, resonates deeply with young listeners. His bicultural sensibility and quiet demeanor, combined with his emotional honesty, have garnered him a devoted fan base. With over 1.6 billion combined streams, he is currently the second most consumed música mexicana artist in the U.S. and ranks in the top 10 in the overall Latin market.

Latest Single "Baby Please"

Cornejo’s latest single, "Baby Please," showcases his mature musical instincts and emotional depth. The song is a plea for a second chance in love, filled with poignant lyrics and a raw vocal delivery. The accompanying video features him performing on a lonely stage, surrounded by darkness, adding to the song’s emotional weight.

Career Milestones

2023 has been a milestone year for Cornejo. He completed a 46-show tour with performances at notable festivals like Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits. He also shattered the record for the most tickets sold by a Latin artist at the Toyota Arena in Ontario, CA, a record previously held by Vicente Fernandez. His singles “Aquí Te Espero” and “Donde Estas” have amassed over 145 million streams combined. Signing with Interscope Records has further solidified his position as a rising star in the music industry.

Looking Forward

With the release of ‘MIRADA’ and his upcoming performances, Ivan Cornejo continues to capture the hearts of listeners with his unique sound and sincere lyrics. As he evolves as an artist, his music remains a powerful voice for his generation. Keep an eye out for the release of ‘MIRADA’ on July 18 and catch Ivan Cornejo live at his upcoming shows.
