The Montreal singer-songwriter launched his first single this week.

Montreal singer-songwriter Alex Nicol has dropped his debut single “And I Wonder” ahead of the March 13 release of his debut album All For Nada on Michel Records & Anniversary.

Nicol had this to say to Toronto’s Indie88:

“In the song I develop from a confused young boy who thinks that channeling energy into aggression is the best way to live, to a man who realizes that channeling energy into love and appreciation is the only way to get through life without breaking down. And that this is true no matter how hard it can be to find love, whether for yourself, your friends, family, partner, kids, etc.”

Before heading to Austin to play SXSW, Alex Nicol will play an album launch show at Ursa (details TBA). For an introduction to his alt-rock/indie folk sound, watch the video for “And I Wonder” here:
