Parks N’ Rec is the new project from Canadian singer Marco DiFelice (Supergarage), songwriter, music supervisor (Orphan Black, Lost Girl). In collaboration with several producers at Self Titled Studios, Parks N’ Rec deals with lost love, polarizing societies, and self-renewal.
In May 2021, Marco unveiled an album, Wish I Was Here, recorded in Central and South America. This process of releasing music while abroad is once again at the core of his forthcoming songs.
This fall, DiFelice conceived “the year that everything changed” in New York City, with a nostalgic and epic feel. While a deeply personal song, it taps into the mood and vibration of a whole world, experiencing a shared challenge. The last lyric, ”a blessing and a curse” sums it all up.
Parks N’ Rec shares:
I am telling the story of reflection and acceptance; adaption and redefinition.
After spending nine months in remote parts of Central and South America, I landed in New York City this fall. The shock of that transition combined with witnessing a metropolis hoping for a revival was interesting. I wanted to capture that recalibration of human behaviour, and the beauty of that challenge. You’ll hear a melancholic mood that comes from a place of strength.
