“When we think of New Orleans, we think of jazz, soul, R&B. We don’t think of electronic, dance, and pop. It’s all I’ve ever known and what I wanted to expose the world to, through the lens of New Orleans,” Richard told MTV News. “I’m hoping that through this album, you’ll start to see the celebration of artists not being celebrated by the color of their skin or the genre that we choose to box them in, but rather by the talent and the art that they expose to the world.”

Today it was announced that the multi-talented Dawn Richard has signed a new deal with Merge Records. After a few LP’s and EP’s releases with the Local Action label, the New Orleans artist will release her next full-length on Merge worldwide in 2021.

I set out a long time ago to create a lane where genre was optional. Where a Black woman could thrive in electropop and Afrofuturism unapologetically. This record has been such a cathartic experience. To create an immersive story highlighting New Orleans culture through a futuristic lens has just been… a wild-ass ride. I’m stoked to take the wild ride with Merge, and hopefully the world wants to jump on, too. I plan to reshape the way people see and hear New Orleans. Hope you ready? Said Dawn when talking about her new label deal.

While touring with her bandmates of Danity Kane, Dawn hasn’t given up on her solo efforts. Today the NOLA singer announced her new project dropping Jan 25th. With the announcement made via Twitter, Dawn also surprised her fans as she released the project first single ” New Breed.”

While premiering the new song Dawn talked about the influence of her new LP, “it’s been 3 years since I’ve released the heart trilogy. I debated about putting out another project because being indie is not easy. I went back home to New Orleans and realized how much this city has shaped me into the woman I am and how much I missed the girl I was before the industry shit. New Orleans has been so much more than just a city for me. So here is a small project about what it means to be a ninth ward girl from jonlee before the industry shit.
