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.

DΔWN is taking a stand for whats right as she calls for gender equal pay on her new track WAVES.

“I promised that I would release new music when I had shit to say,” DAWN wrote. “This is for every woman underpaid, underappreciated, undervalued and undermined… the underdog. ‘get cocky wit yo wave.’” Said DΔWN as she released the track via Twitter.

I really enjoyed this song! DΔWN has always been that artists who continues to evelove musicallly and isn’t afraid to try new sounds. With this new song WAVES  I feel this is the lane she should continue to go with her music. It has everthing that we love about DΔWN’s sound yet, it also has that mainstram appeal that could take DΔWN’s Indie career to the next level.
