In the wake of her critically acclaimed, self-released debut album, GoldenHeart,Dawn Richard has just released the first single to be taken from her highly anticipated follow-up BlackHeart, entitled “Meteors.”
Produced by Hakan Özkan, the track opens with a steadily paced low-frequency bass line before a machine-gun drum beat enters the frame, taking it into club territory. Meanwhile, over the dance-fuelled backing, Richard, a former member of the P Diddy reality girl-group Danity Kane as well as Diddy-Dirty Money, sings and manipulates a minimal vocal echo of ‘your love is coming down like meteors‘.
The track could not be more timely, referencing The Weeknd‘s aesthetic and Diplo‘s recent production for Usher, it should be a solid fixture on set lists and remixes for this summer. Available to download from iTunes now, have a listen to “Meteors” below and stay tuned for her new album, due for release on August 7th.
