Pay very close attention to 19 year old RCA records-signed singer, songwriter Tinashe, as this young artist is set to soar to exospheric heights.

The L.A based former lead singer of teen pop group The Stunners has come into her own this year. After releasing her debut mixtape In Case We Die, a conceptual self-created project put together in 18 days in her bedroom born from heartache and intense love, which received rave reviews and comparisons to artists like The Weeknd and Jhene Aiko, she brings us her latest free release Reverie.

In addition to the beautifully enchanting (and at times haunting) vocals and production that made In Case We Die so appealing, the artist also introduces some new elements and influences to the gumbo that is her soundscape giving us another outstanding audio experience. Read what inspired Reverie and stream/download the project below.

“My second project, “Reverie”, took a turn for the political.

I notice that as the presidential election in the United States draws ever nearer, people become tremendously caught up in the Hollywood drama of it all—- and automatically take on, without much consideration, all of the views and the opinions of “the right or the left”.

…Thus, resulting in a disconnect from our REAL political duties as citizens of this Earth, and a neglect for the true issues human beings around the globe face every single day.

We are so caught up in our media, in our jobs, in our gossip, and in our consuming that we genuinely feel like we don’t have the time or ENERGY to bother ourselves with the tribulations of nations near and far.

This… is a synthetic world many of us live in today— a dream, if you will.

That is the inspiration behind Reverie” -Tinashe
