Earlier this year, Dawn Richard caught a lot of people’s attention with her Armor On EP – we loved it - and yesterday, a new song called ‘Pretty Wicked Things’ premiered to begin the campaign towards her new album Goldenheart. As Dawn explains:
“Goldenheart is the fusing of new sounds with R&B/soul. We are introducing the setup to Goldenheart with the release of ‘Pretty Wicked Things’. This isn’t a single. It’s a setup. We have a lot of surprises for the hearts. Grow with us.”
‘Pretty Wicked Things’ was produced and co-written with Armor On collaborator Druski and brings dance and electronica elements to a more straightforward R&B melody and structure, a bit like previous tracks ‘Black Lipstick’ and ‘Faith’. In fact, ‘Pretty Wicked Things’ works a lot like ‘Faith’ as it takes up something that has become fairly ubiquitous recently – the EDM drop/wobble here – and makes it new, strange and unique. Take a listen below, it’s streaming via Rap-Up, and it’s available to buy at iTunes.
