D∆WN, aka Dawn Richard, has long been one of the most prolific artists in the contemporary pop landscape and yesterday she released her best, most compelling work to date with REDEMPTION via Local Action / Our Dawn Entertainment. Largely produced by MachineDrum and D∆WN, it’s her most powerful creation as she expands on her boundless, future-focused electronic sound to create a highly infectious body of work. It’s the last instalment in the trilogy that includes her critically-acclaimed albums Goldenheart and Blackheart, the latter of which was ranked as one of 2015’s best albums by Pitchfork, FACT, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Stereogum, The FADER, Spin and many more. Foremost, it’s a coming of age for Dawn where she delves into her relationship with the music industry and speaks to today’s current events with messages about race issues, gender inequality, self-love, and female empowerment. With this project, D∆WN proves she’s a force to be reckoned with by challenging social norms and putting forth a masterpiece set to transcend time.

The album is available as a digital release, vinyl and a special USB necklace designed by D∆WN that features a digital lyric book, VR content, exclusive photography and more – photo below. For more info visit: dawnrichard.net.
