Los Angeles DJ / producer RL Grime announces his new album, NOVA, slated for release July 27 via WEDIDIT Records. In celebration, he shares his roaring new single "Undo" ft. Jeremih & Tory Lanez.

The announce comes at the heels of NOVA's first single, "I Wanna Know" ft. Daya, which marks his first Top 10 US Dance Radio Record. "I Wanna Know" has amassed over 15 million plays globally to date, and broke at 1# on iTunes Electronic in the US, Australia, and New Zealand.
