NEWS PROVIDED BY
London-based critically acclaimed recording artist Rina Sawayama releases latest single LUCID via Dirty Hit taken from her upcoming deluxe album SAWAYAMA: Deluxe Edition out 4th December.
The addictive BloodPop (Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber) produced single marries Rina’s mesmeric vocals with a kaleidoscopic-like dance soundscape making LUCID an instant club classic. Speaking on LUCID: “It’s about living a different life through dreaming, whether it's to be with the dream girl or to be the dream girl. me and lauren aquilina wrote this together on the floor of my tiny rented living room back in early 2018. bloodpop sent us the beat and the melody flowed out so easily that i remember at one point i started hoovering cos i knew this would be easy to write lol. i’ve kept this song secret for 2 years so I’m so excited to finally release it to the world ! 2020's been a tough year so I wanted to finish it off with a dance bop to take us into a more hopeful 2021 ❤”
The deluxe album is an extension of Rina’s most personal body of work yet, featuring fan favourites XS ft Bree Runway, Comme Des Garons (Like The Boys) - Pabllo Vittar Remix and cover The 1975’s Love it If We Made It alongside previously unreleased tracks; We Out Here which highlights resilience and being true to yourself whilst Bees & Honey serves future nostalgia and emphasises the need to celebrate hard work. The deluxe album will feature production from the likes of Clarence Clarity (Exec producer along with Rina) and co-write from Nicole Morier (Britney Spears) and Kyle Shearer (Carly Rae Jepsen).
LUCID follows Rina Sawayama's debut late night TV performance of her hit single "XS" on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon as well as the announcement of her biggest show to date at London’s Roundhouse in November 2021. SAWAYAMA has been lauded as “An audacious album from one of the boldest voices in pop...” by the Independent and “An honest genre-exploding self-portrait.” by NME. SAWAYAMA is an intimate look into Rina's world. The album was hailed No.3 in Rough Trade’s Albums of the Year whilst also featuring in BBC’s Albums of the Year.
