Dawn Richard

After spending 2022 delving into the lush, neoclassical avant-jazz soundscapes ofPigments, her critically acclaimed collaborative record with Spencer Zahn, Dawn Richard returns her visionary eye to kaleidoscopic, genre-straddling pop music with“Bubblegum,”a standalone single that arrives worldwide April 12, 2023, on Merge Records.

As a founding member of Danity Kane, and later with Diddy’s Dirty Money, Richard has explored the ins and outs of commercial pop music. As a solo artist, she opted to self-release her music; over the span of six critically acclaimed full-length albums, she treats Louisiana Creole culture, NewOrleans bounce, andSouthern Swag as elemental, allowing her to weave in and out of house, footwork, R&B, and more. As she proudly proclaimed onSecond Line: “I am the genre.” Her most recent album,Pigments, a collaboration with multi-instrumentalist and producer Spencer Zahn, is an orchestral fusion of neoclassical, ambient, and jazz that has received much praise since its October 2022 release.
