Dawn Richard has released the her new song, ”86′, just a day ahead of schedule, much to the delight of her eager fans. Produced by the ever so talented Druski, the track serves as the official lead single from her ‘GoldenHeart’ album, which will be released on October 16th.
”86′ was inspired by the sounds of Prince, Genesis, Cyndi Lauper, Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins but the final product is certainly 100% Dawn. If you haven’t seen the ‘GoldenHeart’ track list then click here and then listen to ”86′ below:
”86′ is a beautiful song but whether it is a strong choice for a lead single is debatable. ‘Bombs’ from Dawn’s ‘Armor On’ EP would have actually been a better selection to launch the ‘GoldenHeart’ project with ”86 serving as the second of a dual release. Regardless, Dawn has yet to drop the ball musically and I am eager to see the videos that she puts forward during this new era of her career!
