Her self-released Blackheart album (2015) was FACT’s album of that year and also featured in best of the year charts by Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Vogue, Spin, Elle, Noisey and The Guardian, while 2016’s Redemption - released through the Local Action label - saw DAWN go one better, charting in the Billboard Dance top 5 and featuring high in end of year lists from SPIN, Rolling Stone, LA Times and more.

new breed ’s cultural and historical bent adds a welcome new fold to Richard’s music.

New Breed is "the most intimate portrait of DAWN's life so far," says the label, "harking back to her years growing up in New Orleans and paying tribute to the city's culture, sights and sounds. The album, which blends her electronic production style with more traditional R&B, is mostly self-produced, with contributions from Hudson Mohawke, Cole . N and Kaveh Rastegar. The record follows a trilogy of LPs that ended with 2016's Redemption. For more on Richard, who is also a founding member of Danity Kane, check out our interview here  . ZOOSPA, out in May, features Dawn Richard, Mykki Blanco, Rochelle Jordan and more.

And Dawn Richard’s new breed, the most interesting album of the year so far, serves as a hint that that trend will carry on into 2019. Something is happening in western society, things are changing, and women are at the forefront of it in both politics and art. In many ways, new breed can be compared to Janelle Monáe’s Dirty Computer from last year. They both come from an artist who has managed to achieve critical acclaim for experimentalism over the years but hasn’t reached a mass audience yet. They’re both concept albums with a vague narrative thread.

Album · 2019 · 10 Songs. In her previous solo work, Richard has imagined dystopian battlegrounds and rendered herself as something of an Afrofuturist Joan of Arc, but new breed opens with something closer to home: She’s just a girl from the Nine. That would be the Ninth Ward of New Orleans, where Richard descended from a local tribe identifying as sovereign black Native Americans (the Washitaw Nation), and where Hurricane Katrina once destroyed her family’s home. new breed is a celebration of her city’s cultural legacy, suffused with warmth and underdog resilience: I know that we ain’t polished, but that

A trilogy of expansive albums plus a crop of intermediary releases and featured appearances did not deplete Dawn Richard's reserve

Redemption serves as the final chapter in a trilogy that includes 2013's Goldenheart and 2015's Blackheart. The album features contributions from Noisecastle III as well as New Orleans natives Trombone Shorty and PJ Morton.
