“A movement to bring pioneering Black women in electronic music to the forefront.”

Dawn Richard is releasing a new album, called Second Line, via Merge Records this April.

Across Second Line Richard brings together elements of r’n’b with footwork and house; as she explains, “I am the genre.”

The album also functions as “a movement to bring pioneering Black women in electronic music to the forefront.”

“You never see women appreciated as producers and artists alike, especially Black women in the electronic space. The time is now for us to start recognizing their talent, not only in electronic music but in all genres.”

Second Line follows her new breed album, which was released on Local Action/Our Dawn Ent.
