Experimental pop and r&b singer D∆WN (aka Dawn Richard) released the deluxe version of her acclaimed 2016 album, Redemption, on Friday. In addition to previously heard tracks, the deluxe version also includes two new tracks–"Hurricane" and "Van Gogh"–produced by Richard and her frequent collaborator Machinedrum.
"Hurricane" starts with a simple synth beat, tropical-like drums and finger snaps. The track stays steady throughout despite its off-kilter structures and Richard's now-signature vocal manipulations.
In contrast, "Van Gogh," is a departure from Richard's past music, especially the dance-forward production of Redemption. The track features acoustic-like guitars paired with Richard's soft, light melodies and progresses into spindly synths.
Redemption (Deluxe edition) is available on CD and digitally. Stream "Hurricane" and "Van Gogh" below.
