Dawn Richard shares high-energy new song “Bubblegum”
After releasing the gorgeous Pigments last year with collaborator Spencer Zahn, Dawn Richard has returned with a new single. “Bubblegum” is a return to high-energy electronic pop music with a hot-pink music video. Check it out below. Also take a look at her upcoming live dates, including a performance of Pigments at the Bang on a Can Festival in Brooklyn.
“Leaning back into the Electro Revival era, I wanted to remind people that King Creole is just getting started,” Richard said in a press release. “The preface to the second installment of the Electro Revival, ‘Bubblegum’ is a cocky candy-coated conundrum. Full of sass that only a New Orleans King can have, this yummy multi-genre single is just a taste of whatʼs to come.”
Pigments is on our list of the 50 Best Albums of 2022.
