Lorely Rodriguez, better known as Empress Of, is releasing a new album. Her sophomore release is titled Us, as she revealed in a social media post, and it’s out October 19.
“It’s been a long two and a half years making this project,” she writes. “I can’t believe today I get to tell you it’s done and yours soon.”
Earlier this year she released the new single, “Trust Me Baby/In Dreams,” which is presumably included on the album. However, she also says that a new track will be revealed tomorrow. Rodriguez’s last album was 2015’s Me. (Note the title theme here.) Rodriguez also appeared on Blood Orange’s album Freetown Sound in 2016, lending her vocals to “Best to You.” Listen to “Trust Me Baby/In Dreams” below.
