The dance-pop globetrotter has a new home.
Paris-raised singer Lafawndah has signed with Warp Records, the label that will release her Tan EP on February 5, 2015. While last year’s self-titled EP was recorded in Guadeloupe, Lafawndah chose to record Tan closer to the New York home, on Fire Island.
“‘Tan’ is the first song I wrote for the EP on Fire Island, with collaborators Nick Weiss and Tamer Fahri,” she tells The FADER. “The title is a nod to Duke Ellington dedicating his musical Jump of Joy ‘to the Suntanned Tenth of the Nation.'”
Watch the self-directed video for ‘Tan’ below; the EP’s cover art and tracklist follow. For more Lafawndah, revisit our interview about the “universal body language” of her debut and listen to her MoMA PS1 Warm-up mix.
