Dawn Richard is days away from the release of her sophomore album, Blackheart, the follow up to 2012’s Goldenheart, so to keep the buzz going for the pending opus, she offers up the new track, “Castles.”
Penned by the former Danity Kane member and produced by Swagg R’Celious, the mid-tempo groove sees Dawn being hopeful about love and togetherness as she croons, “Cause we built castles / Castles in the sand / … Please don’t let it fall.”
"I really wanted to prove that I had a story to tell," Dawn told Billboard last year about her upcoming album. “It’s a completely different sound… The story in itself is about my journey throughout the music industry, and the love, the hate, the redemption and the whole thing in between.”
Blackheart will arrive on January 15.
