As a treat for the Hearts, Dawn Richard has released a new track called “On A String” for free download. The stripped down record, produced by longtime collaborator Druski finds Dawn singing about no longer being a puppet in her lover’s game. “Gave me a stage but you stole the lead, said I’d be much better behind the scenes, on a string, I’m off your string.”
In additional news, to hold the hearts over until Goldenheart arrives on January 15th, Dawn is prepping to release a Christmas EP, yet to be titled, around the first week of December.
“The Hearts asked if we were going to do another record like December Sky for Christmas,” says Dawn. “Drew and I thought why not do an entire EP? It’ll be Christmas records but don’t expect ‘Chestnuts On An Open Fire’. It’s not a traditional Christmas album at all.”
