RL Grime Shares Long Awaited & Highly Anticipated New Album ‘NOVA’

rl grime nova

There are few artists that can build up as much release hype as RL Grime. With the trap heavyweight having released numerous singles since announcing his sophomore album back in May of last year, we’ve been patiently waiting for what very well may be one of the biggest electronic releases of 2018. Now, the wait is over as RL has finally dropped his brand new album NOVA.

"I spent a lot of 2015-2017 depressed, anxious, and unmotivated. The music I was making for NOVA reflected that; it felt melancholy, but still hopeful... I wanted my music to emerge from that darkness, but not to abandon the feelings that had shaped the project in the first place." - RL Grime

RL Grime definitely didn’t disappoint with this latest offering. Upon first listen it’s very apparent that a great deal of time and thought went into every second of NOVA. Although we’re already familiar with the album’s previously released singles “Reims”, “Era”, “I Wanna Know”, “Undo”, “Pressure” and “Light Me Up”, throughout the rest of the LP’s 15, from bass music to hip-hop to future bass, RL takes inspiration from all over the electronic music spectrum switching things up from his trap roots on much of the project.

Although we noticed that “Stay For It” with Miguel was left off the album (as it was probably beat out by “Light Me Up”), RL has tapped heavy-hitters Ty Dolla $ign, Joji, Chief Keef, 24hrs, Jeremy Zucker and more to complete this incredibly cohesive and absolutely unforgettable project. Check out RL Grime’s new album NOVA below and enjoy!

RL Grime Shares Another Single "Light Me Up" Ft. Miguel & Julia Michaels Off Highly Anticipated 'NOVA' Album

RL Grime

With RL Grime’s highly anticipated forthcoming album NOVA on the way, we’ve been impatiently awaiting the full project due this Friday Jul. 25. Ahead of the full release, we’ve been blessed with yet another single “Light Me Up” featuring his past “Stay For It” collaborator Miguel as well as Julia Michaels.

While RL Grime has been a king of Trap since his beginning, he’s been exploring new realms on this project and further taps into the pop world on this new release. With songs like “Pressure,” “Undo,” and “Era” maintaining his early trap sound, he’s recruited vocalists on “I Wanna Know,” “Stay For It,” and now “Light Me Up” taking a more hybrid Future Bass / Trap direction. Stay tuned for the full album on Friday and enjoy!

RL Grime Drops Must Hear Sinister Trap Banger "Pressure"

rl grime 2018

RL Grime just dropped a trap banger called “Pressure” off of his upcoming album NOVA coming out on July 27. The track made waves when it appeared on the 2017 edition of RL’s annual Halloween mix and since then has been a staple of RL’s stunning live show and even featured in an Apple commercial. RL’s album releases so far have been diverse, from his vibrant melodic single “I Wanna Know” ft. Daya to his hip-hop influenced track “Undo” with Jeremih and Torey Lanez but “Pressure” shows that he’s not done with his signature heavy-hitting trap sound. 

“Pressure” begins with a stuttering bass pluck backed by an ominous, droning synth and punctuated by horns. Suspense builds as background synths layer on top of accelerating bass kicks, all of which collapse into four snare hits, a laughing vocal sample, and an explosion of siren-like synths and rumbling bass. The track keeps the dark energy going throughout, adding screeching leads and stutter beats to the second drop for a fresh take. Enjoy!
