What was intended to be an album release showcase, turned out to be useful promotion for Goldenheart and proof that Dawn Richard is one of the industry’s best blooming acts.
At SOB’s in New York City, Richard brought the star power as she delivered a few of her notables, including “Bombs Away,” “86,” and brand new record, “In Your Eyes“.
“In Your Eyes”
Dawn Richard explains to SingersRoom why Goldenheart is “modern-day Joan of Arc” love story,
“It’s a journey of a message. You look at the story of Joan of Arc and what she was, that’s more religious and it was a battle for her, but it’s more the story of her having a message that she felt she needed to carry through, that she went about it by any means necessary, and it was almost borderline madness; she didn’t know if she was crazy, or if she really did have a message. To me, that’s the story of passion; you’re fighting for something beyond what you can even explain to people. And the only way to explain it is by saying, “I have something that I have to teach you, and I’m not retreating until you understand that this is important. And that’s exactly what this message is with this album, from the lyrical content, to the visual, to the dance artistry of it all.”
Goldenheart is slated to drop just after the holidays on January 15th via Alvatoz Distribution.
