(New York, NY): Priscilla Renea's new album "Coloured" is now streaming via NPR First Listen. Out June 22 via Thirty Tigers, the album dissolves boundaries between country, R&B, soul, folk and roots, for a "truly one-of-a-kind, progressive sound" (Taste of Country) that Priscilla calls "a gumbo of pop, dirt road country and urban, mixed together with a keen sense of contemporary politics and millennial perspective."
Stream "Coloured" in full here via NPR.
Yesterday, via Noisey, Priscilla shared the album's intense closing track "Land of the Free." "A heartbreaking song that examines what it is to be black in America" (Noisey), Priscilla's statement on being a person of color in twenty-first century America closes "Coloured" on a staggering note.
Priscilla's singular sound caught the eye of Rolling Stone Country, who named Priscilla an "Artist You Need To Know," describing her as: "Roots-inspired soul-pop that finds the heavenly middle ground between Music Row and Mariah Carey."
In addition to her solo career, Priscilla is also a prolific, award-winning songwriter, and has penned hits for artists like Rihanna, Kesha, Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Mary J. Blige, Madonna, Demi Lovato, and many others. Her credits include: Pitbull and Kesha's No. 1 "Timber," Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood's Country No. 1 "Somethin' Bad," Rihanna's "California King Bed," Fifth Harmony's "Worth It," Chris Brown's "Don't Wake Me Up" and Mary J. Blige's "Don't Mind."
