Richard takes a darker approach on the slow-brewing “Judith,” produced by Cronos, which was inspired by the Gustav Klimt painting “Judith.”
“It’s the story of a painting that is priceless and quite iconic being forgotten after being hung in a home too long,” Dawn said. “People tend to forget the worth of things after they’ve had them for a long time. ’Judith’ simply reminds her spectators of her worth.”
The Diddy-Dirty Money alum adds some bounce to the mix on the Deonte-assisted “Valkyrie,” produced by Noisecastle III.
“I wanted a record that was packed with confidence, a sort of cocky reminder that you will remember my mark,” she explained. “In Norse mythology, Valkyries also known as choosers of the fallen, decided the fate of soldiers in battle once they died. ‘In the end you will remember me’ is what I felt they said as they chose the soldier’s fate. I want to leave the same imprint with my art and my music. In the artwork, the horns signify the bravery, strength, and power that existed in the Valkyries.”
