It's been a battle for Dawn Richard but the singer/song-writer has risen to the top and is set to release her first official studio album GoldenHeart next week (15 January).
The album is 16 tracks and includes singles such as 'Pretty Wicked Things' and '86', in this new album Dawn Richard sings about her journey and breakthrough with the whole music industry and with her success. Read what she had to say below:
"The last six years have been a battle for people to understand and conform me into what they really want me to be and I've kind of had to protect that throughout this whole journey."..."It’s kind of the story of me protecting this GoldenHeart, which really kind of symbolizes my own heart and my passion for this music thing and really who I am."
In early 2012 Dawn released her EP Armor On which went straight to #1 on the iTunes chart and since then everyone has been waiting for her long awaited album to drop. Richard has teamed up with eye-wear designers and twin sisters - Coco and Breezy for a pair of limited edition 'GoldenHeart' eye-wear, as part of their Omrose S/S 2013 look-book.
