RL Grime's New Album "NOVA" Is Finally Here

Posted at July 30th, 2018 | by Yash Vikram Singh | in Dance Music, Entertainment, Featured, Music, News

RL Grime’s impending album release up until this point can only be recollected as the most anticipated project in Dance Music. It is over 2 years in the making and is certainly something the bass music luminary holds very close to his heart. It is finally out in full and is very feature-laden; Tory Lanez, Jeremih, Ty Dolla $ign, Cheif Keef & more.

 

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. this album was made during a period in my life of growing up and learning how to deal with sadness, and overwhelming stress. i wanted my music to emerge from that darkness, but not to abandon the feelings that had shaped the project in the first place. i wanted to take the sounds that before seemed to emanate from somewhere down below, and bring them up into the skies, and into space. i wanted to find that same sort of power in something light.. ethereal but strong. I know that may sound abstract, but that’s how i can best describe it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ when I’m writing music, i lean heavily on visual inspirations. i like to visualize places and moments in my head and write music that I feel fits there. throughout the process i had this vision of a “nova”, or of a star that begins as nothing but then expands endlessly until its light is all you can see. my vision is for the music to feel like the birth of something new. to start from where VOID left off, but rise up and soar across the sky. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ i dont say this enough but i truly would not be in this position where i’m able to create what I want to without the love and support from you guys. it is a constant motivator and reminder to keep going and continue to challenge myself. So thank you. i hope this album connects with you the way it connected with me.

It is absolutely mesmerizing in its entirety, it paints a story of his life; the personal struggles and conquering the human spirit. It might come off as something y’all didn’t expect from him as he is notorious for delivering bangers; but it’s absolutely true and all the more wholesome. Listen to it below.
