23 March 2021, 11:13 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Dawn Richard is back with new cut "Jacuzzi", which arrives as a third taster of her upcoming album Second Line.

"Jacuzzi" follows earlier singles "Pilot (a lude)" and "Bussifame", and opens with a clip of Richard interviewing her own mother about her Creole heritage.

Richard told FLAUNT of the accompanying video, "The visual is a celebration of body positivity, that femininity and sexuality can be in any body form. What a mother moves like will be different from a young woman with no kids in the prime of her 20s. Doesn’t make her less sexy. Stretch marks, curves, blemishes, and imperfections are seen throughout the simulation. We chose to leave those unedited to showcase the beauty in the everyday woman unfiltered."

Second Line will follow Richard's 2019 album new breed, and will mark her first album since signing to Merge Records in January.

According to Brooklyn Vegan, Richard describes her new album as "a movement to bring pioneering Black women in electronic music to the forefront", and added, "You never see women appreciated as producers and artists alike - especially Black women in the electronic space. The time is now for us to start recognising their talent, not only in electronic music but in all genres. I wanna be the reason why a young Black girl from the South can be whoever she wants to be musically, visually, and artistically."

"Jacuzzi" is out now. Dawn Richard's Second Line album will land 30 April via Merge, and is available to pre-order now.
