New Music: Dawn Richard – ‘NLX’

Hot on the heels of her critically-acclaimed debut Goldenheart, Dawn Richard liberates “NLX,” the remix to “Northern Lights.” The all-new production, helmed by D’Mile, appears as a bonus cut on the deluxe edition of the album, available exclusively at FYE.

Unlike the upbeat original, the new version features a subdued beat, with Dawn singing about chasing love, whether it’s wrong or right.

Without backing from a major label, the independent release still managed to debut at No. 10 on Billboard’s R&B Albums chart and No. 2 on the Heatseekers chart.
