Single Cover: Dawn Richard – ‘Valkyrie’

Valkyrie

Just days after revealing the cover art for “Judith,” Dawn Richard unveils the artwork for “Valkyrie.” The singer rocks gold antlers and a gold mask on her head in the striking image, photographed by Solmaz Saberi.

Dawn held an online contest for her fans to choose between “Judith” and “Valkyrie” as the new single off her upcoming sophomore album Blackheart. “Valkyrie” was written by Dawn and produced by Noisecastle III.

“I wanted a record that was packed with confidence, a sort of cocky reminder that you will remember my mark,” said Dawn. “In Norse mythology, valkyries also known as choosers of the fallen, decided the fate of soldiers in battle once they died.”

“I thought the impression and mark they left on a soldier’s life was incredible,” she explained. “‘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.”

Dawn will reveal the winning song on iTunes on August 19.

In the midst of reunion rumors, Danity Kane’s official website has been updated to show a countdown, which ends on August 25 at 9 p.m. EST, the same day and time as the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. Will the girls reunite at the VMAs?

    @C, Rochus Misch, 91, who still lives in Berlin was at Hitler’s side from 1940 to 1945 and was with the Fuhrer in his bunker in the last days of his life.
    Screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie interviewed him as part of research for the film Valkyrie.
    But Cruise told the Los Angeles Times: “I didn’t want to meet him. Evil is still evil, I don’t care how old you are.”

    ANY PERSON WHO IS A CHRISTIAN KNOWS THAT GOD HIMSELF CHOOSES HEAVEN OR HELL FOR THE DEAD. FOR THIS LOW DOWN DIRTY WOMAN TO SUGGEST THAT ANYONE OTHER THAN GOD HIMSELF DECIDES THE FATE OF THE DEAD IS EVIL, AND I PRAY THAT OUR KIDS WILL IGNORE THIS DEVIL WORSHIPPING MESS. PEOPLE OF HAITIAN DESCENT IN AMERCICA ARE MAKING THEIR MARK, AND IT SICKENS ME.

    @B, Since you had to ask me that, I doubt you will get my point. The small case letters are from an article. My opinion is separated with caps to distinguish it from the article.

    @diane, I do not see why it matters what decent she comes from or what her beliefs may be. The same way you came to read about this you could have turned away from it and passed it off as something you’re personally not into. Oh and who are you to say she actually worships the devil ? Just because she doesn’t follow the same belief system as yourself. Welcome to the real world. Everyone isn’t like you and you’re not like everyone else. Which is the beauty of it all.

    She’s really smart and creative with her music. I just can’t listen to a full album of hers.

    I’m so excited I can’t believe a reunion might be in store. D Woods still has to much pride.

    That is a hot pic! But who is funding her project? She stays with new stuff but is making no noise.

    I Love Dawn’s approach when it comes to her artistry, she’s very eccentric “In A Good Way”..

    @diane for you to make a statement like,

    “PEOPLE OF HAITIAN DESCENT IN AMERCICA ARE MAKING THEIR MARK, AND IT SICKENS ME.”

    Sickens me & I’m sure other readers. Take your hate somewhere else.

    And who said anything about being Christian? I could’ve swore the quote said that “in Norse mythology.”

    I am sorry, but this whole concept is strange and creepy to me. It does not sit well with my spirit. I liked her music, but I can not cosign this one from Dawn. She has lost me with this one. That is my opinion.
