R&B singer Dawn Richard, who released the solid GoldenHeart earlier this year, is playing a few shows in the Northeast this spring/summer including two in NYC. The first is a headlining gig on May 28 at Gramercy Theatre. Tickets for that one are on sale now. Then, she'll do a "special performance" at a 2013 NYC Pride event, which talk show host Wendy Williams is hosting, on June 29 at Hammerstein Ballroom. Tickets for that are on sale now too.
Dawn recently released the official remix for GoldenHeart track "Northern Lights." The remix features a new guest verse from Eve, and you can stream it below. Eve hasn't released an album in over ten years, but she's set to change that this month with Lip Lock, which is due out on May 14. Dawn will repay the favor by contributing vocals to a track on that album (which Missy Elliot, Snoop Dogg, Juicy J, Pusha T, and others also feature on). Eve just went H.A.M. on a new single from that album, "EVE," for which a video just came out this week. You can watch it below.

R&B singer Dawn Richard was formerly a member the mid-2000s Bad Boy Records-signed all-female group Danity Kane, after which she joined Diddy Dirty Money and then began a solo career in 2011 which led to 2012's Armor On, one of the most overlooked but great EPs of last year. The EP harnessed dark multi-layered production that pulled from Afro-centric polyrhythms, minimal late night sensuality, and radio appeal, and showed Dawn growing as an increasingly versatile singer. If you haven't yet, you can watch the video for EP track, "Bombs," below.
Dawn followed that EP last month (December) with the Whiteout EP and is now set to release a full length, GoldenHeart on January 15. Dawn just revealed snippets from the new album and you can stream those and check out the tracklist below. That's the cover art above. The album features production from Druski (who worked on Armor On), Fisticuffs (who worked with Miguel on his great Kaleidoscope Dream), and Denote. You can pre-order it now.
Dawn has a few dates scheduled (and is promising more) including one in NYC two days after the album release, January 17 at SOB's with Bridget Kelly and Aaron Camper. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
