Sudan Archives has announced her much-anticipated sophomore album, Natural Brown Prom Queen, due September 9 via Stones Throw (pre-order). The announcement reads:

Fittingly for a record named for a homecoming event, Natural Brown Prom Queen is all about home – both Sudan’s adopted hometown of L.A. and Cincinnati, where she was raised. The album takes in themes of race, womanhood, and the fiercely loyal, loving relationships at the heart of Sudan's life with her family, friends, and partner. Over 18 tracks, Sudan gets into character as Britt, the girl next door from Cincinnati who drives around the city with the top down and shows up to high-school prom in a pink furry bikini with her thong hanging out her denim skirt.

The album includes her recently released singles "Home Maker," "Selfish Soul," and "NBPQ (Topless)," and if you haven't heard those yet, you can check out all three alongside the album's tracklist below.

Sudan Archives also has a international tour coming up, including a show at Brooklyn's Elsewhere Hall on October 12. All dates are listed below.
