Today the California Chanteuse, R&B sensation, singer/songwriter Paloma Ford announces August 7th as the official release date for her highly anticipated, new body-of-work X Tapes. The rapturous announcement is backed with the unveiling of the project’s official cover art, creatively directed by Paloma, as she channels nostalgic sentiments tied to the direction of the overall project. More on this theme for X Tapes, Paloma says:
“Being an R&B artist in today’s climate you feel the pressure to switch up your sound to make it fit the market. But X Tapes was all about staying true to myself. I try to keep it as raw as possible. You’re going to feel those familiar R&B influences that inspire me, as well as fresh sounds and tempos that are Paloma Ford”.
X Tapes is heralded by the heartfelt R&B ballad “Nights I Cry,” and the accompanying official visual, praised by LA Weekly, ThisisRnB, HNHH and more, capturing a smooth, laid-back California vibe to match the single’s sultry sound. Her track “Rain,” which premiered on Complex, and led as the introduction track for X Tapes, as well as the emotive live acoustic performance experience for “Chome” In My Feelings Version” will also feature on the project. X Tapes serves as follow up to Paloma’s 2016 Nearly Civilized EP, supported by an array of standout singles: “W.E.T.” [2.4 million Spotify streams], “Hit Of You” [1.6 million Spotify streams], and “Jada” [1.6 Million Spotify streams].
