We hadn’t heard much from Camp Rye Rye since the release of her Robyn-sampling hit ‘Never Will Be Mine’ in the middle of last year, but an email we received from Sweden this morning suggests that the release of the 21 year old singer/rapper’s debut album is approaching – and fast.
Signed to M.I.A’s label N.E.E.T, Rye Rye has slowly been building a dedicated following across the past 12 months, but her fans have been patiently awaiting news of an album release.
Said album is entitled ‘Go! Pop! Bang!’ and is being readied for a European release in the middle of May. What this means for Australia, where her single ‘Boom Boom’ dropped at digital retail last Friday, we’re yet to learn, but there’s no denying the LP release has the singer bubbling.
“I’m super excited about my album finally coming out jumping for joy!,” she said in a statement. “‘Go! Pop! Bang!’ feels like a breath of fresh air and you guys can expect some booty popping, heavy bass, fun and tight rhymes over massive beats!”
‘Go! Pop! Bang!’ is released in Sweden on Monday May 14. No word yet on a local release.
UPDATE 2:25PM AEDT : ‘Go! Pop! Bang!’ has been confirmed for Australia – released on Friday May 18.
