Sudan Archives has announced her new album. Natural Brown Prom Queen is out September 9 via Stones Throw. It features her singles “Home Maker” and “Selfish Soul.” Check out the recently released single “NBPQ (Topless),” a title track of sorts, below.
According to the album’s announcement, it’s an album about home, and specifically, Los Angeles (Sudan Archives’ adopted hometown) and Cincinnati (where she was raised). It’s also an album where she takes on a character called 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.”
Sudan Archives will tour North America this fall.
