Abra is back. The singer-songwriter / producer’s first single for the new Polo Grounds Music / RCA label is called “Unlock It” and contains a verse by Playboi Carti. Below, listen to the latest song from the two Awful Records alumni, produced by Abra and Boys Noize.
“Unlock It means so much to me for more reasons than I can count, and as someone who is very sentimental and nostalgic, it really is a blessing to unlock the next stage of my career with a friend,” Abra said in a Statement. “I’ve always been so proud of what Carti has achieved, and the happiness of getting back together with him for this song especially feels like a trophy for what the song is about – an endorsement for the long, winding one Trip that it took to get here and I feel a little more at home in this crazy new world I’m about to step into! “
Abra’s only studio album, Rose, was released in 2015 and reissued on vinyl in 2017. She worked with Tiga and Hudson Mohawke on the song “VSOD (Velvet Sky of Dreams)” last year and also made a guest appearance on Bad Bunny’s El Último Tour Del Mundo album.
