OUT NOW: Amaarae - THE ANGEL YOU DON'T KNOW
THE ANGEL YOU DON’T KNOW is the debut album by Amaarae, out now on vinyl via NTS.
Raised across multiple cities, Amaarae’s music reflects a life split between New Jersey, Atlanta and Accra. As indebted to raw Southern rap as it is dancehall, her work also holds echoes of glossy mall rock and bubblegum pop. Whilst working on the record, Amaarae’s reference points ranged from Paul Wall to Meat Puppets, reflected in the kaleidoscopic vision of the album, effortlessly jumping from the country trap of FANCY to an Afro-house comedown in 3AM.
The vinyl release of TAYDK is packaged in a UV gloss gatefold sleeve with double-sided poster insert. Full tracklist below, which also features an exclusive and previously unreleased remix of FANCY with rap royalty Bree Runway.
