Lafawndah's debut album is on the way. ANCESTOR BOY, set to arrive on the Egyptian-Iranian artist's label CONCORDIA, was written between Los Angeles, Mexico City, New York, London and Paris. As such, the theme behind the pop and club album is "freedom of movement. Lafawndah released her first, self-titled EP via Warp Records in 2014.
Ancestor Boy follows the TAN EP, the artist’s debut release for Warp, her stunning collaboration with Japanese percussionist Midori Takada Le Renard Bleu, as well as two volumes of her Honey Colony mixtape series and an accompanying live show at London’s Southbank Centre. Check out the album artwork and tracklist below. Tracklist: 01. ‘Uniform’ 02. ‘Daddy’ 03. ‘Parallel’ 04. ‘Ancestor Boy’ 05. ‘Storm Chaser’ 06. ‘Vous Et Nous’ 07. ‘Waterwork’ 08. ‘Substancia’ 09. ‘Joseph’ 10. ‘Oasis’ 11.
Released on Lafawndah’s Concordia imprint, Ancestor Boy is intended as a blueprint for wayward artists. The idea is to create a home for all the orphans of the world, she has said. All the artists that don’t sit properly, that are doing things that are challenging, that are not obeying enough of what’s expected of them. That’s a worthwhile goal, but Lafawndah is no Professor X. Hell, she’s no Emma Frost, either. Lafawndah has no discernible vision or aesthetic: She shrouds songs in signifiers and lets entropy take the wheel . The album’s one blip of color is Tourist, a lite-dancehall track that takes a jab at exoticism. Lafawndah convincingly embodies the latent colonialism that can underlie tourism. Speaking in first-person, her tourist makes casual observations that reek of unearned intimacy. I like how you dress and how you braid your hair, she coos with a treacly smugness. The song ultimately feels like a catfish though.
The long-awaited debut album from avant-garde auteur Lafawndah is finally headed our way soon - check out lead single "DADDY" here. Avant-garde R&B auteur Lafawndah has been on her grind for some time now, unveiling a truly awe-inspiring set of projects, from her filmic ‘Le Renard Bleu’ collaboration with Japanse composer Midori Takada and KENZO to her immersive TAN EP. Now, we are finally getting her debut album. ANCESTOR BOY is set to release on March 22, but in the meantime, we’ve got the premiere to the project’s lead single, DADDY. Give it a listen below.
I've been following Lafawndah since I saw her open for Kelela in 2016 and her debut is stunning. The production is compelling and complicated, but fun and fresh. After a slew of really good singles, it's nice to see the project come into fruition.
Landing on her Concordia imprint, the new album sees the leftfield innovator exploring unchartered emotional territory according to a press release. Described as, a bracing statement of intent, it follows up previous projects releases such as her ‘Tan’ EP and her collaboration with Midori Takada, ‘Le Renard Bleu’.
Tracklist: 1. Uniform 2. Daddy 3. Parallel 4. Ancestor Boy 5. Storm Chaser 6. Vous Et Nous (Feat. Ancestor Boy' imagines a pop music that is neither imperial nor local, but a freedom of movement; a residue, perhaps, from the album's nomadic creation between Los Angeles, Mexico City, New York, London, and Paris.

Album Ancestor Boy. Daddy Lyrics. I took your lips so I can kiss you Upside down, upside down I got your eyes, the same shadows They go like low echoes of yours I touch your nose so I can kid you Ooh, dada, ooh, dada I have your hair but I made a wish That chip on your shoulder will not be mine. Ancestor Boy Lafawndah.
