Alina Baraz most recently dropped off her Color Of You surprise project equipped with appearances from Jada and Khalid, who pops up twice in the track listing. The finished product is a nine-track effort that follows up 2015’s Urban Flora, a collaborative debut released alongside Galimatias.
The arrival is a well-received outing from the budding siren, with cuts that all provide an ethereal R&B soundtrack to help you breeze through the romances of spring, summer, and beyond.
“I have always been infatuated by colors,” she explained of the inspiration behind the project. “I better understand myself in color. For example If I can’t understand my mood I’ll switch through a color light until it matches up with my thoughts. But in this case, something came into my life and I couldn’t define what it was and what I felt. It felt like a color that didn’t exist. So it’s me trying to interpret and understand a color I’m seeing for the first time.”
