Ravyn Lenae has released “Xtasy.” This is the final single before she drops her debut album Hypnos May 20.
Lenae released the song alongside animated artwork co-directed by London-based visual artist Zongbo Jiang.
“Xtasy” is a quintessential Lenae track. Her voice slickly weaves around Kaytranada‘s stripped-back, bassy instrumental in a similar fashion to songs such as “Right of Spring” or “4 Leaf Clover.” There’s strength in her delivery, and every sonic peak and valley oozes with confidence.
Lenae shared her thoughts about Hypnos ahead of the album’s release.
“When you listen to the music, I hope you have a better understanding of me and even catch a better understanding of yourself… As artists, we make music as a pathway to help other people understand certain aspects of their lives,” Lenae says. “I’ve gone through the tunnels and seen the light on the other side.”
Lenae’s tour in support of the album starts May 26 in Seattle. You can find tickets here.
