    "Good Grief" was also released a couple months ago.

    I love "Good Grief" so, so, so much. Already a top 5 Des track for me.

    I can't wait to listen to CHIME and try to pick out the songs she played on her last tour. It all sounded really good.

    I like this blurb she wrote up for the album:

    “I’m exceedingly proud to announce that Chime, my new full-length record, will be released on February 23rd. It’s 11 tracks, a couple of years in the making, and the collective effort of some old friends (Lazerbeak, Paper Tiger, Cecil Otter), and some new collaborators (Andy “Triple Threat” Thompson). It’s got some rap songs and some pop songs and one song about determinism that name drops Saint Thomas Aquinas.

    My life has changed considerably since my last album, Parts of Speech. I live half time in New York now and I look confident enough walking down the street to be stopped by the occasional tourist for directions. (I do not, however, have even a basic understanding of the F train’s weekend schedule—and am not sure how many years of reading the signage it will take to learn it.) I published my first travel piece for The New York Times Magazine and got to fill out my very own expense report, just like in the movies. My grandma Jeannette—an important voice in my adult life—died. I was invited to record a song for The Hamilton Mixtape. I got steamrolled by a pretty rough break-up. I bought myself a Maschine Mikro drum machine, read the first half of the manual three times, and banged out my very first beat—which ended up as a song called “Jumprope” on the new record. (As a former copyeditor, I understand “jump rope” to be two words. As a songwriter, my friends, I do not care.)

    I’m lucky to have connected with a listenership that’s been willing to support my work across disciplines—to read my essays that have nothing to do with music, or attend a science lecture, or check out a poetry reading. I’ve been able to venture into some new territory these past few years, learn some new skills, and now I’m enormously excited to return to releasing music. This album, like those past, will come out on Doomtree Records–the group of artists with whom I’ve worked for all of my adult life. You can check out the first song, “Fire Drills,” today.

    Industry norms dictate that a pop musician should release a full-length record every year and a half, lest she risk losing the interest of her listeners. Thanks for the patience while I finished this shit. I don’t want to jinx it, but I think 2018 is gonna be a hell of a year. More big news on the horizon.”

    I'm confused - her rapping is too deep and over-articulate for my tastes

    But her singing voice is beautiful, and the way she transitions from rapping to singing is flawless

    I should love "Good Grief", I'll give it time

    "Good Grief" and the title track might take it for me so far.
