Over a year ago, singer/rapper/producer Kitty launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for her debut album. "I want to finally create a REAL album," she wrote on the site. "I want it to sound perfect." Today, The FADER is premiering the first single from the upcoming project entitled "Asari Love Song," a breathy, '80s-tinged power ballad about virtual love. The new track is part of the 2016 Adult Swim Singles series, which has featured Elysia Crampton, Vince Staples, Earl Sweatshirt, and more.
"I'm really excited to share this song before any of the others from my new album, not only because I'm so pumped on the badass guitar solo but because it's one of the few songs that survived all three rewrites of the entire record," Kitty told The FADER over email. "I wrote it during a week where I was a little too emotionally invested in the budding relationship between two characters in my Mass Effect game. I'm stoked to perform it on tour, because I really like pretending I'm a hot bitch from the 80s."
