Joyce Wrice has announced details of a new EP. Motive will be released on October 7 and features three tracks produced by Kaytranada, including latest single “Iced Tea.” The Lady Snowblood-style video for that song can be seen below.
Wrice and Kaytranada previously worked together on the L.A.-based R&B singer’s 2021 debut Overgrown. Other producers on the five-track project include Kaelin Ellis (Lupe Fiasco, Sango), Osinachi Nwaneri, and Mack Kaene.
“In between coming off of my debut album and brainstorming ideas for my sophomore album, I was motivated to create an EP that the world could dance to,” Wrice says. “This new project is experimental, fun, carefree, and sexy. After Overgrown, I was inspired to be free-spirited and to let loose and during this process I was consistently asking myself, ‘what’s your motive?’”
