Big Freedia is back with her new EP and sound! “This is the new 2018 bounce of Big Freedia,” the New Orleans native said of the upcoming project, titled Third Ward Bounce. The first single, “Rent,” was released Friday (March 30).
“I’m excited about the whole project because I’ve been working with some new producers and topliners,” she explained. “We’ve just been putting in a lot of work to make it fun, New and exciting. I’ve even been working with some new musical instruments to keep growing the sound of bounce.” And to get that sound to the masses the artist already has a scheduling of tours through fall. In May and June she’ll be in Europe. She also recently made her acting debut in the film Heart, Baby.
“I’ve broken down barriers and opened doors for bounce; I have laid the blueprint and it’s now time for them to follow,” she said. “But [to collaborate]? No, it’s too much hate."
The release is the lead single from Third Ward Bounce, set to drop June 1. “This is my first EP on my first major deal,” Freedia explained. “I’m with Asylum Records now.”
