Nearly three years ago, Alina Baraz released her debut project ‘Urban Flora’ with producer Galimatias, which made many fall in love with her voice instantly after listening to just the first song. Now in 2018, Alina has placed another gem in the hands of her fans entitled ‘The Color of You’, a nine-song project that gives listeners a taste of what the singer-songwriter has been working on as of late. According to her interview with Complex here, she considers it a prelude and not an EP or album “For the prelude, the collection of songs was more true to the moment. It was like a subconscious stream of thoughts. When something happened I went to the studio in that moment and captured my exact mood for the day. I didn’t try to depict it I just sang what came out of my mind.”
The project, which not only contains her evolved but signature style of sound, also has two features from beloved artist, Khalid. She told Complex that he was one of her favorite people to work with, “Khalid is one of my favorite people to work with. In general, one of my favorite people. It’s the purest thing. I used to think it was his age, but the more I got to know him I really think it’s his artistry and mentality.”
The video was originally released on Complex where you can find the rest of her interview. If this is the new evolved Alina sound, I can’t even imagine what her debut album will sound like.
You can stream/ buy the album on Apple Music here
