Emika Returns with 'DREI' Album

Emika Returns with 'DREI' Album
Berlin-based producer Emika released a pair of albums for Ninja Tune, including a self-titled debut in 2011 and 2013's DVA. She's since started working on her own Emika Records imprint, for which she released the piano-based instrumental album Klavirni earlier this year. Now, she's announced details for her next proper pop LP.

The album is called DREI, and was created in a bafflingly short amount of time. According to a press release, it was written in two weeks. The artist recorded it herself.

She also shared a statement about the LP:

DREI is ultimately about freedom. Coping with freedom. Limitations versus freedom. The shock of a miracle. The madness of being alone. Ambitions and insecurities. The perils of a limitless creative mind. And without a doubt, my desire to produce fat hard beats without needing anyone—complete with a fresh sound.

DREI will be available on May 4 via Emika Records. The album's tracklisting is available below.
