Dawn Richard is returning with a new album. Called Second Line: An Electro Revival, the record will arrive on April 30 via her new label home, Merge Records. Right now, though, you can watch a newly shared video for the album's "Bussifame," which was directed by Richard herself.

Speaking of Second Line, Richard called the upcoming record "a movement to bring pioneering Black women in electronic music to the forefront." According to a press release, this involves an album where the artist's King Creole persona is "assassin of stereotypes, a Black girl from the South at a crossroads in her artistic career."

Of the album, Richard added, "In death and in life, we celebrate the impact of a person's legacy through dance and music. I'm celebrating the death of old views in the industry. The death of boxes and limits. I'm celebrating the homecoming of the Future. The homecoming to the new wave of artists. The emergence of all the King Creoles to come. This is our revival."
