UPDATE: Ruby now up on Spotify. Hit up the stream and the new featurette with TIDAL below too.
As part of TIDAL’s aim to give shine to the independent music scene, they will have various interview spotlights and exclusive pre-streams of these buzzing, up coming artists. The first one I’ve seen is none other than Chicago based singer Lili K, whom you should know by now around these parts.
She’s ready to deliver RUBY on Tuesday but lets TIDAL subscribers get the first full listen. With it comes a great new interview too, where she lets people in on how she started working with Chance, Vic Mensa, and Peter CottonTale, while of course sharing some insight into the project.
“I view RUBY as my official introduction to the music world. It’s my baby. I have an amazing band by my side, and I’m so happy to be sharing this experience with a group of people who I truly feel are family. Recording with them, performing with them – it’s just a giant love fest, which I believe is evident in our music. After doing lots of featured spots and working within other genres, this album is ‘home’ for me.”
Also catch Lili and her band this Tuesday for the album release at the downtown Apple Store. (I like how the Apple Store is reaching out to cultured Chicago artists for in-stores. Great crossover. Last week, J. Ivy, next week Lili K.)
