RL Grime was up to something yesterday. We noted that he had closed his online store and password protected it. Suspicious huh? Well, today we finally got some answers. The release date for his incredibly anticipated album, NOVA, has finally arrived. The LP will be dropping on July 27. While we still have over a
RL Grime has announced his first new album in nearly four years. It will be titled NOVA, and the 15-track compilation is set to be released on July 27. In addition to the album announcement, the producer has given fans an idea of what to expect with the release of the album’s second single, “Undo,” featuring Jeremih and Tory Lanez.
The track skews hip hop, but Grime manages to infuse his signature electronic style into the song’s drop. The producer commented in an official release about his inspiration for the new album.
“NOVA came from obsessive ideation on growth, and on transition. The art, and stories, and the moments that inspired me through this record tend to explore this as well. The feeling of leaving behind what was, and of welcoming the foreign. Throughout the process I had this vision of a “nova”, or of a star no bigger than a person launching from earth into outer space and expanding endlessly until its light was all that we could see. That’s the feeling I get from these records, infinite light.” – RL GRIME
Other collaborators for the album will include Chief Keef, Ty Dolla $ign, and Miguel among others, which showcases the producers divergence into a more hip hop style for his upcoming album.

Since dropping International banger “Stay For It” featuring Miguel, all the buzz has been around RL Grime and when his highly anticipated album would hit the shelf. He followed “Stay For It” up with more of a pop-infused track featuring Daya titled “I Wanna Know”. The diverse sound experimentation made us even hungrier for more
RL Grime has been the talk of the town for well over a year now. His upcoming (and forever upcoming) new album NOVA has been one of the most anticipated albums in the last several years. This stems from the fact that his last LP, VOID changed the way trap music was made forever. It
RL Grime‘s impending sophomore album, Nova, has had fans anxiously on the edge of their seats, awaiting the follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2014 debut LP, Void. An exceedingly promising glimpse from Nova finds Henry Steinway connecting with heavyweight pop vocalist Daya on “I Wanna Know,” landing unequivocally as RL’s most commercially successful offering to date. Marking the WeDidIt producer’s first top 10 US dance record with over 14 million plays to date, as well as grabbing the top slot on iTunes Electronic charts in the US, Australia, and New Zealand, “I Wanna Know” has been one of the most in-demand tunes of the year — and now the remixing effort is officially in fans’ hands.
Dancing Astronaut, in conjunction with WAVO.me and RL Grime, are lighting the beacon for producers to try their hands at remixing “I Wanna Know,” offering the chance to lay down an inventive new take on RL’s sweeping summer hit. The remix competition will run through July 9, and the winning remix will receive a worldwide premiere on Dancing Astronaut. The grand prize also includes a lifetime WAVO Pro membership and an exclusive Nova merch capsule.
Even though fans of RL Grime have given up hope for his album to be released in 2018, RL Grime initially teased the NOVA project that started out as a zine and has developed into an album project and tour. While we can guess that RL Grime will include “Era,” “Stay For It It,” and
