Nikki Lynette is out with a new EP.
Her first project since 2011’s Roses N’ Guns 2, the Chicago artist has released the first in a three part series entitled “Happy Songs About Unhappy Things,” which will chronicle “the experience of being driven to a dark place and finding your way back from it.” “I’m releasing it in September because it’s the anniversary of when I tried to end my life,” Lynette explains. “I didn’t think I’d live to release new music. So it makes sense to kick off the project at a time that means something to me.”
Primarily self-produced, the likes of Da Internz (Big Sean’s “Dance (A$$)”) and her her long time collaborator Matt Hennessy also contributes to the six-track EP.
