Back in 2015 Natalie Prass released her self-titled debut album and conquered hearts everywhere, even that of Danny Brown, who proclaimed it to be his album of the year. It's been a long wait for more new music from the young talent, but that ends today as she returns with the new song 'Short Court Style' and the announcement of a new album called The Future and the Past for June 1st.

By now you've already noticed Natalie slaying in the all-burgundy outfit above, but her sartorial sense doesn't stop there, as she is also rocking an 80s throwback jumpsuit in the video for 'Short Court Style', as well as odd gloves - a hard look to pull off, but one which she does assuredly. It's a fitting look for the song, as 'Short Court Style' is her most immediately poppy song to date, and could easily have found its way onto radio playlists everywhere during the 80s (and hopefully today, too).

The delightfully light song and video (co-directed by Prass and Erica Prince) belie the weight of emotion that went into making the album, which you can read more about at the bottom of this post.

Watch and listen to 'Short Court Style' below.

The Future and The Past was written in the wake of the Trump election, as she scrapped her previously written work to restart. Prass explains: “I was devastated... it made me question what it means to be a woman in America, whether any of the things I thought were getting better were actually improving, who I am and what I believe in. I knew I would be so upset with myself if I didn’t take the opportunity to say some of the things that meant so much to me, so I decided to rewrite the record. I needed to make an album that was going to get me out of my funk, one that would hopefully lift other people out of theirs, too, because that’s what music is all about.”

We'll get to hear that emotion on The Future and The Past on June 1st. Or, beforehand when she plays some select intimate dates, seen below:
