New Music To Know This Week: Robyn’s Sexy Comeback, Miranda Lambert’s Divorce Anthem & More

Aida Victoria describes the time in her life when she wrote “Dope Queen Blues” as “a hazy, wild, debaucherous time,” and wow are those the exact words I’d use to describe the vibe of this track. It has a little magic spread on it courtesy of The National’s Aaron Dessner, who produces (and whose mind has to be responsible for that signature heavy, deep piano part). I’ve never heard someone sing “we are lost in vain” and sound so gleeful. Thankful to hear those Morphine-influenced horns on this track too, someone needed to bring that sound back.
