Yaya Bey announces new album 'Remember Your North Star'

Following on from the release of her much-loved EP 'The Things I Can't Take With Me' last year, Yaya Bey has now announced her plans for a new studio album, arriving in the summer.

The new full-length 'Remember Your North Star' is being previewed by the new lead single 'keisha', which comes accompanied by a brilliant self-directed and choreographed video, and is set to be released on the 17th June via Big Dada.

Speaking about the new visuals, she said, "This video is my declaration that this is my season to be with me. I am free and sovereign."

While adding about the new album, "I saw a tweet that said, "Black women have never seen healthy love or have been loved in a healthy way." That's a deep wound for us. Then I started to think about our responses to that as Black women. So this album is kind of my thesis. Even though we need to be all these different types of women, ultimately we do want love: love of self and love from our community. The album is a reminder of that goal."
