Empress Of shares her latest single “Femenine.” The song comes alongside a music video directed and choreographed by Ryan Heffington (Emmy for work on Euphoria, MTV VMA for Sia’s “Chandelier”), featuring a sweaty dance party to the pulsing, Nick Sylvester produced track. The song serves as another preview of the Honduran-American artist’s upcoming studio album and is the first Spanish-language track dropping from the project.

Empress Of shares about filming the video, “Was a dream to work with Ryan. No one moves like him and no one sees through a camera like him. Legend is an understatement and I loved working in this fever dream fantasy with him.”

Empress Of executive produced all of the songs on her forthcoming project and was inspired by vocal music — infusing each track with layers of her voice. Her vocals became the drum beats, the bass and the keyboard lines, with ASMR breathing surfacing throughout the album.

This new song follows her recent single “Kiss Me,” featuring Rina Sawayama, that was followed by a string of tour dates together. Earlier this year Empress Of also opened for Carly Rae Jepsen on her North American tour in addition to wowing audiences at festivals like Outside Lands and Corona Capital.

Empress Of’previous Save Me EP features several standout singles, including “Turn The Table” featuring Jim-E Stack, “Dance For You,” and the title track “Save Me,” which were all crafted during a period of honest introspection. Empress Of has also collaborated with Top 40 pop artists like Khalid, cultural icons like Blood Orange, Lewis OfMan, and DJ legend Boyz Noise and much more.
