Princess Nokia has released a brand new mixtape for us to bump all summer long. The New York rapper has dropped A Girl Cried Red, self-described as an “emo mixtape.” The lead single from the mixtape, “Your Eyes Are Bleeding” is a perfect example of what to expect on the rest of the tracks. The lead single also debuted with a video, as seen above. The video feels nostalgic and shows Nokia on tour while dealing with highs and lows.
While explaining the title of the mixtape, Nokia said, “Blood, like a girl cried blood. It’s taken from my favorite song, ‘The Robot with Human Hair.’ I have a lot of references from this Dance Gavin Dance album, and the first line in the song is ‘Your eyes are bleeding.’ I always loved that image, and it’s a big motif in my work. The mixtape name is supposed to mean a girl cried blood, or a girl cried fury. There’s so many interpretations of what red is.”
