TOKiMONSTA has announced her next project. Entitled Fovere, the effort will be a “mini-album” and is set to arrive on January 29. It will feature Anderson .Paak, frequent, like-minded collaborator Gavin Turek, The Drums’ Jonny Pierce and more. The LA heavyweight has also coupled the album announcement with the release of its lead single, “Put It Down.” “Put It Down” features Anderson .Paak and KRNE, two close colleagues of TOKi. All three appear to share a very strong mutual respect for one another, and TOKiMONSTA said the following to FADER regarding the release:
“Anderson .Paak is a friend and an artist I’ve always believed in…Our mutual respect for each other as family and musicians make our collaborations work so well, and ‘Put it Down’ shows a different facet to our collaborations. Also on board for this track is KRNE, who is an up-and-coming producer who was amazing to work with as well.”
TOKiMONSTA also attached this statement concerning her forthcoming project:
“It’s a body of work that is whole and that I’m proud of. It represents my life at the time it was being made–a point where a lot of transitions were being made and I had the biggest personal growth spurt. ‘Fovere’ essentially means, ‘to cherish’ in Latin. To cherish everything–good, bad, light and dark.”
