Princess Nokia, born Destiny Frasqueri, drops her newest mixtape, A Girl Cried Red. The New York rapper described her new project as an “emo mixtape” and in a recent interview with Dazed, she expanded on the meaning behind the title.

“Blood, like a girl cried blood,” she explained. “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.”

In 2016, she broke out with her 1992 mixtape and re-released 1992 as an expanded deluxe project last year, serving as her official debut album. The music video for the lead single off of A Girl Cried Red, “Your Eyes Are Bleeding,” also was released today. Directed by Milah Libin, the visual features footage from the past two years of live shows.

You can stream the tape below and watch the video for “Your Eyes Are Bleeding” above.
