Listen to Rina Sawayama’s new single ‘Cherry’

It arrives alongside the announcement of a US headline tour.

Rina Sawayama made a real impression earlier this year with the release of her single ‘Valentine (What’s It Gonna Be)’, a convention-shunning anthem for 14th February.

Since then, she’s shared the stage with Charli XCX at her ‘Pop 2’ London show at Village Underground and announced live dates on both sides of the Atlantic, and now she’s back with new track ‘Cherry’.

A propulsive pop banger, it once again places Rina’s vocals at the fore, following ‘Valentine”s lead in showing the singer as a future chart-mingler.

The singer’s new live dates begin in Brooklyn at Elsewhere next month, and include five other US shows before she headlines London’s Heaven in October.

View the dates and listen to ‘Cherry’ below.

12 Brooklyn, Elsewhere
13 New York, Bowery Ballroom
14 Chicago, Subterranean
15 Toronto, Velvet Underground
