London-based pop futurist Rina Sawayama has released her new single ‘Cherry’.

The addictive new single is the second release of new music from Rina in 2018 since the release of her mini-album ‘RINA’ last year. ‘Cherry’ is a pansexual bop which Rina has described as “definitely my most personal but political.” The track sees Rina’s vocals soar effortlessly over production from friends and collaborators Hoost and Clarence Clarity, complete with spiralling synths and punchy drum loops

"I've always written songs about girls. I don't think I've ever mentioned a guy in my songs, and that's why I wanted to talk about it. For me there's still a lack of representation. I just think the reason why I wasn't so comfortable with my sexuality was because there was no one on TV or anywhere that I could point at and go, "Look mum! This person is what I was talking about!’” - Zing Tsjeng Rina

Over the past 6 months Rina teamed up with Shamir on her track “Tunnel Vision”, appeared on the cover of Clash Magazine, performed with Charli XCX at her Pop 2 London show, filmed a Vogue Meets feature and paired with Nicola Formichetti and i-D for her ‘Ordinary Superstar’ video.
