Tinashe has released her brand new single ‘Getting No Sleep’ and confirmed more details for her album ‘Quantum Baby’.

Following her runaway viral hit ‘Nasty’, the R&B singer dropped her new song on Friday (June 28), which continues the playful sensuality of her previous songs: “No bra, Santal, smells like cake / All good teeth and all gold Ace / He said, ‘Feels Friday like, different night, same vibe’ / Take you outside, movie scene every time”.

The singer also shared the release date for her upcoming album ‘Quantum Baby’, which will arrive in August 16. It’s been described as the second part to a trilogy, with the first instalment ‘BB/Ang3l’ having arrived last year.

“’Quantum Baby’ is about getting to know me on a deeper level,” the musician said of the album. “It’s about exploring who I am as a person and who I am as an artist. I’ve never been one to be put into a box, so the name ‘Quantum Baby’ encompasses all the different parts that make up who I am as a creative.”

“My thoughts also go to Tinashe and Uniiqu3 as we were all so looking forward to this tour together,” she continued. “I’m truly heartbroken by the situation and I hope to be back to see you all as soon as I am able. Love, Shygirl.”
