Emerging as a proven creative disruptor, critically acclaimed R&B enchantress India Shawn presents her anxiously awaited full-length debut album, Before We Go Deeper, via Epic Records today.

Flaunting a myriad of moods, her spirit shines on the single “CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE.”Clean throwback guitar threads through a head-nodding tambourine-driven beat as she relives the ups and downs of a rocky romance in a call-and-response chorus. At the heart of the track, she flexes her expansive vocal range, stretching from intimate intonation into moments of the heavenly high register.

BEFORE WE GO DEEPER evokes every side of INDIA’s inimitable style. “WHEN I CALL” glides on an otherworldly bounce as she urges, “Give me love, when I call, pick it up.” Her voice flutters above acoustic guitar on the intimate “SAME FLOOR,” while “JUST YOU” serves as a sweet conclusion punctuated by a funky riff, swooning strings, and organic percussion. In the finale, she assures, “All I wanted is just you.”

Meanwhile, the project boasts fan favorites such as “CALI LOVE,” “DON’T PLAY WITH MY HEART,” and “TOO SWEET” [feat. Unknown Mortal Orchestra], “NOT TOO DEEP” [feat. 6LACK], and “MOVIN ON” [feat. Anderson.Paak].

She teased out the record with “EXCHANGE” earlier this summer. Beyond generating 317K Spotify streams, it attracted widespread praise.

INDIA picks up the momentum she ignited with 2021’s BEFORE WE GO EP. Beyond tallying over 10 million-plus streams, the project earned widespread critical acclaim. OKAYPLAYER named it one of “14 New Hip-Hop & R&B Albums You Should Be Listening To” and hailed it as “lush, moody, and reflective.” Snobette dubbed it “a sweetly smooth seven-song r&b project,” and HotNewHipHop summed it up as “perfect for R&B lovers.” Among many highlights, NPR applauded the single “DON’T PLAY WITH MY HEART” as “70s nostalgia at its finest, with a stank-face inducing bassline.”Dive Deeper with India Shawn now.
