Tinashe has decided to put out a warm up project called NIGHTRIDE on all streaming and for-purchase platforms.
Nightride features previously released songs “Company” and “Ride of Your Life.” Nightride also features the song “Party Favors,” but noticeably lacks the Young Thug feature present in the original version.
“It’s the business aspect,” Tinashe said to Nylon recently about her much-delayed album. “There’s always going to be a difference in opinion because they’re just looking at things from a different side. And I’m not mad at them for it.” Still, she expressed frustration that it still wasn’t out after all this time.
Although she’s been releasing singles periodically since September of last year, Tinashe hasn’t found a major hit to follow up the success of “2 On” with ScHoolboy Q. Likely as a result of this, her album has seen a slew of release windows come and go; Fall 2015, early 2016, and October 2016 all passed without a project. She was also forced to cancel her Joyride Tour earlier this year to focus on finishing the album, which it seems is still not complete.
