Xenia Rubinos Releases New Single ‘Sacude’

    Xenia Rubinos has released a new single, ‘Sacude’, from her forthcoming album Una Rosa. Check it out below.

    “Everytime I would sit down to improvise or write, I would just end up singing along to rumba songs instead,” Rubinos explained in a statement. “‘Sacude’ was the song that cut through the silence, the first she’d written in a long time and technically the first she wrote for Una Rosa. ‘Sacude’ was a kind of mantra for her, what she would say to herself to shake off the funk she was in. Beginning with a steady clave and sweetly-harmonized a cappella, the song quickly escalates into a heavy, electrified, stuttering backbeat that gives the song an ominous overtone.‘It’s definitely not a rumba, but it’s MY rumba.”

    Una Rosa lands on October 15 via Anti-. It includes the previously released tracks ‘Who Shot Ya?’, ‘Did My Best’, and ‘Cógelo Suave’.
