copeland unveils full-length solo album Because I'm Worth It, to be self-released in May. Let's get emotional about this together, yeah??

Because it’s, like, completely obvious that (ex-Inga, ex-capital C) copeland is a totally fussy, emotionless, mathematical-minded, hi-fi perfectionist, we can’t be surprised that it’s taken her this long to unveil a full-fledged solo album. I mean, she’s known around the music world for releasing such clean, polished pop statements as 2012’s Black is Beautiful (TMT Review) with fellow ascetic Dean Blunt for a reason, folks. You think clean, polished gems of copeland’s caliber just, like, kinda sluice through all willy-nilly on shitty old 4-track recorders or something? Sheesh…

Wait, what? Oh, THAT copeland!

Uh, in that case: never mind all that. Just know this: copeland has announced she’ll be self-releasing her debut full-length album of real-as-hell emotional dub-rap, entitled Because I’m Worth It this May (cover art above), so GET READY TO WEEP AND DANCE simultaneously. The thing was “written, produced and recorded by copeland at Stroomi Rand, except ‘advice to young girls’ and ambient keyboard on ‘l’oreal,’ produced & recorded by copeland and Actress at Werk Haus.” Okay! “vocals throughout by copeland. Mixed and mastered by Amir Shoat.”

“Sold!” right? Well, in case you’re not, here’s a lyric that she shared with us:

spill a tear and then you cry for ldn
is it the kinda place you’d die for?
how does it feel to be lied to?
but then again what’s a girl to do?

Come ON, folks! Are we all weeping? Are we all dancing? Good.
