    Big Freedia is back and “bigga” than ever: The beloved New Orleans icon has announced that her latest album, Central City, is due out on June 23rd. She also unveiled the record’s third single, “Bigfoot.” Stream the song below.

    The first full-length release from Freedia since 2014’s Just Be Free will feature guest performances from several of her high-profile friends, including Lil Wayne, Faith Evans, Ciara, Kelly Price, and more. The album will also show Freedia infusing her signature Bounce style with an invigorated, hip-hop-inspired energy, a gumbo she’s dubbed “Bigga Bounce.” Pre-orders are ongoing.

    “Bounce has been through many iterations — from Triggerman to Sissy to Cash Money Bounce,” Freedia explained in a press statement. “But my new album is something I call Bigga Bounce. Welcome to Central City, y’all, where I pay homage to my city, my roots, hip-hop, and to the art of creating a new sound.”


    “Bigfoot” emphasizes this by being an irresistibly fun anthem for stomping… like, literally putting on big clompers, getting cash money, and stomping all around. “Muthafuckin’ Sasquatch stompin’ through your city,” the lyrics go. “Comin’ for the big bags, nothin’ itty bitty, bitch.” With a booming bass holding down the bottom beneath Freedia’s explosive vocal delivery, the track embraces all the elements that make her a lasting presence, including her inimitable ability to empower.

    “Bigfoot” is the third single from Central City that Freedia has shared. In March, she unveiled the lead single, “Central City Freestyle,” and earlier this month, she shared “$100 Bill” featuring Ciara.

    Freedia will also be hitting the road this summer for a number of dates across North America, including stops for the Re:SET concert series, where she’ll open for LCD Soundsystem. Check out the full list of dates below and grab your tickets here.
