SZA "Julia" + "Teen Spirit"

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

SZA's sticking to the script. We haven't heard any new music from the Jersey based emerging talent since the April release of her S EP, and now she returns with two new tracks from her upcoming Z EP. Z will be out this fall, and followed up by, you guessed it, her A EP. But let's not rush from Z to A, SZA comes through today with the two Z tracks "Julia" (produced by Felix Snow and Dave Free) and "Teen Spirit" (produced by WondaGurl).  "Julia" is definitely a new sounds from what we've heard from SZA to date with somewhat of an 80s dance sound to it, 'til about the 3 and a half minute mark (I'm guessing this is the segment TDE's Dave Free produced) where it transforms into a slowed down, droning jam (love it). "Teen Spirit," my favorite of the two,  brings a more familiar sound from SZA, the labeled "glitter trap" genre fits it well. More SZA soon come.
