Rina Sawayama announces debut album with new single

“Comme des Garçons (Like the Boys)” is a “club fashion banger.”

Rina Sawayama has announced her debut album, SAWAYAMA, with an intoxicating new song titled “Comme des Garçons (Like the Boys).”

Produced by Bram Inscore, the track is a heady dose of house music, driven by an earth-shattering bassline. “Hot like a fever / Make you a believer / Write my name up in the sky / From Paris to Shibuya,” Sawayama coos on the pre-chorus.

“When I was writing this song I wanted, on one hand, to lyrically explore the idea of people having to adopt negative male tropes to appear confident,” Sawayama wrote in a press release. “Whilst on the other, sonically paying homage to the early 2000s dance tracks that made me feel confident.”

The Japanese-born British singer added: “I wanted to sit these two together and make a club fashion banger that makes you feeling like THAT bitch, whoever you are.”


SAWAYAMA will arrive April 17 via her newly signed label Dirty Hit. The album will include the previously released single, “STFU!”
