D∆WN's Redemption comes out Nov. 18.

D∆WN's had a busy 2016, dropping three separate videos for "Not Above That," a fashion film for "Wake Up," a single for Adult Swim, an EP with Kingdom, a feature on Machinedrum's "Do It 4 U," and not to mention a sleepy and creepy cover of Adele's "Hello" at the end of last year. But it's all been leading up to the final entry of an album trilogy from of the artist formerly known as Dawn Richard. Redemption is imminent.

The hyper, brassy "Renegades" is the first single, very much in line with D∆WN's futuristic club music that pulses a robotic soul.

Redemption comes out Nov. 18.
