Break of Dawn (formerly titled Milk & Honey) is the fourth studio album from Bay Area vocalist Goapele after a five-year-long hiatus.

Contents

Background

The first single, "Milk & Honey," was leaked on the Internet July 10th, 2009, while the video directed by David Telles went into rotation on August 4th, 2009, and was shot with the Red One Camera.[1] It offers a more suggestive and seductive vibe then what fans may be accustomed to from the singer. Goapele is known to incorporate messages of politics, love, romance, and struggle into her music. The second single, "Right Here," is a love song produced by Drumma Boy.

On August 28th, 2011, Goapele released the third single, "Play," a sensual song produced by Dan Electric & Teddy Thunderbolt.

Recording

Break of Dawn is being recorded at the Zoo in Downtown Oakland, California, home of Goapele’s Skylight Studios. This project will be another personal album with several love songs as well as up-tempo joints. Production-wise, tracks with Drumma Boy, Bedrock, Kanye West, Drumma Boy, Dan Electric, Mike Tiger, Bobby Ozuna (Raphael Saadiq, John Mayer, Erykah Badu), Malay (John Legend, Mary J. Blige), Jeff Bhasker (The Game, Kanye West, Ludacris, T.I), and other musicians are confirmed.

Concept

On this album Goapele reveals a more confident, open, and sensual side. She says she is liberating herself a little more and claims while there was something very empowering about appearing in a T-shirt without make-up on the cover of her first internationally distributed album, Even Closer, there is something equally empowering about shedding her fears of music-industry exploitation and strutting confidently into more brazen territory. She says, “Now if I want to dress sexy, I can, and if I want to be more blunt, I can. I just want to do what feels good.”[2]
