“Lorely Rodriguez is EMPRESS OF. This is a project of sight + sound.” This is how the enigmatic singer introduces herself on her newly launched, Craigslist-aping website. Last week we shared Empress’ 11 colorminutes, a project in which she matches a minute-long snippet of a song or demo with a corresponding color. We were impressed by the ingenuity of the experiment, and she music put forth was rife with potential.

Today, Empress of shares her first ever single, “Don’t Tell Me,” a soaring and pleading lullaby that makes good on that potential displayed last week. The song came with artwork that suggests we can expect a release from Empress of called Champagne in the near future. For now, download the mp3 or listen below:
