    Big Freedia is back and “bigga” than ever: The beloved New Orleans icon’s latest album, Central City, is out now.

    The first full-length release from Freedia since 2014’s Just Be Free features guest performances from several of her high-profile friends, including Lil Wayne, Faith Evans, Ciara, Kelly Price, and more. The album also shows Freedia infusing her signature Bounce style with an invigorated, hip-hop-inspired energy, a gumbo she’s dubbed “Bigga Bounce.” Pre-orders are ongoing.

    “Bounce has been through many iterations — from Triggerman to Sissy to Cash Money Bounce,” Freedia explained in a press statement. “But my new album is something I call Bigga Bounce. Welcome to Central City, y’all, where I pay homage to my city, my roots, hip-hop, and to the art of creating a new sound.”

    Central City includes the singles “Bigfoot,” “Central City Freestyle,” and “$100 Bill” featuring Ciara. Stream the record in full below.

    Freedia will also be hitting the road this summer for a number of dates across North America, including stops for the Re:SET concert series, where she’ll open for LCD Soundsystem. Check out the full list of dates below and grab your tickets here.
