ADORE DELANO, THE BREAKOUT STAR OF RUPAUL?S DRAG RACE, RELEASES HER DEBUT ALBUM
?TILL DEATH DO US PARTY?
?Along with Music Video For Album?s Blazing Hip-Pop Ballad, ?I Adore U?
Adore Delano won the hearts of millions, clawing her way to the Top 3 on this past season?s RuPaul?s Drag Race. With ferocious performances and her patented biting attitude, the teenage queen of wigs n? cigs went on to conquer three challenges, tying Bianco Del Rio with most episode wins. Now she is releasing her debut full-length album, Till Death Do Us Party, featuring the smash single, ?DTF?. ??Additionally, Adore Delano is unleashing the music video for ?I Adore U?, her heart wrenching hip-pop ballad featured on Till Death Do Us Party.? The album is available for purchase on iTunes and on all major online retailers.
?It’s a playful pop album with heart and soul,? says Adore Delano of Till Death Do Us Party. ?The songs are really fun. I wrote every one based on experiences from my life.? They all have a giant piece of me in them,? she laughs.
?DTF?, a hyper-sexualized track that exudes the heat and raw passion of the Spanish hood where Delano grew up, released last month.? It drew inspiration from the men Delano met online.? ?The ones who in person looked completely different from their profiles, but still gave good sex,? she explains, adding that, ?Sometimes music should be amusing.? I have other songs on the album that are more thought provoking.?
?I Adore U?, the next release off Till Death Do Us Party, is one of them.? It?s an emotionally charged track about how lovers make the beds they lie in. Delano calls it her most personal track on the album.
?It?s about a boy named Colton Moyer,? she reveals. ?He is such an awesome guy.? We were dating and I hurt him so bad.?
The regret she feels over the break up is brilliantly depicted in the song?s music video, directed by Ben Simkins of Geek Mythology Productions.? It shows the evolution of a passionate love, but told in reverse.? ?Its such a beautiful video.? I cried the first time watching it.?
Adore Delano became a breakout star on the sixth season of RuPaul?s Drag Race.? She wasn?t new to reality television, however, having completed on seasons 6 and 7 of American Idol as her male persona, Danny Noriega.? “I never felt so in drag than when I was out of drag”, she says of her American Idol experience, acknowledging a sense of shame for having tamed her look for the show.
Determined not to?live with one more ounce of regret, he decided he would do things?his way, and only his way, from there on out.?He entered a drag competition in?West Hollywood as Adore Delano, whom he affectionately refers to as ?the super hero for my soul?, and won.
In December 2013, Logo announced that Adore Delano was among 14 drag queens competing on the sixth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race.? Adore would go all the way to the show?s finale, vying for the top prize against Bianca Del Rio and Courtney Act.
?RuPaul’s Drag Race gave me the opportunity to express myself, and to become a role model for those who don?t necessarily fit in,? she says today.? ?I?m representing the new queens, the weirdos, the unpolished.? I stand for those who have been told ?you can?t do this.? I?m here to say, ?you can?.? You should never question yourself, if you want to do something, do it?.
Taking her words to heart, Adore Delano is preparing to embark on a nationwide tour with her band later this year, beginning with a full concert performance at New York?s Gramercy Theatre on June 13th.
She has also teamed with World of Wonder, the producers of RuPaul?s Drag Race, on the launch of a new web series,?Let The Music Play.? Releasing in conjunction with the Till Death Do Us Party album, the eleven-week series will feature Adore sharing entertaining, intimate, behind-the-scenes details of each track.
?I will bring drag back into the mainstream market with this album,? Delano declares.? ?It’s about time we get taken seriously as artists.?
