10: Ava Max: ‘Diamonds & Dancefloors’
The much-anticipated second album by dance-pop superstar Ava Max, Diamonds & Dancefloors is set to get the new year started with a bang in January 2023. Not only will the singer present us with a radical image change as she replaces her blonde “Max-Cut” with a cherry-red bombshell look, but she’s also hinting that her new songs have been inspired by a break-up, and will be more personal than before. “This album is about my life and what I went thought in the last year and heartbreak… it’s basically heartbreak on the dancefloor,” Ava Max told Apple Music 1’s Zane Lowe. “It’s gonna make you cry and dance at the same time.”
Release date: 27 January 2023
