Tinashe’s second album, Joyride, has been delayed for very nearly the whole history of time, but never mind that: Tinashe has found herself a loophole. On Thursday, she dropped Nightride, a mixtape that doubles as a companion project to Joyride. The 15-track effort includes the previously released “Company,” “Ride of Your Life,” and “Party Favors,” as well as 13 sweet new jams. In announcing Nightride, Tinashe wrote: “This is the beginning of the journey, one piece of the puzzle that makes me who I am both as an artist and a human.” Nightride lasts precisely 51 minutes, so that’s 51 minutes of your life you can experience without the aching uncertainty of when the heck Joyride is coming.
