Julian Lamadrid has had our attention for the past few months already, but the New York-based artist has now released his first album, titled Mala Noche.

The 12-track project, which includes previously released standouts "Neon" and "Die Young," arrived this past week and it showcases the emerging singer's full pop prowess, drawing influence from a wide range of the musical spectrum, including new wave, bedroom pop, hip-hop and '80s synth music.

"This album means everything to me and making it saved my life," says Lamadrid of the new record. "I was in a pretty dark place when I made this, but putting my emotions and truth into every song kept me going."

He adds: "When I set out to make this record I had no money and not many friends, but I said to myself that I would die happy if I could just make a full-length album that was honest and true, and I feel that I’ve made that album ... The album is called 'bad night,' but today is a truly beautiful day."
