Just ahead of the weekend, emerging songstress Tessa Rae is back with new music.

The Los Angeles-based singer on Thursday shared her hypnotic, slow-burning new single "Downtown," which is premiering on Variance. The new track, which is first this year, follows her 2016 debut release "Seventeen."

The new material comes as Tessa Rae is gearing up for her second EP, with "Downtown" serving as the first preview. There's no word yet on when the project will officially arrive, but it is expected sometime later this year.

The track, which features fellow L.A. artist In.Drip, can be heard below.
