Dating, in all its complexities, is a journey through unpredictable terrain.

Her newest single, “Red Flags,” a preview of the forthcoming album What Now, serves as an introspective chronicle of the missteps made in the pursuit of love.

In the soulful lyrics, Howard candidly expresses her emotional journey: “Don’t think / Listen what I’m feeling first / I came, I saw / Unconscious / The best time that I ever had / That’s when the worst times started / I followed you and didn’t look back / I didn’t know love could feel like that / I ran right through them red flags / I ran right through them,” encapsulating the highs and lows of her romantic endeavors.

Despite the glaring red flags, Howard acknowledges the paradoxical allure some find in toxic relationships. The song draws from her personal rollercoaster of emotions, offering a glimpse into the complexities of navigating love.

In an Instagram announcement on November 17, 2023, Howard shared her excitement for the upcoming album, scheduled for release on February 2, 2024. Describing it as her “sonic diary from the last few years,” she hints at a deeply personal and reflective musical journey.

“If ‘Red Flag’ is the appetizer, you can only guess what’s to come from the full musical serving,” teases Howard, leaving fans eager for the complete experience.

“Red Flags” is a poignant prelude to Howard’s musical revelations, providing listeners with a taste of the emotional depth to expect from “What Now.” The album, set to release on February 2, 2024, via Island Records/EMI, promises an immersive exploration of love, mistakes, and self-discovery.
