BØRNS – BLUE MADONNA
When you can call on Lana Del Rey to duet on your album opener you know big things are expected of you. So it is for this genderbending upstart, born 26 years ago as Garrett Børns in the backwaters of the US. With a penchant for crop tops, nail polish and a voice easily mistaken for a woman’s, he takes gender fluidity to a new level. Despite his album’s title, call him instead a White Prince, with his love of psychedelic pop and the theatrical. With a dash of glam rock and David Bowie, Blue Madonna might just be the most exciting record you’ll hear in early 2018. Gucci love Børns so much they’re collaborating with him.
