Dinky (real name Alejandra Iglesias) has announced her sixth studio work, Valor, scheduled for a September 30 release on Crosstown Rebels.

Perhaps known best for her decade-long residency at Panorama Bar, solidified by records on Visionquest and Cocoon Recordings, Iglesias' music is bolstered by a unique upbringing in keyboard, vocals, and classical guitar. Recent singles "Casa" and "Milk" have fused this creative duality, seamlessly blending layers of vocals, electronics, and acoustic instruments.

Composed during a particularly turbulent period of her life, the LP is also a candid reflection of Iglesias' personal struggles. “Valor in Spanish means 'courage' but it’s also the first letters of both my sons Valentin and Orlando combined," she explains. ‘This album is a personal journey through motherhood and pregnancy as an artist."

Listen to a minimix of five album cuts above before its September 30 release.
