Rosalía Unveils A New Song & Video Today With The Release
Of “AUTE CUTURE”
(New York, NY – May 30, 2019) Rosalía continues to cement her place as a verifiable global pop star with the release of her new song “Aute Cuture.” Depicting a confident young woman who has overcome heartbreak, and now projects her strength through a passion for fashion and personal style, the song was co-written and co-lyricized by Rosalía, with El Guincho and Spanish author Leticia Sala. Rosalía, who is widely celebrated for her groundbreaking fusion of classic Flamenco with electronic beats and urban rhythm, releases the track alongside another characteristic high octane, eye popping video. Directed by Bradley & Pablo with a story by Rosalía and Pili, the video tells the tale of the “Aute Cuture” – a ‘mystic beauty gang.’ The latex clad gang rolls into town in custom rides and reinvigorates everyone with their no-nonsense leader providing a dose of glamour and handclap ready bejeweled nails.

“AUTE CUTURE es el título: mal escrito pero con guasa y fuerza. Compuse este tema antes de empezar la gira del mal querer y me he tomado el tiempo necesario para que la canción saliera con el mejor video que pudiera acompañarla. Bien de palmas, nail art y tarantino vibe. Disfrutadla y ojalá os haga bailar y reír como a mí.” – Rosalía
(“AUTE CUTURE is the title: written incorrectly but with a sense of humor and strength. I wrote this song before going out to tour El Mal Querer and I have taken the time necessary so the song would come out with the best video to accompany it. Filled with claps, nail art, and a Tarantino vibe. Enjoy it and hopefully it’ll make you dance and laugh like it does me”)
Featured as Zane Lowe’s World Record on Beats 1 on Apple Music for its debut this week, “Aute Cuture” arrives amidst the continued success of Rosalía previous single “Con Altura” with Reggaeton superstar J Balvin and featuring El Guincho. After debuting just two months ago with best of week picks from Pitchfork, The New York Times, Jimmy Fallon and many more, “Con Altura” has surged into the Top-5 of YouTube’s Global Music Videos Chart across recent weeks, and was just named as one of TIME’s “10 Best Songs of 2019 (thus far)” – declaring it “sounds like the future of global pop music.” Recognition for Rosalía’s groundbreaking artistry continued this week, as FADER’s just unveiled COVER profile from their influential annual music issue heralds the young star for “transforming what it means to be a pop star – as she reaches global stardom.”
Rosalía’s landmark album El Mal Querer was released to immediate critical and commercial success last fall. The album’s groundbreaking fusion of classic Flamenco with R&B and electronic beats, coupled with Rosalía’s nod to the visual arts, fashion and choreography was strongly embraced by fans across the globe. The music industry at large took note, with Rosalía garnering six Latin Grammy nominations, and taking home the awards for Best Alternative Song and Best Urban Fusion Performance.
End of Year critical praise also followed suit, with the young Spanish artist receiving multiple #1 picks for Best Album, Video, Song and New Artist of 2018. The first half of 2019 has proven that Rosalía’s trajectory continue to rise, with special coverage such as New York Times Magazine (25 Songs That Matter Now), Rolling Stone (Year in Music), Billboard (2019 Preview), and TIME’s (2019 New Generation Leaders) profiles, a collaborative duet on James Blake’s new album, multiple Billboard Latin Music Award nominations and an appearance in Pedro Almodóvar’s just released new film “Dolor y Gloria” starring Oscar winner Penelope Cruz.
Following her starmaking Coachella performances on April 12th and 19th – in which she shared “Aute Cuture” for the first time – and a sold out limited engagement of her “El Mal Querer Tour,” Rosalia continues to bring her stunning live show to fans around the world.
