Xenia Rubinos has shared “Dia Libre en el Yanky,” a reimagined version of “Working All the Time,” from her 2021 LP Una Rosa. She also announced a run of West Coast tour dates in late October and early November. Check out the video for “Dia Libre en el Yanky” and the new tour dates below. 

“Dia Libre en el Yanky” is the latest in a series of re-worked tracks made as a part of the Sonos Radio podcast Music Is Everything! The track features Leo Genovese on piano and Yasser Tejeda on guitar, with additional vocals from Modesto Flako Jimenez and El Individuo. Of the session, Rubinos said in a statement: 

“This was the first track we worked on as a group during this session. It was an all-star cypher with musicians who had never met or played together coming together to improvise on tracks off of my record. My friend and poet/actor Modesto Flako Jimenez came in to overdub some hypeman vocals and kicks off the track with his characteristic Dominican swagger, then El Individuo just knocked it out of the park freestyling about his story as a rapper coming up and how he now found himself “En el Yanky” rapping with us in the studio. It was one of the first sessions he did since arriving in the states and we were so honored to have him with us.”

Rubinos recently performed at the 2022 Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago.
