The day has finally come, Tinashe fans! After announcing the news yesterday, the singer released her Nightride mixtape and accompanying short film. While it isn't the Joyride album we were expecting, Tinashe has always pulled through with solid and innovative side projects since her early career days.

Nightride is filled with distorted, dark and intense tracks, including previously heard favorites "Company," "Ride of Your Life" and "Party Favors." It also features "Soul Glitch," which Tinashe told Fuse about last October. After watching the artful short film above, stream the mixtape for yourself below:

Following the release of Nightride, Tinashe is expected to drop her anticipated Joyride album next year. The singer is also teaming up with her idol Britney Spears for their "Slumber Party" remix. In the meantime, watch her share some life lessons with Fuse below:
