FKA twigs Releases New Mixtape “CAPRISONGS”: Streaming
- British singer-songwriter FKA twigs released the first mixtape “CAPRISONGS” on January 14, 2022 via Atlantic Records.
This marks the first major label release for FKA twigs. It follows up her sophomore album “Magdalene”, which was released in 2019.
The mixtape comprises 17-track, featuring guest appearances from Pa Salieu, the Weeknd, Shygirl, Dystopia, Rema, Daniel Caesar, Jorja Smith, and Unknown T.
Produced by El Guincho, who co-executive produced the mixtape alongside Twigs, as well as Arca, Cirkut, and Mike Dean, among others.
FKA twigs shared on social media, “in the first lockdown i called around my team hinting that maybe i had hit the end of the road making music and putting my insides on blast how i have done for the last few years, it felt nice playing with the idea of not creating for the world. i listened to podcasts and spoke to my friends loads on facetime, isolating alone i would pop my girlfriends on loud speaker and potter around my house listening to them natter on about this and that. as our lives got smaller and there was less to talk about i found the search for connection and even the most simple conversations incredibly comforting. when i went out i would find myself listening in on other people talking and imagining what it would be like to hang out with those nattering strangers. i loved catching sound bytes of the world around me and filling in the blanks, my imagination was set alight.”
She continued, “i started recording my friends talking and weaved it through the mixtape like a narrative of my healing. having such wonderful people around me to laugh with. made me feel lucky. if you are lonely or feel isolated or void of encouragement by your immediate circle you can borrow my friends on the mixtape.
i think it's my response to where the world has been at in recent times. the humm of the background podcast acting as the soundtrack to our lives as we desperately try not to be alone.”
She added, “pablo had so much belief in me. it gave me a lot of confidence to want more for myself as an artist. also to reach out and collaborate with other artists and also to push myself to channel my pain and anxiety into work that felt more inclusive and dare i say joyful. this is something i have never been able to do before in my art those of you who have listened to magdalene know haha.
i have fallen back in love with music, danger, trying new things, sex, love, raves. caprisongs is my journey back to myself through my amazing collaborators and friends. it felt so daunting knowing that i had to heal in front of the world, i hated the idea of it, but there was a tipping point where i knew i could get this project out and it would make me feel better and it really has.”
