Shygirl Premieres New Remix of “Heaven” featuring Tinashe on BBC Radio 1
London-based rapper Shygirl premiered a new remix of “Heaven” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Clara Amfo.
This time, she teamed up with American singer-songwriter Tinashe on the track.
The original version of the song is featured on her debut studio album “Nymph”, which was released last September.
Also, the remix version will appear on the deluxe version of the debut album.
The track was written by Shygirl, Mura Masa, Kingdom, and Danny L Harle.
Shygirl told Clara Amfo about the remix, “I was really lucky. Like, I said, with the album. It's a conversation starter. So it's like if someone gets it, they reach out and they continue that. And I think Tinashe really got the vibe, especially with heaven. I actually, when she first started talking to me, I said I'll maybe this other song that's just like not so she kind of claimed it. And I prefer that when someone really feels an affinity with the track, because obviously, like motion lead into this remix.”
- She continued, “She (Tinashe) actually invited me to her house. And we recorded in our home studio, which I thought was super nice and like really personal, and that's what I wanted the record to be like, intimate personal. And she was so receptive to like anything I said and was like, 'What did you mean when you wrote this', and then like, had some thoughts and ideas about like, the melodies and I just wanted her to like, run wild with it. Basically, I feel like that's what we got in the end.”
The deluxe version of the album is set to be released on April 14, 2023.
The album comprises 11-track, featuring guest appearances from Tinashe, Sevdaliza, Deto Black, and Arca.
Shygirl said, I mean, “This is definitely an experiment. I feel like I just started the conversation with the album and I was like, wait, I'm not done. So yeah, we got a little bit extra just extra juicy.”
She added, “It feels like a lifetime ago now already. But when the album came out, I think I was just surprised that people understood what I was trying to do. I think for ages I'd been like, I'm so different in no one gets me. And then when the album came out, they're like, actually, we do totally understand what you're saying. And then that gives you the confidence to say a bit more expand on the story. So I think that's where I'm at with Nymph.”
