Ever since she arrived on the scene, singer-songwriter FKA twigs has given fans alike irresistible ballads to ball their eyes out to. Today, she releases her latest project CAPRISONGS with features from Pa Salieu, Shygirl, Dystopia, Rema, Daniel Caesar, Jorja Smith, and Unknown T amongst others. Calling this project a “mixtape,” the songstress shared that this release is her journey back to self through amazing collaborators and friends.
CAPRISONGS is led by “tears in the club” featuring The Weekend, a song that finds the pair letting go of grief and anxiety over an explosive dancefloor beat. The project was primarily produced by frequent collaborator El Guincho with Arca and Cirkut also contributing to the instrumentals and keys. Songs off the project that almost instantly stand out and cut deep are “ride the dragon” and “darjeeling,” two records that complement the full-length release very well.
Previously, FKA twigs saw viral triumph upon the release of her sophomore album MAGDALENE, which gave us hits like “mary magdalene,” “mirrored heart,” and “sad day.” This project is obviously much different, made completely over FaceTime, and is the epitome of an artist being isolated, which is somewhat reflected in some songs.
