Rap star on the rise FKA twigs returns with a new massive mixtape “CAPRISONGS” which marks the start of twigs’ new major label partnership with Atlantic Records.
CAPRISONGS was born out of twigs’ desire to be back with friends dancing and having fun. Teaming up initially with producer El Guincho, the pair soon recruited friends and collaborators to sing, write and produce on tracks for the mixtape.
CAPRISONGS marks the first major-label release for FKA twigs who recently partnered with Atlantic Records for this next exciting phase of her art. “FKA twigs is the kind of artist you dream of signing –one with truly original vision, voice, and presence,” said Julie Greenwald, Atlantic Records Chairman/COO. “She’s among the most compelling talents, always pushing her creative envelope to deliver emotionally honest music that’s both intensely personal and universal. We’re thrilled that she’s chosen Atlantic to be her home as she continues on her fantastic musical adventure.”
She will also launch a new line of mixtape-themed merchandise, including hoodies, tees, and shorts. The collection is available today at 10 am EST and can be found here.
“The progression of FKA twigs’ music over the past decade has been extraordinary,” said Craig Kallman, Atlantic Records Chairman/CEO. “She’s never content to stay in one place – constantly crossing musical boundaries, embracing fresh sounds, telling new stories, and exploring what’s next. An amazing vocalist, songwriter, lyricist, and producer, she’s barely scratched the surface of her potential, and we’re incredibly excited to see what she’ll be bringing her fans in the years to come.” In the UK, she will continue to release music via Young.
CAPRISONGS is executive produced by FKA twigs and El Guincho and features production from FKA twigs, El Guincho, Koreless, P2J, Mike Dean, Marius de Vries, Jasper Harris, Teo Halm, Arca, FRED, Psymun, Cirkut, BKay, Reaper, Sega Bodega, Fake Guido, Pau, Felix Joseph, AoD, Jeff Kleinman, Warren Ellis, Jonathan Coffer and BAK.
