FKA Twigs recently shared that the mixtape is her “journey back to myself through my amazing collaborators and friends”
It was that week when FKA Twigs made the surprise announcement that she would be releasing a mixtape. It’s unclear when the sounds of this project were recorded or why she decided to start the new year by releasing a mixtape, but Twigs offered some insight into the inspiration behind “CAPRISONGS”. “This album is my journey back to myself through my amazing collaborators and friends,” she wrote in Instagram.
“CAPRISONGS… it’s a suntan lotion, a cherry lollipop, apple juice when you’re thirsty, friends at the park, your favorite person, that phrase someone said to you that changed everything, a pre-play club, your best friend who always arrives late but brings the most to the party, meeting a friend at the airport, just being together. And my world: London, Hackney, Los Angeles, New York and Jamaica is exactly the mixture of sensations that explains my mixtape”, he said. FKA twigs.
“My Sagi moon being the enigmatic temptress who craves the club, to dance and be social and my disastrous Pisces/Venus mess heart falling in love again. But this time with the music and with myself.” Executive produced by FKA twigs and El Guincho, the 17-track project features various artists such as The Weeknd, Daniel Caesar, Jorja Smith, Shygirl and others.
Released during her birth month and Capricorn season, the new work explores her evolution as an artist and human amid the adversities she has faced during her professional and personal life.
