The music industry is entering the new year with a bang, and now FKA Twigs is ready to throw her best efforts into the ring! She just announced her upcoming mixtape, CAPRISONGS, and it seems very, very promising. Of course, any Twigs project blows our minds, but between her luscious description of the mixtape, the long list of fun features, and the intriguing song titles, we really can’t wait to hear what she has in store for us.
“It’s bronzer in the sink, alcopop on the side, a cherry lolly, apple juice when you’re thirsty, friends in the park, your favorite person, that one sentence somebody said to you that changed everything, a club pre-game, your bestie who is always late but brings the most to the party, meeting a friend at the airport, just togetherness. And my world: London, Hackney, Los Angeles, New York City, and Jamaica. It’s my stubborn Capri Sun [Capricorn] ass telling me to work through my pain by delivering at work, don’t think just go studio and create. My Sagi moon being the enigmatic temptress craving the club, to dance and to be social, and my Pisces/Venus hot mess disastrous heart falling in love all over again. But this time with music and with myself.”
We love that Twigs thought about her zodiac signs while making this mixtape! It’s such a fun twist and we can’t wait to see how it comes through on the record. In the meantime, here’s everything we know about CAPRISONGS. Grab your own Capri Sun and we’re ready to go!
Getting cozy on the couch to daydream about this project like…
Twigs’ last album, MAGDALENE, came out in 2019, and thankfully, we don’t have to wait much longer for CAPRISONGS! The mixtape will be out on January 14th, which gives us plenty of time to recover from The Weeknd’s Dawn FM album before diving into Twigs’ sonic wonderland. She’s the project’s executive producer alongside Spanish artist El Guincho, who worked on ‘Tears in the Club’ as well as several ROSALÍA songs.
CAPRISONGS delivers 17 tracks, including two interludes and the previously-released ‘Tears in the Club’ with none other than The Weeknd! They’re truly a duo we can’t get enough of, and we can’t wait to hear how Twigs’ collabs with artists like Daniel Caesar and Jorja Smith sound. Here’s every song she’s treating us to:
- ‘Ride the Dragon’
- ‘Honda’ feat. Pa Salieu
- ‘Meta Angel’
- ‘Tears in the Club’ feat. The Weeknd
- ‘Oh My Love’
- ‘Caprisongs Interlude’
- ‘Papi Bones’ feat, shygirl
- ‘Which Way’ feat. DYSTOPIA
- ‘Jealousy’ feat. Rema
- ‘Careless’ feat. Daniel Caesar
- ‘Minds of Men’
- ‘Minds of Men (Outro)’
- ‘Darjeeling’ feat. Jorja Smith and Unknown T
- ‘Christi Interlude’
- ‘Thank You Song’
DYSTOPIA offered us a little peek at the day ‘Which Way’ was born with this Instagram shot!
The Cover Art
Twigs claims her rightful place as the “Greatest Of All Time” with this fun cover art, which features “G.O.A.T.” in gems on her teeth. The typography for the gems is by @moonsparkx, a teenage Filipino artist who posted their own Twigs fanart back in November 2021. We love that she recruited a fan to work on the project! The cover also features photography by Mateus Porto, better known for his stunning portraits as Orograph.
And Now, We Wait…
