Shygirl announces her debut album Nymph, due September 30th
UK-based experimental pop artist Shygirl announces her debut full-length album Nymph due September 30th via Because Music. The 12-track project was created with a close-knit group of friends and previous collaborators including Mura Masa, Sega Bodega, Karma Kid, Arca and Cosha along with the producers Noah Goldstein, Danny L Harle, BloodPop, Vegyn and Kingdom. Nymph reveals Shygirl’s inner self-reflection in experimental vocal tones and deconstructed dance melodies and exhibits a new level of intimacy and emotional depth in her songwriting. To celebrate the project’s announcement, Shygirl shares the lead single “Firefly.” The new glitchy and twinkling club-ready song introduces Shygirl’s new sonic innovation that will be displayed on Nymph.
The news of Nymph follows Shygirl’s collaboration with FKA twigs on the Caprisongs track “papi bones” along with the late 2021 offering “Cleo,” which arrived with a Trinity Ellis-directed music video as well as a live performance of the track from Abbey Road Studios as part of Studio 1’s 90th Anniversary programming. Also in 2021, Shygirl shared the slowthai collaboration “BDE” and the self-directed Burberry-styled short film, Shygirl BLU, a live realization of her universally-acclaimed ALIAS EP.
Since the EP’s release, Shygirl has gone on to star in Burberry’s AW21 presentation, claim a coveted spot in Forbes’ 30 Under 30, grace the cover of Berlin’s influential 032c magazine and team up with Mura Masa to remix the Lady Gaga and Blackpink track “Sour Candy” for the praised Dawn of Chromatica album.
This past March, Shygirl performed a few shows in New York City and Los Angeles, all of which sold out within 48 hours of their announcement. Shygirl will be performing at various festivals across Europe this summer including Primavera in Spain, We Love Green in Paris, Dour Festival in Belgium, Katowice Festival in Poland and many more. Shygirl will also return to the United States for Ladyland Festival in New York City this June and then again in mid-September for Los Angeles’ Primavera Sound.
