Experimental pop artist Shygirl’s deluxe album includes collaboration with Björk, Arca, Erika de Casier, and Eartheater.
The Poison singer has released the first taste of Nymph_o, her deluxe iteration, with a new version of her hit track Heaven featuring Tinashe. The song sees the two artists weave together for an ethereal and dreamy remix that showcases their vocals.
Alongside the track, the singer has dropped an accompanying video, directed by Actual Objects, which depicts the song’s otherworldly and utopian atmosphere. Björk also makes her mark on Shygirl’s deluxe album alongside artists Arca, Erika de Casier, Eartheater and more.
Shygirl’s deluxe version of her debut album Nymph, titled Nymph_o, is out on April 14th.
On Shygirl’s debut release, GAY TIMES’ Lewis Corner wrote: “Hello… Is anyone there? It’s the coochie calling.” That, dear reader, is one of the best lyrics of 2022, which is why it is right at home on one of the best records of the year too. Sexuality has always been a focal point of Shygirl’s music, but on Nymph her soft cooing tone is almost hypnotic over a backdrop of tinned beats and airy synths.
“The collection overall is ethereal electronica at its finest, Shygirl the in-command seductress luring us in with her effortless melodies and breathy vocals. Shlut and Nike are direct and hit harder, but there are softer moments in Heaven and Honey, giving us a broad spectrum lyrically, sonically, emotionally and sexually. No matter the tone, it hits the spot every time.”
