Shygirl shares the new single “Cleo.” The track opens with cinematic strings before diving into a dancefloor-ready beat with crisp hi-hats layered over Shygirl’s vocals luring us into a silver screen romance’

“Cleo” arrives after the slowthai collaboration “BDE” and the Shygirl-directed Burberry-styled short film, Shygirl BLU, a live realisation of her universally-acclaimed ALIAS EP. The project praised by Pitchfork as, “a glittering portal into the future” and prompting NME to note, “Shygirl is in full control of her artistic vision no matter the scale.”
“Cleo” and “BDE” are the first offerings from Shygirl since ALIAS landed last year. The agenda-setting EP and subsequent remix releases were a masterclass in curatorial flare, with Shygirl carefully selecting some of the world’s most exciting producers to enter her world, including Sega Bodega, LSDXOXO, Basement Jaxx, Boys Noize, Arca and late pop pioneer SOPHIE, among many others. 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.
Listen to “Cleo” above and stay tuned for more from Shygirl coming soon.
