With the announcement of her debut album, ‘Hollywood Gypsy’, last week, Twinnie has revealed the video for her inspired pop banger ‘Type of Girl’. ‘Hollywood Gypsy’ is out 17th April on BMG.
Directed by Chris Turner (Ella Henderson, Jax Jones, Birdy) and produced by Thalia Murray (Birdy, Hurts), the hilarious, yet empowering video pays homage to some of the women who have inspired Twinnie, past and present. Speaking of the track Twinnie said, “This is all of me!” she laughs. “The video was influenced by a Vera-Ellen scene in ‘On the Town’. It’s all about women who’ve inspired me, past and present, but it also takes on my personality. I will always be honest & speak my mind, I have strong vision of who I am.”
Recorded between London, Nashville and Sweden, ‘Hollywood Gypsy’ is a pop-country masterpiece filled with irresistible belters. The album is catchy, yet emotive and brimming with charming honest lyrics that draw you into Twinnie’s world. Speaking of the album Twinnie said, “The title of the album pretty much sums me up.” She continued, “I am a traveller by nature and by heritage, so I am quite free. ‘Hollywood Gypsy’ is about me, my life, my artistry.”
The twelve-track album features the extremely hooky and Radio 2 playlisted single, ‘Social Babies’; the infectiously witty track that launched her ‘Better When I’m Drunk’; the anthemic ‘I Love You, Now Change’ written about the pressures she’s faced as a new artist in the music industry; as well as ‘Hollywood Gypsy’.
An amazing journey ushered Twinnie from humble beginnings in York, England to Nashville, TN. This talented songstress, actress, and model has been co-writing with Multi Grammy Award-winning writers and producers, Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift, Shania Twain), Dave Barns (Carrie Underwood, Marren Morris), amongst others.
2019 saw Twinnie headline a sold-out show at The Lexington, play a set of phenomenal Country2Country shows, support the likes of Jack Savoretti and Lauren Alaina, win Best Breakthrough Act at the 2019 BCMA Awards, and appear at a host of UK festivals including main stages at The Long Road Festival and the British Country Music Festival, alongside supporting Kiefer Sutherland on his 2019 tour.
This is 2020 and this is Twinnie. Stand by to be thoroughly, wholly, brilliantly entertained.
