Rising artist of the moment, Twinnie, has today revealed a mesmerising acoustic version of her single ‘Social Babies’. The track, which was play-listed at BBC Radio 2, is a taste of Twinnie’s upcoming debut record, set for release in spring 2020.
Recorded at Hoxta HQ, London, Twinnie says of the captivating stripped back version “I wanted to reimagine the track. Although the song is up-tempo I originally wrote it slow then just speeded up, it’s how a lot of my songs are written”. She continues “I think it allows you to hear the emotion and the message of the song a lot more. The track has a strong message inspired by the online culture that we all live in, I wanted to shine a light on social media and all the things it is and not”.
Following a stint of summer dates and festivals, Twinnie will also appear as a special guest to Kiefer Sutherland on his UK and European October tour. Twinnie plays the following Kiefer Sutherland dates, tickets on sale now.
