After an incredible six months that have seen her nominated for both the Brits Critics’ Choice and BBC Sound of 2016, Frances prepares to release new single Borrowed Time, impacting on Capitol Records this 22 January.
The release comes ahead of a perform at Manchester’s Deaf Institute scheduled for 13 May.
Written with Howard Lawrence from Disclosure in his garden studio at home in London, Borrowed Time is a special collaboration from the 22-year-old soulstress that sees her trademark gorgeous silky vocals and emotive minimal piano chords twist.
Speaking on the track, she says “”It was amazing to write Borrowed Time with Howard. We were able to create something that stretched me and introduced me to new ways I can use my voice and my sound. It’s also a song we both relate to so that made the writing process so rewarding”.
Frances released her debut EP Grow on Communion Records in June. Less than a year later and the young artist has solidified her status as one of the most important musicians to emerge in 2016; sweeping up nominations for both the Brits Critics’ Choice and BBC Sound of 2016 poll as well as tips for 2016 from Buzzfeed, iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, and Spotify’s ‘Ones to Watch’.
