TSHA returns to Ninja Tune with her long-awaited debut album “Capricorn Sun”, set for release on Friday 7th October 2022.
Recorded over the past two years, the record delivers on the promise of her previous EP’s and Singles with 12 tracks that perfectly encapsulate the emotive blend of underground electronic and hook-laden pop sensibilities.
Capricorn Sun is both a statement of where TSHA is right now as an artist and producer, but also a reflection of time she spent writing and recording the album, and the impact of global events, familial upheaval and personal struggles during that period.
Lead single “Giving Up” features TSHA’s partner Mafro, and was written during a period of strain between the couple (“I feel like that track is a manifestation of our frustrations at the time”).
Other tracks on the forthcoming album hold significance for particular points in TSHA’s life, such as the previously released single “Sister”, written during lockdown after finding out she had an older half sister via her estranged father, and “Water” which picks up on TSHA’s love of the Malian Griot singing traditions (as evidenced on previous single ‘Demba ft. Trio Da Kali’) and features Grammy-winning vocalist Oumou Sangaré.
