Listen to Shygirl and slowthai’s new track ‘BDE’

The London artist has also dropped a short film featuring tracks from her Alias EP

Shygirl has shared a surprise track “BDE” with slowthai, alongside Shygirl BLU, a short film featuring tracks from her Alias EP.

“BDE” is the first piece of new music from the London artist since her EP Alias last year. The accompanying 15-minute video includes visuals for six songs, including “Siren”, “Twelve”, and “Freak”.

Shygirl will hit the road later this year, for a series of sold-out tour dates and festival sets, including a slot at slowthai’s Happyland Festival in Northampton. Also performing is beabadoobee, Greentea Peng, Izzie Gibbs, and Ethan P Flynn, with slowthai headlining the event in the evening.

In the autumn/winter 2020 issue of Dazed, Shygirl spoke about the process behind Alias, which saw the introduction of the rapper’s alter-egos Baddie, Bonk, Bovine, and Bae.

“This is still such a new phase of life for me,” she said. “I think it’s necessary, especially as someone presenting themselves publicly, to confirm that you are not one-dimensional – and you may like me today, but you might not like me tomorrow.”
