Brits Critic’s Choice and BBC Sound of 2016 Nominee
Announces New Single ‘Borrowed Time’
“A raw, unfiltered voice, nurtured in secret and about to echo against the walls of much bigger rooms” – The Quietus
“a sublime talent” – Clash
“Every now and then a vocalist comes along and blows you away, Frances is that vocalist.” – i-D
“Paving the way for a hugely successful future” – DIY
“a surprising change of pace” – Noisey
“sharp, honeyed vocals will likely earn her comparisons to the R&B-borrowing pop of fellow Brits Adele & Sam Smith” – Fader
After an incredible six months that seen her nominated for both the Brits Critics’, Frances prepares to release new single ‘Borrowed Time’, impacting on Capitol Records this January 22nd.
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 and wrap around an explosive, glittery chorus that’s sure to win the hearts of fans and new listeners alike.
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’. With a sold out show at London’s Union Chapel next month and an appearance confirmed at this year’s Coachella, this British crooner is quickly cementing her reputation as the next British voice to be heard across the globe.
‘Borrowed Time’ is out now on Capitol Records.
