Spotify announces Shygirl as UK RADAR Artist



Spotify is thrilled to announce experimental pop artist Shygirl as the next RADAR artist in the UK. She follows in the footsteps of previous UK RADAR artists like Wet Leg, PinkPantheress, Central Cee, Joy Crookes, and Griff.

RADAR is Spotify's flagship artist development programme which launched in March 2020, and represents Spotify’s global commitment to emerging artists. All artists on the RADAR programme enjoy 12 months of support and development where Spotify works closely with the selected emerging artists and their teams to get their music heard and deepen connections with their fans and audiences.

It comes as Shygirl releases her debut album Nymph, alongside the new Diana Kunst-directed video for the album's track "Shlut."

Nymph follows Shygirl's collaborations with FKA twigs on the Caprisongs track "papi bones'' and with Mura Masa on his tracks "bbycakes” and “hollaback bitch” along with the late 2021 offering "Cleo”. Also in 2021, Shygirl shared the slowthai collaboration "BDE" and the self-directed Burberry-styled short film, Shygirl BLU, a live realization of her universally-acclaimed ALIAS EP.

Since the ALIAS EP’s release, Shygirl has gone on to star in Burberry’s AW21 presentation, claim a coveted spot in Forbes’ 30 Under 30, grace the cover of multiple prestigious magazines including ES and V Magazine, and team up with Mura Masa to remix the Lady Gaga and Blackpink track "Sour Candy" for the praised Dawn of Chromatica album.

Shygirl will make her homecoming to the UK to headline Printworks and Albert Hall in London and Manchester respectively in December of this year.
