YORK country queen Twinnie is releasing Whiplash as the latest single off her 2020 debut album Hollywood Gypsy.
Produced by Jamie Kenney, who has worked previously with Dierks Bentley and Miranda Lambert, Twinnie’s celebration of the “sweetness and strength of first falling in love” is accompanied by a video directed by Fraser Taylor.
Twinnie is seen strolling and running through the deserted streets of London – a very 2020 image – as well as the sun-kissed countryside.
“Whiplash stands alone to me with its sound, which I love,” she says. “It’s about falling in love with someone unapologetically and not caring if it goes wrong or not. Living for the moment and being totally wrapped up in that person.”
Recorded between London, Nashville and Sweden, Hollywood Gypsy was released in deepest lockdown on April 17 on BMG. “The title of the album pretty much sums me up,” says Twinnie.
“I’m a traveller by nature and by heritage, so I’m quite free. Hollywood Gypsy is about me, my life, my artistry.”
