Today sees two of the UK’s most groundbreaking artists FKA twigs and Central Cee release a collaboration titled “Measure of a Man” (via Parlophone/MARV Music) taken from the upcoming 20th Century Studios’ film “The King’s Man”.
The single premiered last night on Clara Amfo’s Hottest Record on Radio 1. Speaking on the track FKA twigs said: “This song has such a different sound which is a challenge, you’ve got to really embody the song. For me especially with my vocals, I had to pull a different side of my artistry out” followed by Central Cee who commented that “what I listen to when it comes to trying to find beats is something theatrical, it needs to sound like a movie. And that’s exactly what’s going on with this song, it sounds like it’s made for a movie regardless.”
“Measure of a Man” opens with FKA twigs’ cinematic and arresting vocals. FKA twigs then lures us into a hypnotic RnB fuelled beat before handing over to Central Cee who adds his dynamic touch as he floats across the track.
“The King’s Man” is directed by Matthew Vaughn and stars Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Rhys Ifans, Matthew Goode, Tom Hollander, Harris Dickinson, Daniel Brühl, with Djimon Hounsou, and Charles Dance. “The King’s Man” opens in U.S. theaters on December 22, 2021 and will be available in the UK DATE.
