"Fuck the music industry"
Torres has hit out at record label 4AD, after claiming that she was dropped from a three-album deal.
The singer, 27, who released third album ‘Three Futures’ in 2017, hit out at the label on Twitter.
“My former label,
@4AD_Official, has decided to drop me from a 3 album deal for not being commercially successful enough”, she wrote on Twitter.
“I wish them all the best. Also, fuck the music industry. Xo, Mackenzie”
4AD are yet to comment on the reports, but NME has contacted the label for a response.
Responding to the claims, acclaimed duo Tegan & Sara defended Torres after they previously toured together.
“I stood side stage, inspired every single night on tour together. You’re one of my favorite artists and performers”, a tweet from the duo claimed.
Portishead’s Geoff Barrow added: “Sorry to hear but record companies are businesses. If they don’t make money they go bankrupt unless they are funded by posh boys. You have a loyal fan base, connect with them .Go back to basics, I know a lot of bands who have done it and been more financially secure.”
Along with 2017’s’ Three Futures’, Torres also released a 2013 self titled debut and 2015’s ‘Sprinter’.
