London-based producer TSHA has announced the forthcoming release of her EP, ‘Flowers’.
To celebrate the new four-track EP, TSHA has released the first single, ‘Sister’. In a statement, the artist said she wrote the track during lockdown after learning she had an older half-sister from her estranged father.
“We spoke on the phone and were texting each other in lockdown and we recently met for the first time. She’s lovely and we got on straight away, so I’m very happy to have a new member of my family as I’ve not had much of that in my life. The song is an expression of all of those feelings,” she said.

‘Flowers’ is set for release on October 16 through Ninja Tune and features collaborations with Gabrielle Aplin and Malian group, Trio da Kali.
“I was searching for Malian singers, as I had fallen in love with the tone and emotion in Malian music and a vocalist called Hawa Kassé Mady Diabaté was recommended to me by Dr. Lucy Duran – a professor of music at SOAS University of London who specialises in West African music,” TSHA said of the track ‘Demba’.
