FPA Shares New Single “The Loved One”

FPA, the multifaceted artist Frances Priya Anczarski, today shares her hushed, exquisite new single “The Loved One,” off her new album Princess Wiko, which will be released on November 5th via 37d03d. Produced by Alan De Leon Taverna with art direction by FPA, the song’s accompanying video tells the heartbreaking and bewitching tale of the album’s titular heroine, who grapples with the pain of feeling unworthy of affection, while also knowing love is the vessel that changes us. “‘The Loved One’ is about finding something greater than oneself. It is the moment that our heroine, Princess Wiko, is able to realize that through loving another person, she is able to overcome her own selfishness,” explains the Minneapolis, MN-based musician. “When she gets a taste of what she deems to be true, all-encompassing love—one that surpasses the ‘self’ or ego—it is something that transports her (temporarily) to another dimension of being.”

“The Loved One” follows the velvety lead single, “Baby” .  Written and recorded mainly in FPA’s bedroom over quarantine, the album introduces the work of a master daydreamer. “Princess Wiko is the story of a young woman of noble birth forced to betray her heart, and marry a man she hardly knows, all the while going down the slow path of self discovery,” she explains.
