FPA Debuts New Single “Princess Wiko”

FPA—the multifaceted artist Frances Priya Anczarski—today released “Princess Wiko,” the devastating title track of her new album out November 5th, 2021, via 37d03d. “This song is the middle of a journey for our Princess. Here we see her grieving over the memory of a past love and foolishly placing her own worth into the hands of someone who has forgotten her,” explains FPA. “She’s singing ‘I want you for eternity, don’t care if you’re not meant for me; I’ll never say your name in peace, will it keep on haunting me?’ It’s a feeling of eternal desperation…one of rejection, of course, and helplessness. Awaiting validation from an external source is always suffering; especially from a man, in a man’s world.”

“Princess Wiko” follows singles “The Loved One” and “Baby,” which have earned praise and support from The New York Times (Playlist), WNYC’s New Sounds, Consequence (Songs of the Week), Brooklyn Vegan, and more. 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.
