FEATURED ON ‘BIRDS OF PREY’ SOUNDTRACK ALONGSIDE HALSEY, NORMANI, MEGAN THEE STALLION, LAUREN JAUREGUI, K.FLAY AND MORE—OUT FEBRUARY 7
Fans will get to hear a brand new song, titled “Lonely Gun,” co-written by Cyn and produced by Matias Mora when it is featured on the official soundtrack for the Margot Robbie-lead ‘Birds Of Prey’ film, in theaters nationwide February 7, 2020 (watch the trailer HERE). The soundtrack, which is out February 7 (via Atlantic Records) is available for pre-order starting today and features contributions from Lauren Jauregui, K.Flay, Halsey, Megan Thee Stallion, Normani, Doja Cat and more.
This past fall, Cyn released her highly anticipated debut EP, Mood Swing via Unsub Records. The seven-track collection features production from Lars Stalfors (Cold War Kids, Cuco, St. Vincent) and Matias Mora, and includes three previously released songs, “Never-ending Summer,” which fuses a skittering beat and lush production with sunburst melodies, hailed by Billboard as a “glittering tune,” with an “infectious melody,” and the EP’s hypnotic and hook-y lead single “Holy Roller,” which V Magazine praised for bringing “an unexpected grit to her tender persona,” with Idolator proclaiming it to be “an exemplary showcasing of Cyn’s multifaceted approach to pop,” going on to name it one of their ’75 Best Pop Songs’ of 2019, coming in at No. 8. Also on the EP, Cyn’s poignant pop ballad, “I’ll Still Have Me,” which PAPER Magazine lauded as a “gorgeous song, sung from the soul…imbued with feeling that lingers.” Listen to “Never-ending Summer” HERE.
Also included are four brand-new songs; the gritty and raw EP opener, “I Can’t Believe,” which perfectly captures the “ecstatic feeling of living the dream,” while she was on tour in Mexico with Katy Perry. Other standouts include the heavenly “Angel,” “Bubble Bath,” a quirky, left-of-center jam showcasing Cyn’s light and airy vocals dancing over jittery production and “Nobody’s Keeping Score,” a deeply personal gem of a pop ballad.
Speaking about her debut EP, Cyn shares “In the flurry of so many emotions that is Mood Swing, it would be irresponsible to deny the possible bias that remains over any experience when one’s emotions are electric and sensitive,” she explains. “That said, Mood Swing is not done up. It is not overly styled. It is not according to an outdated commercial standard. It is not aggressively contrasting in colors. Mood Swing is like a Parisian park, not a Parisian burlesque club. Mood Swing is meant for consumption right now and should be thought of as a foundation that can only grow into something grander.”
