Tkay Maidza drops her thunderous new track ‘Ghost’, co-written in New York with Sydney glamour girl George Maple and produced by IRL friends George Maple, What So Not and Baauer. ‘Ghost’ is available now via Dew Process / UMA. The five-foot-something force known as Tkay Maidza is currently on her way to the UK and Europe and will be performing a handful of shows, including her first ever show in Paris on November 24 for iconic French electronic label Kitsune, home to the likes of Phoenix, Hot Chip and Two Door Cinema Club, to which she has just inked an international deal.
‘Ghost’ scored a worldwide radio premiere on triple j Drive and online via Pigeons & Planes, who said of the track “Australian artist Tkay Maidza has earned a reputation for consistently delivering eclectic music characterized by colorful raps, catchy hooks, and captivating production. With her new single “Ghost,” she takes it all to the next level. The colossal track is produced by Baauer, What So Not and George Maple, and it’s already making Monday morning a lot more tolerable.”
Tkay explains, “This song was purely made by friends hanging out and vibing…George has random vocals she recorded over really cool, dark melodies and we worked together and expanded it. When we were in New York, Baauer came to hang out and we let him jam out with us and it all came together.”
The 19-year-old powerhouse from Adelaide wrapped up a national sixteen-date tour at the end of October with sold out shows across the country. Tkay Maidza has some of the biggest names in the game spitting her praise (Killer Mike, Charli XCX) and support spots (Mark Ronson, Years & Years, Rita Ora and Charli XCX) by the bucket-load.
Tkay is set to slay the stages of some of Australia’s coolest Summer festivals including This That, Beyond The Valley, Meredith Festival and Lost Paradise.
