FRANKIE Drops New EP 'Cocoon,' Explains How She Came Up with the Name - Listen Now!

FRANKIE has dropped her new EP, Cocoon!

The 29-year-old singer, who is one of our favorite up-and-coming artists, has slowly been releasing songs from the EP over the last year and now the full release is here.

Frankie took to her Instagram Stories on Friday (October 15) to explain the origin of the name Cocoon and the writing process for the EP.

Cocoon is finally out in the world! When I started this EP we were in lockdown and I couldn’t go to the studio. I would write songs in my bedroom, record vocals in my closet and have sessions over zoom. All the while I’d look outside my window and see butterflies everywhere,” Frankie said. “I made an intention at the start of the process that I wanted to be a better artist and person by the time I was out of it. I wanted to transform.”

She continued, “I thought of the name ‘Cocoon’ at that moment but then I forgot about it and my intention and went on with the rest of the year. I’m not one to experience manifestation but boy oh boy this time I did. I struggled, got down, lost myself, my purpose, and the path I resisted persisted. At my lowest point I threw my hands up and told the universe I’d go wherever it wanted me to. So I wrote and wrote and wrote songs with @mrmahinui about everything the past decade had taught me. I said yes to going places and letting new people in.”

“One fateful night I met @bratchebeats who introduced me to who introduced me to @austin_myles_grant and the four of us are now bringing all these new songs to life. I grew, processed, healed, and you guessed it, transformed. I now realize I had to go through all of that to get here. To these songs. To this story. To finally make my upcoming debut album. Had to kill the caterpillar to live as the butterfly. So until the album is out, please enjoy Cocoon and know that the last song was made by this out, new crew and a taste of what’s to come. As the song says, ‘So I’ll leave this with you and when I return I’ll be brand new.’ Until then, trust the process. Things don’t happen to you, they happen for you. Love you all,” she concluded.
