Torres - aka Macon, Georgia's Mackenzie Scott - says her three album deal with 4AD has been cancelled because she wasn't "commercially successful enough".
Torres' debut for 4AD, Three Futures, was released last year to significant critical acclaim and became one of our favourite releases of 2017. It followed up her 2015 album Sprinter (released through Partisan) and self-titled, self-released 2012 debut.
Revealing the news on Twitter (less than a year after her new deal with 4AD was made public), Torres says: "My former label... has decided to drop me from a three album deal for not being commercially successful enough. I wish them all the best. Also, f*ck the music industry. Xo, Mackenzie."
On Instagram she adds: "Single and ready to mingle!"
My former label, @4AD_Official, has decided to drop me from a 3 album deal for not being commercially successful enough. I wish them all the best. Also, fuck the music industry. Xo, Mackenzie— TORRES (@torreslovesyou) April 16, 2018
This isn't the first time this year 4AD artists (past and/or present) have taken aim at the label - Grimes recently called them a "shit label" as well.
