FKA twigs and Central Cee Announce New Song for ‘The King’s Man’


Groundbreaking U.K. artists FKA twigs and Central Cee have announced a special collaboration, “Measure of a Man,” for the soundtrack of upcoming film The King’s Man.

If the name FKA twigs is not familiar to you, this single is a great chance to meet her. Or you can dive into her album MAGDALENE, which was declared on of the best albums of 2019 by NPR, The Guardian, The New Yorker, and Billboard among others. Or, as she has established herself as on of the most innovative artists, performers, producers, and directors of her generation you can check out her Grammy nominated music video for “cellophane.”

Central Cee is also an upcoming name, currently making global waves in a way no U.K. rapper has done before. His breakout single “Loading” is gold certified, and his first mixtape Wild West is the year’s highest selling U.K. debut album. He also won Best Male Artist and Breakthrough Artist of The Year at the GRM Awards. So if you had not heard of Central Cee before, this single is your sign to check him out.

The first release from the film’s soundtrack, “Measure of a Man” is set to premiere in the U.K. as Clara Amfo’s Hottest Record on Radio 1 at 6 p.m. GMT on November 18. However, if you can’t tune in for the premiere you can pre-save the single here so you can stream it as soon as it drops, and a snippet of the song is already available on TikTok.

Telling the story of the world’s first independent intelligence agency, The King’s Man will open in theaters in the U.S. on December 22, but in the meantime check out everything we know about the film here.

LeeAnn is children's librarian who joined Nerds and Beyond in 2020 as a way to stretch her writing skills and connect with others who have the same pop culture passions as she does. She loves music, reading (obviously), and any TV show that can grab and hold her attention. Currently some of her favorite things to nerd out over include Supernatural, Prodigal Son, Louden Swain and Percy Jackson (books, theater, or upcoming show - lets leave the movies out of it).
